Norm Sabin

On the morning of January 16, 2022, Norm Sabin, of Chattanooga and Crossville, Tennessee, went to be with the Lord at the age of 71, as a result of COVID-related complications.

Norm was born in 1950 to Howard and Helen Sabin. He grew up in Burbank, Ca., and graduated from Burbank High School.  He was an Air Force veteran who served in the Vietnam War and Desert Storm. He had many talents including playing minor league baseball for the Dodgers, being a software engineer in the early days of computer programming, raising quarter horses, and being a military and commercial flight engineer. Later in life he earned his J.D. from Regent University in 1994 and practiced law in Chattanooga and Crossville. In 2008 he formed his own firm specializing in the practice of estate planning. He had a passion for the law and taking care of his clients.

He began every day in prayer and reading his Bible. He loved the Lord, his family, golf, and sitting on the front porch after work with a cigar and a good book. He lived a life of integrity with unshakeable conviction, rooted in justice and the truth of God’s word.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Dennis Sabin. 

He is survived by his wife, Pat; children Zak (DeAyn) Sabin, Kelsey Sabin, and Daris (Kent) Freeman; grandchildren, Joshua (Emily) Longbrook, Madyson, Elleanor, and Olivia Sabin; and great-grandchildren, Judah, Luke, Josiah, and Noble Longbrook.

    Norm had a gentle spirit during our time in high school. A very nice guy I could talk to with ease. Sounds as though he did some great things in life.

    I want to give my condolences to Norm’s family. He was one of my first and best friends in kindergarten. I was so impressed that he could ride a unicycle. Though we didn’t keep in touch, I always admired him and thought well of him. What a sad year. I also lost another childhood friend this year. May he rest in peace. Karen Walther Berg
