Uncle Norm was always warm and loving. He had a kind and gentle soul, and will greatly missed. Rest in Peace. My love to all who were fortunate enough to share this journey with him.



I was fortunate to know Norman in his later years and what a wonderful human being he was! He was a warm and funny guy and one that I could talk with and get tips about remodeling. He will be remembered for his gentle and caring soul. May those who knew and cared about him always feel blessed by the experience: .I am!
