William James Norberg, age 73, of Cambridge, Minn., passed away very peacefully on April 21, 2019, at Regina Hospital in Hastings, Minn. He had been struggling with Parkinson’s Disease for the past years.
William was born Aug. 29, 1945, in Bradford Township to Andrew and Anna (Oman) Norberg.
On May 7, 1990, he was united in marriage to Patty Jo Christenson and they made their home in Cambridge, Minn. William went by several different names – Jim, William, Bill Jim, Big Jim – just depended on who he was talking to at the time. Jim was an over-the-road trucker for many years and worked for several different trucking companies: Hart Motor, Old Dutch, M.W. Ettinger Transfer, TransX, Dayton Freight and really enjoyed running up and down the road meeting and making many good friends. In his spare time he enjoyed his motorhome and camping. He was the best handyman a woman could ever want, nothing was too hard for him to repair or fix.
Jim is survived by his wife Patty Jo Christenson of Cambridge; daughter Debbie (David) Treadwell; son Chad (June) Norberg; step-sons Chad (Jodine Janzen) Christenson, Zachary Christenson; 10 grandchildren; brother Kenneth (Sara) Norberg; many nieces and nephews, other relatives and lots of friends.
Jim was preceded in death by his mother Anna Oman; father Andrew Norberg; brothers Albert Nelson, Martin Norberg, Wallace Norberg; sisters Louise Polzin, Lavonne Anderson and Gladys Corrier.
A special thank you to Dr. Lon Peterson and nurse Courtney at Regina Hospital for the wonderful care in his last hours of life.
