HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio (WTRF) – Harrison County is mourning the loss of one of its commissioners.

Dale Norris passed away on Saturday after a courageous battle with cancer.

7News spoke to Commissioner Paul Coffland who said Dale was known to many as a long-time public servant of Harrison County.

He spent the last 10-years as a commissioner. Before that, Norris worked in the Highways Department. He was also heavily involved in the community, had coached little league and was a past president of the Fair Board.

He will be missed; from his knowledge, his understanding of how the county works and his vision of where he wanted the county to go. He was a great family man and he will be greatly missed.
