Norman Joseph Lewis Jr., born April 14, 1977, began his journey home on August 13, 2023. Norm was a proud father of six and a devoted husband to Patricia Anne Scott. Norm was a son, grandson, big brother, nephew, cousin, avid community member, athlete, coach, and friend. He was especially known for his gift of gab, taking care of his aunties, and for having a big heart that was full of love for his friends and family.
Throughout his life, he created many strong bonds and friendships with people throughout the states who all shared his love of hunting, fishing, and sports. He poured his heart into his family and would do anything to make sure they were taken care of and provided for. His contagious laugh and boisterous personality will be greatly missed.
Norm worked for many tribal departments for many years. In recent years he was known as “the skidder guy” for Hoopa Forest Industries (HFI) and was often the spokesperson for his crew. His work pards relied on him to run the heavy equipment. His presence and hard work ethic will be missed. He absolutely enjoyed cutting wood and running his chainsaw. Norm was very proud to be part of a logging family.
Norm is known for his generous heart. He made sure his family always had wood, salmon, deer meat, etc. He was an amazing brother, son, nephew, and cousin who would show up randomly at his aunties’ and family members’ houses to drop off wood or special goodies that he pulled from the river.
Norm enjoyed cruising up in the hills with friends or family. He would often spend hours visiting and telling stories about his kids’ accomplishments and how proud of them he was. Taking care of his friends and family was something he was most proud of. For many years he took care of his old grams-Dolores. Their relationship was very special. She was the only person who could put him in his place and he would not argue with her.
You could always find Norm on any court, mat, field coaching, and/or cheering as loud as he can. He was a dedicated coach and the No. 1 fan for his kids in everything they do. At times, Karen and Tyler would have to give him the side eye because he would get too excited during a game or match. Norm was known to be very passionate about helping his nieces, nephews, little cousins, and local youth. He opened his home to many youths over the years for them to practice their skills, and have a warm place to eat and a place to stay.
Norman is survived by his wife Patricia and his children, Devin Price, Roman Price, Karen Lewis, Tyler Lewis, Landon Madison, Katherine Lewis. He is also survived by his dad, Norman Lewis Sr.; his siblings, Kristi Lewis (Lizzie), Bronson Lewis Sr. (Aninda), Joseph Lewis, and Stormy Lewis; his uncles, Clarence “Sling” Lewis (Debbie) and Earl Moon; his aunties, Francene Lewis, Tina Lewis and Brenda Lewis; his great aunties, Marcellene Norton, Alvera Houston, Mildred Montgomery, Marilyn Lewis (Gaylord), Kayo Moon and Roosi; and his chosen brother, James Gensaw. Norm had many, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who all had a place in his heart.
Norman is preceded in death by his son Steven Lewis, daughter Stephanie Lewis, mother Karen Moon, grandmothers Delores Moon and Margret Lewis, grandfathers James Moon III, and Clarence “Buck Lue” Lewis Sr.
Service will be located at the Hoopa Cemetery at 10 a.m., Saturday, August 19, 2023. The reception will be held at the Neighborhood Facilities (NF) Gym after the service.
