Raising Funds to Fight Cancer: Tim Norton Memorial Golf Tournament

Have you ever meet anyone that struck you as remarkable?  A great person to be around, easy to get along with, unique…one of a kind.  You feel as if this person is one of those rare and wonderful people we sometimes call … ‘gifts from God’.

The imprint that Tim Norton left on us, was just that.  Today we honor an amazing colleague, loyal friend, business man, faithful father & husband, brother; just an exceptional person.  Our 3rd Annual Tim Norton Memorial “Real Cool” Golf Tournament kicks off at 1pm on August 18th at the beautiful Robert Trent Jones Golf center at Hampton Cove.  We celebrate Tim’s life, on the greens, remembering him through by playing a game he loved and through the lens of fun times.


Tim worked for Building Plastics, Inc. as Regional Manager for 16 years.  He loved to hunt, travel, an avid Alabama football fan, golfer and a “Real Cool” person. Tim had a heart for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and their amazing work in “Finding cures & Saving children”.  He filled our days with joy and laughter; he touched the lives of all who knew him and he remains in the hearts of many.

Tim Norton left this earth peacefully on Saturday evening, March 10, 2012, to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He leaves behind his wife, Karen Perkins Norton, daughter, Lacey Norton Lumpkin, son, Jarrod Norton, sisters Cindy Norton and Tammy Norton, sister-in-law Christy Perkins and brother-in-law Butch Perkins, one nephew, two nieces, and a host of close friends that he considered family.

Tim will be missed dearly, but his memory lives on.  We raise funds, in his honor, to help others fight against cancer.  Join us in our efforts and support the Tim Norton Memorial Golf Tournament.  Hope to see you swing’n!
