Obituary for Joseph Norton

June 21, 2021
Pottstown, Pennsylvania


On June 21, 2021, the Lord called for his loving children, devoted husband and wife, Joseph, and Bernadette along with their beloved son Tyler to be returned to him in Heaven. They entered our lives at different times; however, the Lord chose to call them back as the family he created, joined, and blessed as one, here on Earth. We are truly saddened that they had to leave us so soon, yet Heaven rejoices at the addition of three special angels to watch over all that were fortunate to have known them.
Joseph Alan Norton, age 48, of Pottstown, is survived by his parents, Joseph John Norton Jr and Diane (Baird) Norton, his brother Thomas Norton, his sister's Christine Norton, and Denise (Norton) Brown along with her husband, Stephen and their sons, Derrek, Cameron, Nathan and Parry. In addition to his immediate family, Joseph was loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Joseph was a 1990 graduate of Perkiomen Valley High School. Joe was an all-around sports fan. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed spending his time with family and friends. Joe was sincerely devoted to his wife, Bern, and his son, Tyler. He enjoyed the special bond and relationship he shared with Tyler. He relished watching Tyler play sports and involved himself as much as possible including volunteering and assisting with coaching.

Joseph & Bernadette were married in 2005 and blessed with Tyler in 2008. Joe and Bern were avid "Philly" sports fans. Joe was an "extremely passionate" Eagles fanatic while Bern was an enthusiastic Phillies fan. They enjoyed being heavily involved in all Tyler's activities whether in school or on the field.

Joe, Bern, and Tyler will truly be missed. We encourage all to hold them close to your heart with fond and loving memories. Know they are at home in Heaven, safe and at peace. All who knew them were truly blessed to have them as a part of our lives while they were here. As much as it saddens our hearts they had to go, we must know that they will always be with us in heart, spirit, and memories we will cherish forever. Each of us is blessed to have three special angels looking down and watching over us.

A viewing will be held for Joseph, Bernadette, and Tyler on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, from 5-8 PM at Boyd-Horrox-Givnish Life Celebration Home of East Norriton, 200 W. Germantown Pike, 19401, then on Thursday, July 1, 2021, at St. Aloysius Church 223 Beech St, Pottstown, PA 19464 from 9:30-11:15, followed by their funeral mass promptly at 11:30 AM; mass will be live streamed via the church website
