Peter Christian Norgaard

September 30, 1923 — October 2, 2011

Peter Christian Norgaard went home to his heavenly father early Sunday morning on Oct. 2nd. Chris was a loving brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He was the first of 5 children born to Peter and Christine Knudsen Norgaard on September 30, 1923 in Pocatello Idaho. He married Shirley May Gardner on January 22, 1948. They were blessed with 6 children: Rickie Chris (Angelyn), Carl Brent (Linda), Lynn Howard (Julie), Peter Kay (Linda), Judy Ann (Brad) Keith, and Cherie Lynn (Syd) Bristol. Twenty-one living grandchildren have since been added to this lineage, followed by many great-grandchildren. Chris and Shirley were later divorced.
Chris enjoyed gardening and yard work. When he was younger he enjoyed riding Harley Davidson motorcycles and flying airplanes. He made the best banana bread and a mean cup of coffee. He loved spending time with family and friends.
Chris was a milk man for McMinn Dairy for 33 years. He delivered milk door to door and often blamed his bad knees on jumping in-and-out of the milk truck. He later joined his brother-in-law in business at B&G Plumbing, eventually purchasing the counter sales and naming it Chris' Plumbing Supply. He worked there until retirement. He then became a “snowbird”, purchasing a home in Arizona where he would hide from the cold Idaho winter.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Marie and her husband, Herb Seefried, and his sister-in-law Rose Norgaard, and three grandchildren. He will be missed by his brother Carl Norgaard, sister Ellen (Tracy Watson), Anna (Earl Preslar) and his many friends and family.
