Jeff Lynn Norris, 54, of Winfield, owner of Norris Music since 1978, and pastor of New Life Fellowship Church in Winfield, died late Tuesday night at Lakeland Community Hospital from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Franklin County Road 69 (Newburg Road once it enters Franklin County).
Winfield Mayor Wayne Silas said "This is a tragic loss for Winfield; we've lost a great guy; Jeff’s heart was for the down and out, he helped hundreds of people.” Norris used his own money to help people and families in the area for many years. Silas said, “Most of all, he was a servant.”
Miles Funeral Home in Winfield is handling the arrangements. Alabama State Troopers are investigating the accident.
