Norman Edward Wimberley was born April 15, 1948, in Bainbridge, the son of Edward Ford Wimberley and Lille Pearl Clay Wimberley. He was a 1966 graduate of Bainbridge High School and served his country honorably in the United States Air Force. Norman was a member of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Norman retired as an aircraft mechanic with Flightline of Tallahassee, FL.

Many folks remember “Stormin Norman” for his love of all things fast, others will remember his days at his auto body shop where he had the distinction of doing it right or not at all. Norman always said that he was a “recycled teenager” and lived life to its fullest and had no regrets. He lived his life always on the move and loved every second of it.

Survivors include his sons, Ryan Wimberley and his wife, Michelle, of Bainbridge, GA, Aaron Wimberley of California, and Erich Wimberely of Arizona; his grandchildren, Nicholas, Megan, Sam and Lilah; and his great-grandchild, Scotland; his sisters, Geraldine Anderson of Bainbridge and Edwina Kelly of Camilla, Ga.. Norman was preceded in death by his parents, and his siblings Gloria Anderson and Steve Wimberley
