On October 17th, 2023, Thomas James Norton passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home at the age of 88.  Tom was born in Provo, Utah in 1935, and moved to Denver, Colorado after being honorably discharged from the US Navy during the Korean War.  He graduated from the University of Denver—and settled in Boulder, Colorado where he and his beloved wife raised a family, and he engaged in private investing most of his life.  Tom was preceded in death by his parents Pierce Norton and Catherine “Lill” Mountain Norton, his sister Kathleen Norton Jarvis, and his wife Helen White Norton.  He is survived by his children and their partners Derk Norton (Eugenia Szeto), Amy Norton (Tom Beck), Paige Norton (John Riordan) and Aaron Norton (Monica Bottagaro); and by his grandchildren and their partners Phoebe Szeton (Chad Coxon) and Sonia Szeton (Will Minter).  Tom will be laid to rest during a private ceremony in the Louisville Cemetery.
