Norman Burton Storrs

Sep 16, 2020

Beloved Husband, Dear Father, and Grandfather.

Norman Burton Storrs of Ogunquit, Maine and Tucson, Arizona passed at his residence in Ogunquit, Maine on September 8, 2020.

He was born July 25, 1934 in Bennington, Vermont, son of the late Earle E. Storrs and Laura E. (Beebe) Storrs. For the past 19 years he made his home in Tucson, Arizona and Ogunquit, Maine.

Norman was educated at Burr & Burton Academy in Manchester, Vermont. He attended college at Norwich University (Class of ’56) in Northfield, Vermont where he developed his leadership skills, and honed his “command voice.” He served in the Army, stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia and Fort Bliss, Texas, and earned the distinction of being an Army Ranger.

Norman had an accomplished career in the banking industry, most notably as Regional VP for Vermont National Bank, then Chairman, President and CEO of Nashua Trust Company. Norman was a Rotary Paul Harris Fellow. He ended his professional career as Director of Economic Development for the State of New Hampshire in 1998.

While a resident of Ogunquit, Norman supported the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, and served on the board of St. Peter’s by the Sea Episcopal Chapel. With his wife, Jeanine at his side, Norman traveled the world, and enjoyed seeing the Seven Continents. He experienced an African Safari, Antarctica, the beautiful country of New Zealand, and much more.

He was preceded in death by his wife Donna (Allen) Storrs (1937 – 2000). Norman was fortunate to be able to find love twice, marrying Jeanine M. (Roberts) Storrs in June 2001. He is survived by three daughters and sons-in-law, Susan and Arthur Goldsmith of The Woodlands, Texas, Linda and William Stiles of Brookline, New Hampshire, and Barbara and Larry Sage of Fleming Island, Florida; step-son Eric Andrews and wife Kaki of Wells, Maine; six grandchildren, Erica (Goldsmith) Batterman, Diane Goldsmith, Laura Stiles, David Stiles, Courtney Sage, and Kendall Sage; three step-grandchildren Maddie Andrews, Betsy Andrews, and Gary Andrews; a sister Priscilla (Storrs) Grummer of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and several nieces and nephews.
