My condolences to Norm's family. The only way I can describe Norm is to say he was a character with character. He once sang at my daughter's graduation party. Everyone enjoyed his impromptu variations in the songs and stylish wit. We once shared an afternoon together in a pub by the Atlantic Ocean where he regaled me with his many experiences. He was truly a pleasure to be around. I know he will be missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to know him.
Norm had no idea how many people he had impacted. He was a friend of my Mom and Dad in Toledo back in the 70's and 80's,. He and Mary used to come over for parties , he would always take a session or two on my drum set and sing like Lew Rawls. I was in retail sales for a number of years, he would always tell me when you want a real sales career let me know. In the late 80's he got me in at Pitney, I worked there for almost 20 great years, I am retired. Every where I went throuhout the country with P.B. I would ask if the knew Norm, oh "Stormin Normin", they would ask? he really was a P.B. legend. Over the years I had at least 5 friends hired in due to him getting me my job. As they say God broke the mold when he made Norm. Thanks for all the great memories !!!
To the Family and of many of us, who were friends and workers with Norm.
He had a great impact on me, and I will never forget his fairness,love of country,Family, workers and Friends.
May God bless you in heaven Norm Mckenna, we all loved you.
Good-bye......and thanks for everything.
