Jeff Janas

John R. Norton III, who served as Western Growers’ Chairman in 1980 and was an Association Award of Honor recipient in 1985, has died. He was 87. Norton passed away on Sunday April 17, 2016, in Arizona, surrounded by family. His contributions as an industry pioneer and visionary are impossible to overlook and profoundly contributed to the success of Western Growers, helping to make it the forward-thinking organization it is today.
