Gary L. Norkofski

December 14, 1950 — October 11, 2023

Gary Lee Norkofski, 72 of Oshkosh, passed away at Mercy Medical Center on 10/11/23. Gary was born 12/14/1950, in Oshkosh, the son of Jerome and Elaine (Pollnow) Norkofski. He attended Oshkosh High School and Fox Valley Technical College. He was united in marriage to Sharla Horton on October 3, 1981.


He worked in various employment positions through-out his life, mostly in the printing industry.

Besides his family, his greatest passion was duck and goose hunting in the local marshes. He loved watching old movies and camping. He was a big fan of the Brewers, Badgers and Packers. Most recently he loved sitting on the patio and watching all the wildlife around the pond.


Anyone that knew Gary knew not to take him too seriously. His quick wit and sassy attitude were his MO, but it helped him cope with his multiple medical issues. He received a kidney-pancreas transplant in 1995, which gave him many more wonderful years. He and his family were strong supporters of organ donation. He had many medical challenges but, he met them head on with the help of his caregiver, Sharla, and a wonderful circle of caregivers from numerous medical institutions.

He is survived by his wife, Sharla; children Danielle Norkofski (Bryan Bottomley), Callie Norkofski (Gary Lamp), granddaughter Hayley Sleik; sister and brother-in-law Kathy (Horton) and Kasy King, brother in-law, Randy Horton, many wonderful cousins, and his 4 boxer grand dogs.


He was preceded in death by his parents, Jerome and Elaine Norkofski, grandparents, and in-laws, Garner and Elizabeth Horton.


A time of visitation will take place at 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home, 100 Lake Pointe Drive, Oshkosh. A memorial service will follow. Gary’s wishes were that everyone wear camo, or your favorite Wisconsin sports team apparel.
