Norman Thomassen

June 29, 1930- December 17, 2017

Our beloved Norman passed away peacefully at Swedish Hospital surrounded in love by his family after a brief and sudden illness. Born and raised in Port Angeles, Washington. Graduated from Roosevelt H.S. and attended Western Washington University. Served in the US Air Force. Owned and operated Fleet Leasing Co. in Bellevue, WA until he retired at age 50. He loved his home on Lake Washington, the many adventures on his Crisscraft "The Fortuna", the Model T Ford he rebuilt from a pile of rust, and most of all his family and friends. He was a gentle and kind man who always was there to help anyone that needed a hand. He was a wonderful and devoted father, grandfather and Uncle.

Preceded in death by his beloved wife, Joelle; his parents Jens and Olga Thomassen and siblings Bjarne, Thelma and Tulla. He leaves behind daughter Cheryl Behrens (Bob); son Scott (Heidi); grandchildren Katie, Hailey, Sara and Aaron; sister-n-laws MaryLee Marshall and Pat Towle and many nieces and nephews.

He will be deeply and profoundly missed.

Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, January 21 at 3:00 at Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church with reception to follow at FloAnna's Diner.
