Norman was born May 9, 1931, in New Castle to Frank J. and Mary W. Tripp. A devoted family man, Norman is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Helen Marie Pendleton Tripp. In addition, he is survived by two sons and their spouses, N. Wayne and Joan V. Tripp and D. Michael and Karen E. Tripp. All children were dear to Norman, but especially his grandchildren and their spouses, Benjamin W. and Anne G. Tripp, Matthew P. and Megan B. Tripp, Craig M. Tripp, and Kelsey R. Tripp; and his great-granddaughter, Margaret Helen (Maggie) Tripp. Norman is also survived by two sisters and one brother, Barbara T. (Bobby) Dudding, Pauline T.

He was preceded in death by six brothers, Lester, Calvin, Lloyd (Bud), John, Everett, Norris (Peck); and a sister, Evelyn. Norman was a diligent and hard-working person his entire life. He began working in his early teens by carrying water to workers on the Department of Highway work crews. He was an employee of Hercules Incorporated at the Radford Army Ammunitions Plant for 34 years prior to retiring in 1987, rising to the position of Shift Supervisor. He was respected and well-liked by the employees he led at the Arsenal. Norman loved his Dry Branch Farm and the home that he built there himself. He was a farmer who raised hay, beef cattle, and hogs for many years. He also worked as a painter throughout Craig County well into his 70s.

He also built furniture and clocks in his home workshop. He was a member of the New Castle United Methodist Church and Mountain Lodge 140 AF & AM. Norman's family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the doctors and nurses of the Third Floor East, the Surgical Intensive Care Unit, and the Sixth Floor East at Lewis Gale Medical Center for their kind and caring assistance during his brief time in the hospital.
