May 17, 1924 - July 15, 2021
Carmichael, California - Dr. Norman Roy Eade passed away on July 15, 2021 at the age of 97. He was born in Snoqualmie Falls, Washington, a small logging town, on May 17, 1924, which gave him an appreciation for nature, family, community, and a strong work ethic, which he carried with him his entire life. He attended the University of Washington for his Pre-Med education, followed by medical school at Northwestern University in Chicago.
After graduating from Med School in 1950, he and nurse Dorothy "Dottie" Hart were married, and soon thereafter had their son, Alan Eade, followed by their two daughters Linda (Eade) Klaman and Janet (Eade) Nugent.
Norm and Dottie settled in Sacramento where Norm established his private practice. After 35 years, he retired from private practice and went on to provide medical treatment for medically indigent people. All in all, Dr. Eade spent 50 years in medical practice.
Norm had a thirst for knowledge, especially in the areas of religion, astronomy, philosophy, and the environment. He had a special affinity for ornithology. He loved having in-depth discussions on just about everything, including his fellow human.
Norm had an eternal love of the San Francisco 49ers, having attended more than 300 games at Candlestick Park.
Norm was preceded in death by his beloved wife Dottie of nearly 60 years. His family of 3 children, 4 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and companion, Peggy Smith, will miss him dearly.
