Sad news to report, one of our true N&W guys passed tonight. You may or may not have known Norris personally, but he was a great friend, like a brother, and as Rick said, greatly missed, he was a big supporter of the hobby and N&WHS.

Rick wrote this far better than I could.

Be at peace big guy!

> Dear BRC Members & Friends,
> It is with much sadness to inform you that Norris Deyerle died at 6:30 this evening, September 1st, in Lynchburg General Hospital's ICU after struggling with many health issues over the past several years.
> Norris has been a huge advocate for railroads and their history, and for all the railroad chapters, organizations and historical societies of which he was a member.
> Norris was Blue Ridge Chapter's President from 1997-2003 and served as our Secretary in 2016. Norris became Blue Ridge Chapter's first chairman of the Virginia Rail Heritage Region Partners, a position which he still held. Norris WAS Lynchburg Railroad Day! There were many others involved in pulling off this event every year...but if it wasn't for Norris, Blue Ridge Chapter's involvement in the annual event would have never happened. Norris will be greatly missed.
> I'll keep everyone posted concerning arrangements once they are made.
> Please keep Norris' family, and all of our mutual railroad friends, in your thoughts and prayers. 
> Sincerely,
> Rick
