Steve was a disabled veteran of the U.S. Army having proudly served our country during the Vietnam War. He belonged to several veteran organizations.
He dedicated his life to the love of his life, his wife. He was a rock in the eyes of his children and a hero as a paw-paw. His unique sense of humor was legendary and his “ditty songs” will be passed on for generations to come.
His home was filled with love, laughter and acceptance. Simply put — he was loved.
Steve is survived by his loving wife, Doris; seven children, Loretta Williams and husband Barnes, Stacy Yates-Ward, Michelle Fairfield-Ford and Jason Shoulta, Steve Norsworthy II and Abigail Good, Shawn Fairfield and wife Autumn, James Norsworthy and Nathan Powalish; 17 grandchildren; three sisters, Shirley Hagan, Cheryl Ann Peek and Sheila Giltner; a special brother-in-law; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Woodrow Noble and Loretta Belle Kreutzer Norsworthy; his stepmother Jewell Norsworthy; and one sister, Vickie Belle Powers.
Funeral service was held Tuesday at Miller Funeral Home in Metropolis with Rev. Glenn Coram officiating.
Burial followed at Otterbein Cemetery in Pope County with military graveside rites conducted. Pallbearers were Steve Norsworthy II, Jimmy Norsworthy, Shawn Fairfield, Andy Powers, Josh Wiley, Nathan Powalish, Travis Stephens and J.D. Ward.
