Obituary

Kevin Michael Norris, age 55, passed away on February 25, 2021 at his home in Washington, DC. He was born on May 27, 1965 in Waltham, Massachusetts to Jeanette Marie (Marifiote) Norris and the late Edmund Thomas Norris, Jr.

Kevin was a 1983 Waltham High School Graduate in the top 5% of his class. He also attended Bentley University and Massachusetts Bay Community College earning a degree in Criminal Justice, while graduating Summa Cum Laude.

Kevin was a creator of many things beginning his career designing cakes, then becoming a self-taught chef for his successful catering business in Waltham, MA.

In 1993, Kevin moved to Washington, DC, where he began his Personal Training/Professional Life Coach business, Mind Your Own Body, LLC, where he worked with people of all ages, including elderly. Through his company, he organized a variety of adventures for his clients, such as flying trapeze lessons, zip lining, go kart racing, hot air ballooning, sailing and skydiving.

Kevin was a man of many wise words and was a Health, Fitness and Wellness Columnist for the Washington Blade, which geared to the LGBT community. Kevin continued writing for various platforms including his work as Founder and Creative Director of The Power to Be Epic. He also worked in the hospitality industry and his most recent work included volunteering at Bread for the City and Miriam’s Kitchen where he advocated for those suffering from chronic homelessness in Washington, DC, a cause close to his heart.

Kevin was also an environmentalist and life-long artist, who experimented with unique mediums, such as recycled straws, elastic bands and plastics, along with traditional mediums, including water color, acrylic paint and ink. He was the Founder and Creative Director of Preservation Creative and sold his creations at art shows and through social media.

In his free time, Kevin enjoyed the outdoors, meditating, yoga, running and bike riding. He always worked to improve his mental and physical health through exercise and was recently training for a triathlon. It was common for Kevin to challenge himself through competitions. He was even privileged to represent Washington, DC in the Gay Games in 2002 with a 10K road race through the streets of Olympic Park, Australia, which were developed for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Kevin is survived by his brother, Paul E. Norris and sister-in-law, Grace Savoy of Waltham, MA, his sister, Karen M. Corinna and brother-in-law Donald Corinna of Milford, MA, his sister Cheryl M. Mariano and brother-in-law Gerardo Mariano of Sherborn, MA, seven nieces and nephews and many other family members and friends from both Massachusetts and Washington DC.

Close family will hold a private service in honor of Kevin. In lieu of visiting hours and flowers, please share your condolences in the comment section and/or make donations in remembrance of Kevin to https://miriamskitchen.org/ to help end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC. Thank you.

We met Kevin through WARD6 Mutual Aid and immediately felt welcomed. Ceren shared shifts with him and enjoyed his happy personality, warmth and enthusiasm to help others. We were neighbors with Kevin and exchanged a few meals which gave us a chance to try his delicious cooking. Our thoughts and our prayers go out to his family and we hope Kevin is at peace.
