Born August 22, 1933 in Brooklyn, NY, to Katherine and Joe Norton who emigrated from Athlone Ireland.  He was the youngest of seven children.  He survived Joe, Kitty, Patsy, Clair, Chrissy and Micky.  Jim grew up in Brooklyn and attended Fort Hamilton High School.   Following High School, James married the late Helen Norton (Kuroski).  He enlisted in the Navy and served four years on a submarine during the Korean War.  He attended Pace University at night while helping to raise the family.  He worked in Finance and Accounting, working his way up the ranks to the position of CFO for Farrell Lines.  He met Priscilla Sampson and spent the last 22 years with her.
