Dr. Norton Medline passed away peacefully on August 10, 2020 after a sudden illness. Lifetime love and best friend of Gloria Medline for 62 years. Son of the late Mamie & Bobby Medline, and son-in-law of the late Lou & Mary Mactinger. Proud father of Ruth Biddell and Paul Medline (Susan Shiller). Loving grandfather to Jason, Danny & Stephanie Biddell; and Eli & Alexandra Medline. Devoted brother and brother-in-law of Alan & Judy Medline, Marty Mactinger, and the late Karen Liberman. Dear Uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Nort and Glo travelled the world together, walked hand-in-hand through many adventures, and built a rich life surrounded by family and friends. He was devoted to Israel and a man of many passions. As a dermatologist and pathologist, he was highly respected by his patients, and a role model to his colleagues.
Norton gave his love freely and lived life to the fullest. He opened his heart to all those around him and accepted people for who they were. He touched many lives with lasting impact. A great listener, an amazing storyteller, a loyal friend, a gentle leader. He will be deeply missed and will be in our hearts forever.
