He married Helen Niedermeier on August 30, 1947 in Waukesha, where they made their home and raised their children. He was the loving father of daughters Kathryn (Steve) Jacobs of New Berlin, Christine (Eugene) Skogg of Germantown, and son Roger of Waukesha. Norm was the proud grandfather of Karen (Brian) Peterson, David Jacobs, Peter (Liz) Skogg and Mark (Caileigh) Skogg, and great-grandfather of Savannah Peterson.

Norm enjoyed gardening, playing golf, various card games, and visiting with friends. He was a sports enthusiast and enjoyed watching the Brewers, Packers and Badgers.

Norm was our neighbor for years in Waukesha. I moved away for many years and moved back to the neighborhood and ended up exercising and walking on the track at the YWCA with Norm and his friends.. He was a great guy and we all enjoyed his sense of humor. I miss those times we had together. I send my sincere condolences to his family. You had a great father.
