Stanley Kent Norris of Blacksburg, born May 8, 1953, passed away on Monday, December 5, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Martha Norris.

Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Bobbie Jean “BJ”, and his sons, Joshua and Benjamin; his five younger brothers and their wives, Bruce (Laura), Key (Mary), Phillip (Stacy), Bill (Elizabeth), and Glenn (Nancy); nephews Sam and Michael; and nieces, Emily and Danielle.

A 1976 graduate of Virginia Tech, Stan was a true Hokie. He loved all sports but especially enjoyed football and basketball. He was an avid skier, spending much of the winter months volunteering as an instructor for Wintergreen Adaptive Sports and coaching for Special Olympics. Stan’s next love was hiking – he had covered most of the Appalachian Trail in Virginia. He would also spend hours shore fishing at any ocean beach he could get to – although rarely actually catching anything.

A memorial service will be held at Blacksburg Baptist Church on Saturday, December 10, at 11 am with visitation from 10-11 am at Blacksburg Baptist Church, 550 N. Main Street, Blacksburg, VA, followed by a reception in the fellowship hall.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for memorial donations to Special Olympics Virginia – Area 9, 1100 S. Main Street, Suite B, Blacksburg, VA 24060 or online at

The family is in the care of McCoy Funeral Home in Blacksburg, VA.
