Obituary for Melvyn Jorge Norona

February 22, 1943 - April 13, 2019
Elkton, Maryland | Age 76


Melvyn Jorge Norona went to be with the Lord on April 13, 2019. Melvyn was born on February 22, 1943 in the little town of Santiago de la Vegas, Cuba. He came to the United States at the age of 19 and relocated with his family in Saxtons River, Vermont. He graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in Electrical Engineering and accepted a position with the E.I. DuPont Company upon graduation. He was with the DuPont Company for thirty-nine years. While with the DuPont Company, the achievement he was most known for was the development of the Material Management & Maintenance Control System that was referred to as 3MCS. This system was installed in over 20 DuPont Plants. He enjoyed his work and the team members that were responsible for the overseeing of this system.

Melvyn was a member of Grace Bible Chapel for over thirty-seven years and rarely missed a Sunday. He served several years on the Board of Deacons and then as an Elder.

Melvyn was preceded in death by his father, Melvin Norona and mother, Silvia Norona.

Melvyn is survived by his loving wife, Jean; his brother, Carlos Norona; his son, J. Darrin Norona (Julie); his son, Eric R. Norona (Carrie) and his daughter, Heather J. McCoy (Jay). He was richly blessed with six grandchildren who he thought were the greatest.

Melvyn enjoyed working, boating, baseball and vacations that included warm tropical water. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
