Rick Norton Jr. Obituary, Death – We are very sad to hear that Rick Norton Jr., Founder of Callies Performance Products and Energy Manufacturing Ltd. passed away over the weekend. Rick’s son Heath Norton confirmed the news on his FB page, saying in part: “It is hard to loose your boss, friend, mentor, and most importantly, your father all at once, but I live with the comfort of the many conversations and lessons he taught me to keep our dreams alive and execute our plans for Aviation, Callies and Energy. “Godspeed on your trip dad, I do not have words to explain what you meant to me. I adore you and will always carry you in my heart. Today we grieve, tomorrow we produce crankshafts, connecting rods, camshafts and engine blocks. Just as he would expect and demand of us.”
The Engine Builder team got to visit Callies numerous times over the years, and got to spend time just last summer with Rick and Heath to talk about how Callies came to be the great company it is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDUdFMvYhk4
RIP Rick, and the Engine Builder team is thinking of the entire Norton family.
