Norman Douglas Heaslip

Norman Douglas Heaslip March 3, 1923 - November 12, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Norman Douglas Heaslip on Monday, November 12, 2012 at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock at age 89. Norm is predeceased by his brother Don, his wife Gail and their daughter Dianne (Ric Heyman). Norm's younger brother Alf survived him by two days. He is lovingly remembered by his sons Doug (Penny and daughter Susan), Robert (with his children Peter and Jasmine and great granddaughter Afia) and daughter Wendy (Dick Kuchar).

Norm was born in Victoria BC. At age 16 he worked on a freighter travelling through the Panama Canal. He then joined the RCAF in WWII and served with pride. Norm later earned a degree in chemical engineering at U.B.C in 1951. Norm then worked for CIL in the explosives division in Victoria, Montreal, Scarborough, and Calgary. In 1972 he moved to Vancouver to work for the WCB until he retired.

Norman found happiness again in 1997 when he married Shirley, and her loving family. He will be fondly remembered by daughters Lori (Eric Burr and daughters Amanda and Ashley), Lynda (Darrell Campbell and sons Michael and Daniel).

Norm was known for his generous spirit and humour and will be deeply missed, but know that he is always with us in our hearts as he watches over us.

In accordance with Norm's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Peace Arch Hospital, 15521 Russell Ave, White Rock, BC V4B 2R4
