He is survived by his wife, Mary; daughters, Donna Kail and Carol Kail Baer; son-in-law, Nick Baer; grandson, Jeffrey Baer; granddaughter, Amy Baer McCabe; great granddaughter, Neva Baer; great grandson, Hunter McCabe and sister, Blanche Kail Vodenik.

Norm was born in Perry, Iowa and moved to Santa Monica, California as a young man where he went to work for Douglas Aircraft Company. His wife of 72 years, Mary, was also from Perry, Iowa and came out to California in 1941 to marry Norm. He worked for Douglas Aircraft (later McDonnell Douglas) until he retired in 1979. Norm loved to putter in the garage (there was nothing he couldn't fix), repair cars, garden, deep sea fish, road trips, visiting Las Vegas and spending time with family and friends. After he retired, he joined the Elks Lodge in Westchester where he remained an active member. He was a loyal friend and enjoyed many life-long friendships dating back to his childhood in Iowa. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
