William James Norberg was born August 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, MN. 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, TranX, 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.
