No words can describe how much Norm will be missed. Norm had a way about him his smile, his gentle nature, a heart of gold or his laughter. Norm was loved by many. He cherished his precious Rita and cherished his family and friends,. Norm's greatest joy was making others happy. Norm loved his farming and tinkering in the fields or playing with his farm equipment. He loved woodworking and you could see it by the beautiful creations he made. Norm was quite the builder and handyman . There was nothing he couldn't do. He was a hard worker. I will miss him dearly he will always be in our hearts as a wonderful husband, friend and father. My condolences go out to his family. We will dearly miss him.
