This cross-shaped headstone is located in City View Cemetery in Salem, Oregon. The marker reads "Larry Norman, Evangelist without portfolio, 1947-2008, Bloodstained Israelite." Immediately to the left of the marker is a mailbox (whose purpose or symbolism is unclear to me).

Christian rock historian John J. Thompson wrote, "It is certainly no overstatement to say that Larry Norman is to Christian music what John Lennon is to rock & roll or Bob Dylan is to folk music." Born in Corpus Christi Texas, Norman released more than 100 albums. He is a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and the Contemporary Christian Music Hall of Fame.
