Trevor Thomas Norton, 90, of Lenoir City, passed away peacefully Friday morning, October 5, 2007, at the Hillcrest Nursing Home where he was under hospice care following a year of declining health and a little over a year after the death of his beloved wife, Betty. A native of Birmingham, England where he was born in 1917, he immigrated with his wife and two children, Glyn and Jill, to the United States in 1951. Trevor was the son of Amy and Edmund Norton. He attended the elite King Edward’s Grammar School founded in 1552 by King Edward VI and where he was a champion track star. He also excelled in the game of rugby which he played semi-professionally for nearly 5 years. An accomplished jazz pianist and organist, he studied and mastered the pipe organ under the tutelage of the distinguished organist, Arthur Brueton. During World War II, he was a decorated captain in the British Army and participated in the occupation of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany in the final days of the war. He went on to earn a university degree in industrial engineering at Birmingham University. After immigrating to the United States, he accepted a position in production planning and control with the Ford Motor Co. in Kansas City, Missouri. Shortly after, he was transferred to Detroit, Michigan to continue a successful career at the central headquarters of Ford Motor Company. His career took him back to Europe and to the Middle East. From this experience in Egypt and Iran, he grew to become an astute interpreter of Middle Eastern business culture. His career in the automotive industry culminated when he was appointed Vice President and Managing Director for the operations of American Motors in Costa Rica. For his entire life, Trevor Norton was a devout member and spiritual leader of his church, The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (in more recent years called The Community of Christ). He gave years of service to various Rotary Clubs and was past President of the Tellico Lenoir City Rotary club. In more recent years, he was ardently committed to advancing the cause of adult literacy. He was president of the Loudon County Literacy Council for 8 years. During this time, Trevor brought vision and changes to the council and it's mission to enhance the Lenoir City-Loudon County Adult Education Program. The Tennessee Historical Commission presented the Sequoyah Literacy Award to Trevor, in recognition of his contributions to eradicate illiteracy in Loudon County. His vision led to the establishment of a scholarship program for GED recipients who are pursuing post-secondary education. In order to fund this program he conceived the Adult Spelling Bee, which is now in its 8th year under the sponsorship of the Lenoir City Rotary Club. His legacy will continue to change lives and families in his community. He leaves behind a son, Glyn P. Norton, and daughter-in-law, Victoria, of Albany, New York; a daughter, Jill Hoyles and son-in-law, Jeffrey, of Knoxville and Paducah, Kentucky; his grandchildren, Alexandra Haner (Mark), of Westfield, New Jersey; Leslie Norton of New York City; Erin Hoyles of Tampa, Florida; Trevor Hoyles (Michelle) of Portland, Oregon; his step-grandchildren, Vivian Garcia (Dennis) and Jose de Venecia III, both of Manila, Philippines; his step-grandchildren, Vivian Garcia (Dennis) and Jose de Venecia III, both of Manila, Philippines; and his great-grandchildren, Matthew Haner, Alison Haner, and Dylan Hoyles and step-great-grandchildren, Jaime de Venecia, David Garcia, Katharine Garcia, and Noah Garcia. Like his father and grandfather before him, Trevor remained an active and skillful gardener for most of his life. The gardens he helped his wife, Betty, to establish over the years at their homes in England and the United States are a legacy that will long outlive him and burnish his memory. His ashes, along with those of his wife, Betty, will be returned to the land of their birth where his children will scatter them in a grove of trees that he planted in the far corner of his garden at “Platsdown”, their beloved home in the Devonshire countryside. Memorial contributions may be sent in the name of Trevor T. Norton to the Loudon County Literacy Council, 2145 Harrison Ave, Lenoir City, TN 37771.
