LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Sept. 19, 2020, will be forever a day of remembrance for the Norton family. On this day, sadly John J. Norton III passed peacefully in his sleep due to the medical issues he had so bravely fought off the last few years, and the sadness of losing his son John J Norton IV on Sept. 11, 2020.

His loved ones left to carry on his memory are Lorrie, beloved spouse of 26 unforgettable years; beloved sister, Susan Comtois; brother, Paul Norton; John’s other son, Ryan Villanueva, and daughter, Tammy Villanueva; and his five treasured grandchildren, Kyleigh, Lana, Jayden, Jordon and Jack.

John J Norton III was a loving husband, father, brother and son. He was his sibling’s fiercest protector as a young man.

He has now found peace and is free of all the earthly problems. He will be forever missed, more than words can say.

A celebration of life will be held later when family and friends can rejoice together.

Compassion and care entrusted to Jones Mortuary FD311, telephone, 707-263-5389, /
