Norris Stevenson worked as my assistant Security Director, in a new high rise in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During his first month, I noticed how much Norris cared about our tenants, visitors, and our security staff.
Each and everyday Norris would come to work with an infectious smile that never ended. He memorized our tenants names and treated each one of them to a "good morning" or "good afternoon".
Norris was sincere and generous with those who had troubles and needs. He always took time to listen to people and help them thru their difficulties.
During the holiday's, Norris and his wife Cheryl would make plates of food for our security staff so they were not left out during Christmas and Easter. Norris touched many hearts in our building. Helping those in need with a meal or money. He will be dearly missed by my staff as well as our tenants.
When I was with Norris and his family, it was revealed to me that they had no money to cover funeral costs and existing medical bills. The Stevenson family has absolutely no money to cover the impending costs of cremation and a service for their father and husband.
I am hoping that within the next ten days I might be able to raise enough money to pay for the funeral expenses and assist his wife Cheryl with medical bills and keeping her afloat during this difficult transition. Norris was the sole bread winner of his family. Cheryl is on disability and cannot work. The need is great and I hope you read more about Norris Stevenson below.
Thank you for reading this tribute of a man that cared more for others, than he did for himself! God loves those who put others first. I love this man and always will.................

Norris fell gravely ill almost a month prior to the Lord calling him home. Even through his final struggle, he still maintained the steely resolve that we all know so well. He fought hard until his final moments which were spent surrounded by his loving family and with God in prayer.
I, Keith Sexton will assist Cheryl Stevenson (wife) with the final expenses of the funeral, service, and his medical bills.
