Obituary Condolences

Norton F. Englehart 1931-2012 AGAWAM, MA Norton Franklin Englehart, 81, died June 23, at Kindred Park View Hospital in Springfield. Born in Washington, D.C., he lived for many years in Longmeadow. He was predeceased in 2005 by his wife of 44 years, Sarah. He attended the University of New Hampshire and was an Army veteran of the Korean conflict. He was employed by the Pratt and Whitney Div. of United Technologies Corp. for 35 years retiring in 1991. He is survived by two sons: John and his wife Page of Westport, Conn., with grandsons Clay, William and George, and Peter and his wife Renu of East Greenwich, RI, with grandsons Nicholas, Duncan and Cooper. He also leaves his dear friend and companion, Barbara G. Piccin. There will be no funeral, church service or calling hours. It was his wish that his bodily remains be donated for the education of medical students. The preceding passage was written by Norton; ever-insistent on having the last word, his sons would like to add that their father was a gifted water color artist, a lover of music, a sailor, and an admirer of all manner of craftsmanship. He loved cars, travel, Vermont, baby lima beans, and a fine steak with just a rim of fat. He was especially proud of his own father, who progressed from rural Missouri through the halls of West Point and Harvard to achieve the rank of Brigadier General in the US Army. Norton shared his happiness and humor generously with family and friends old and new, including most recently the caring staff at Baystate Medical Center and Kindred Parkview Hospital. He was a remarkable man, husband, father, companion, friend and citizen. A memorial gathering of friends and family will be at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, July 7 at The Meeting House at Storrowton Village in West Springfield. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider enrolling in the Anatomical Gift Program at UMASS (find out more by calling 1-508-856-2460).
