He was born April 28, 1918, in Jacksonville, Texas, and moved to Sylvester as a child where he grew up. The family then moved to Pumpkin Center, Texas, north of Lamesa, where they lived until 1940 when they moved to Ackerly. He farmed in Ackerly until his retirement.

While in high school, he played football and basketball, ran track and was on the FFA National Dairy Judging team. He received a scholarship at Texas A&M for football, but due to his father's health he had to stay home and help run the farm.

Norman served on the Ackerly school board, volunteered at the Big Spring State Hospital Chalet for many years and was very active in the American agricultural movement in 1979 until 1980. He loved traveling, fishing and camping with his wife and children.

Survivors include one daughter, Mary Ann Talbott and husband David of Big Spring; one son, Phil Wallace and wife Barbara of Lubbock; 11 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Glenda Fay Wallace; one daughter, Brenda Davis; and his parents, Thomas Lee and Vinnie Wallace.
