Obituary for Albert R. "Cork" Norcross

Albert R. “Cork” Norcross, 68, of Chambersburg, passed away on Monday, December 2, 2019 in Manor Care Health Services. Born in Chambersburg, he was a son of the late Ray E. Norcross and Mary Miller Norcross of Chambersburg.

A graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School, Cork had worked for PennDot for 35 years, retiring as a purchasing agent in 2005. He was a member of the Central Presbyterian Church in Chambersburg and an active member of the Chambersburg Memorial YMCA. Years ago Cork was also very active with the Chambersburg Road Runners. He greatly enjoyed gardening, working in his yard, and all kinds of music - especially Bluegrass.

So sorry to here of Cork’s passing, he will be missed by so many. Cork was always a special cousin. I enjoyed as a teen sitting for he, and his siblings, we always had fun, unbeknownst to my aunt Sally, and dear Uncle Tubby. I remember we once almost knocked over the family Christmas tree while I was watching them. Cork, you were an amazing man, an avid runner, so full of energy, and a lovely human being. You are at peace now Cork, pain free, and healed completely. At last you have touched the face of god. Till we meet again in heaven Rest In Peace my dear, you were loved by this cousin.
My sympathy to all the family, especially my Aunt Sally. I love you all.😊♥️🙏🏻
