Brandon Norbury Death, Obituary – Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the Gresham Fire Department as you mourn the death of Firefighter Brandon Norbury. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. He was a member of the Gresham Fire Department. His passing happened suddenly and without any prior notice.
Tragically, Firefighter Norbury passed away on the job on February 3, in the early hours of the morning, while he was participating in a training exercise. The incident took place in the early hours of the morning. In the performance of his duties, he was carrying out the tasks assigned to him.
An unanticipated medical condition presented itself to Firefighter Norbury when he was in the middle of his training. After getting medical aid at the location, he was moved to a neighboring hospital, where it was revealed that he had gone dead just before midday.
It was determined that blunt force trauma to the head was what ultimately led to the person’s demise. As a volunteer fireman and a member of the United States Coast Guard, Firefighter Norbury devoted his whole life to serving both his country and the community in which he lived. He died doing what he loved most: helping others.
After having served his country as a U.S. Navy Seal for 18 years, he went on to work for the Gresham Police Department for 7 years, and then after that, he worked for the Gresham Fire Department for 15 years. In total, he had worked for both departments for a total of 22 years.
Over the course of his career, he has amassed a combined total of 24 years of work experience from each of these organizations. During this trying time, we are asking all members of the community to remember the families who have been affected by the Norbury and Gresham Fires in their thoughts and prayers. We are very sorry for the loss of life that has occurred as a result of these fires.
