Wayne Norcross - 07-22-2018, 01:29 PM

Wayne Norcross passed away last week. He was a well respected 14.1 player from the Orange County area for many decades. Wayne was a fixture in local events and taught 14.1 to many a player from the region. Orignally from Pennsylvania, Wayne relocated to the Soutnern California area in the 1960's. His knowledge and contributions to the game will be greatly missed.

Thanks for letting us know. Wayne helped me out a lot back when he was the house man at Danny K's. He was a great guy and a great player.

As far as I know, Wayne didn't post. He shot pool.

Very sorry to hear he has died.

Sorry to hear this. I really enjoyed his stories of 14.1 matches against some of the greats.


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

Sad news. He was a likable upstanding man as I knew him from his days as a tournament director. I had heard he was ill.

RIP my friend - 07-25-2018, 11:12 AM

Wayne Norcross was a fantastic pool player and his specialty was 14.1 of course!
Over the years knowing him from 1996 to about 2006, he had told me numerous stories about Mosconi and Butera and how he competed with them and likes of them in the 70's.
He was the tournament director at Danny K's for over a decade and a great sparring partner at the same time.
His slip stroke was unmatched and I've been to many events myself and looked for it and can't find it.
Calvin Coker in Orange County was his sparring partner, competitor and friend in the earlier years.

I am not a world beater but I credit most of my knowledge and patterns in any game to Mr.Norcross.

Rest in peace my friend. I know you are getting the score settled with Mosconi finally. Get it done!
We'll see you on the flip side!
