Daniel Norman Marsing, Jr., age 67, died 6 December 2022 following a lengthy illness.
Known by all as Norm, he was born June 7, 1955 in Durango, Colorado, to Daniel Marsing Sr. and the late Bonnie Marsing. Norm spent most of his growing up years in Moab, Utah and graduated from Grand County High School in 1973. He then enlisted in the US Navy and served primarily during the Cold War era. His time on the USS Enterprise was a topic he loved to talk about and represented many of his fondest memories. Travel remained a love of Norm’s and he lived and traveled in an RV for much of his retirement. He loved motorcycles and desert camping, preferring a quiet life and often talking about how living off grid would be the ultimate. His kids and grandkids represented his true pride and joy. He would have gladly given his last dime if it meant they would have what they need. Nieces and nephews were also near and dear to his heart, and his favorite target for teasing. As his whole family would attest, if he teased you, it was a clear sign he loved you. Norm had a crazy good memory and was instantly a tour guide at any monument, battlefield, or museum. He was a wealth of information on all things mechanical as well, preferring a vehicle he could work on and taking pride in keeping it going. He enjoyed debating religion or politics, no topic was off the table. He loved to read, especially books about war, the apocalypse, or science fiction. He could read faster than anybody and recall books he’d read years ago as if he’d just finished them. The book is always better than the movie, but Norm loved the movies too. Going to the movies was his favorite go-to social activity. He was always the life of any party and will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
Norm is survived by: his father Daniel (Jolene Dalton) Marsing, Sr., his brother Mark (Monica) Marsing, his children David (Mandee) Leech, Tiffani (Chris Mayes) Marsing, and Jared Marsing as well as his grandchildren Tyler Leech, Adrienne Leech, Kendis Leech, and Jaiden Leech.
The family would love if you have a fond memory with Norm, that you share it here for all to partake in.
