Not sure what to say?

My husband and I knew Norby through the Transplant Support Group of WNY. Norby was such a wonderful giving man who always had a smile. My husband Mike passed away last year. They will both be missed dearly! My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Jim and Val, Sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear of Norby's passing. We roomed next to Norby last year while fishing Barcelona and, by coincidence, again this past month. Such a pleasant gent.. wish I'd gotten to know him better. My sympathies to his family and friends.

I wish to offer my sincerest sympathy to Norby's family. Norby and Jack Brocious helped me build my home in Eden in 1970. My sons and I have many fond memories of that. I also grew up in Lackawanna on Franklin Street, so we were neighbors before our building relationship.

Norby will be remembered for his warm heart, ever-present smile and generous gift of time to help create the next generation of Great Lakes anglers. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and angling friends during this time of great sorrow.

My deepest sympathies go to Narby's family and friends... He was a tremendous individual, and one of the remaining old-time fishermen, who worked hard to pass along the love of the great outdoors to so many. He will truly be missed... May the waters be calm, the fish hungry and the lines wet and tight, always.... Rich Davenport

We will always remember Uncle Norby for his positive attitude, infectious smile and boundless Antonik energy. Our deepest sympathies for my cousins and their families at this time.

On deepest sympathy to the entire extended Antonik family.
We will miss Uncle Norby and his zest for life.

Norby was like the father I never had. He was so kind and generous to me. He always had a smile and loved to be at my husband's "Teach Me To Fish" seminars, which was for the kids. We always laughed and was always willing to give me a hug. When he would fish in Barcelona or Dunkirk on weekends, with my husband and the boys, Saturday was our day. I would pick him up, we went for lunch, and of course, we couldn't miss church. It was our special time, a time that I will treasure...
