Norton passed away Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, at a Las Vegas care facility, his son said. Norton was 70. Norton had been in poor health for the last several years after suffering a series of strokes, a friend of his said. Gene Kilroy, who was Ali's former business manager, says he's sure Norton is "in heaven now with all the great fighters." (AP Photo/File) (AP Photo/File)
