Norman Gale-Elijahjuan Cushinberry, loving named after his maternal grandfather, was born on March 18, 2000 to Antonette Gene' Cunningham-Williams. At the age of 3 years, Gene Williams entered his life, becoming his father.
Norman was the fourth born, after elder brothers De'Anthony and Brendan, his sister Prestyn and followed in birth by younger brother Jason.
Norman is survived by his parents, Gene and Antonette, siblings De'Anthony (Summer), Brendan, Prestyn (Trayvon), Jason and JaVaughn, grandparents Norman & Brenda Cushinberry and Susan Trotter, as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, loved so much he referred to them as family.
Norman graduated Pratt High School a year early at the age of 17. One of the greatest things his mother remembers him saying was upon graduation when asked, "What will you do after you graduate?" he responded, "I'm gonna do me!"
Norman spent the last three years doing exactly that-him! His second love was creating lyrics and beats to pave his way into the music industry. He aspired to become successful enough to take care his first loves-his "Queens and his family."
A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held July 7th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. in a beautiful park setting in Topeka, KS.
Memorials may be made to the donor’s choice in memory of Norman, and sent in care of Hutchinson Funeral Chapel & Crematory, 300 E. 30th Ave., Hutchinson, KS 67502.
