     GABE A. NORRIS, 13

   September 9, 2004 - August 1, 2018

Gabe A. Norris, 13, of Markle, passed away at 6:06 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018, at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis with his family by his side.

Gabe lost his life due to a tragic farming accident that happened on July 15, 2018. He was born Thursday, Sept. 9, 2004, in Fort Wayne. Gabe would have been starting the eighth grade at Norwell Middle School. He was a member of the cross country, wrestling, and track teams. He had a love for life, being around people, and a knack for being good at anything he set his mind to. Gabe loved spending time on the Salamonie Reservoir skiing, riding dirt bikes, golfing, and following his dad and grandpa around the family farm. With his cousins Josh and Grant living close by, the three boys were always getting into something fun. In the evenings, Gabe would unwind by watching movies or reading. His personality was truly one in a million and his impact on the entire community was remarkable. He has brought together a community of thousands, to stand as one. #flyhighgabe
