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.
Norm great job running the Cleveland branch with Bob Siers all those years. With great leadership employees will follow, and you two were great leaders.
Norm thanks for not yelling at me too much when I sideswiped your car on a sales call. I'll always remember that you were one of a kind who gave me my first opportunity in sales. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your entire family.

70 years is our life span. 80 years with special mightiness. (Psalm 90:10) Norman had 89 years of special mightiness. May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of the times you spent together as you celebrate a life well-lived."
Dear Lynn and Tim,
My sincerest sympathy to both of you. Uncle Norman was always such a wonderful, dynamic and entertaining man. He and your Mom were always loving and so good to me, Gayanne, and my Mom and Dad. We loved them both so much. Your dad will be missed and remembered with loving fondness by so many. I can still hear him singing "That's Life " to my Mom at her birthday party. He loved life and I loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Tim Leistner
