Joseph Raymond Normington

December 19, 1993 ~ May 6, 2022 (age 28)


Joseph Raymond Normington passed away on Friday, May 6.   As a young boy he lived and made friends on three continents, and he was most happy when surrounded by “all the kids.”  As a young man and adult he was a loyal friend to many.

Joe was born in San Ramon, California and graduated from Gateway School in Santa Cruz and Los Gatos High School.  He was baptized at Saratoga Federated Church in 8th grade.   He earned his BA in Communication from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont.  He was interested in almost every sport, playing over the years baseball, soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, and rugby.  His passions were skateboarding and snowboarding, and he learned to surf at Waikiki and scuba dive in Maui.  He was working part time and taking an online program with Arizona State University to prepare for teaching English in Japan or Korea, which he planned to do in 2023.

Joe is survived by his mother, Kathleen and father, Kim, of Los Gatos, CA, his grandmothers Joan Normington of Folsom, CA, and Georgette O’Brien of Walnut Creek, CA, and ten aunts and uncles and four cousins.

Friends and family are invited to a memorial service on Sunday, June 5, 2022 at 3PM at Saratoga Federated Church, 14370 Saratoga Avenue, Saratoga, California.  The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to The Skatepark Project :
