Vance Norum by OPEC Staff | Apr 20, 2015 | Obituaries Salinas Valley State Prison reported the passing of Staff Psychiatrist Vance D. Norum on April 19. 4 Comments Lori Anderson Norum on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 9:21 am Dr. Norum was my husband. His entire life was spent helping others. I used to tell him that he had more degrees than a thermometer! He started as an engineer in aerospace, then PhD in Psychology and then MD. Went to medical school when he was in his 40s. Always striving and learning. I am grateful for our time together.
