Alexander Norzow

It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce that Dr. Alex J. Norzow fell asleep peacefully in the Lord after a short battle with leukemia Thursday night February 7, 2019. He was born in Kiev, Ukraine on June 20, 1939 to Ivan and Anna Norzow. He immigrated to the United States in 1951 and became an all-American success story. He was a man with a big heart who loved the Lord with all his heart, mind, and soul. He was truly a blessing to everyone he came in contact with and he strove to help those who were less fortunate than he. Everything that Alex tried his hand at he was good at. He was a gifted doctor and delivered around 5,000 babies at Parkview Adventist Hospital and went on numerous medical missionary trips to Africa, Russia, and South America. Alex loved to build things, especially houses, garages, and cars with and for people. He was also a talented musician and played at least 10 instruments. But most of all He absolutely loved to fish and would stay out on the water all day with his fishing friends. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He is survived by his wife Carolyn, his sister Lucy, sister-in-law Florence, his son Eric and wife Patty, grandchildren AJ, Norman, Daniel, Evan and Matthew, three step daughters, four step grandchildren, and seven step great grandchildren, and his beloved pups Allie and Danny. We will see him again on that great day when Jesus returns.
A celebration of life will be held Sunday February 17, 2019 at 1pm at the Brunswick Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

A Letter from Heaven

When tomorrow starts without me,

and I’m not here to see,

If the sun should rise and find your

eyes, filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,

the way you did today,

While thinking of the many things,

we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,

as much as I love you,

And each time you think of me,

I know you’ll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me,

don’t think we’re far apart,

for every time you think of me,

I’m right there in your heart.
