    Very sorry to learn of Norm’s passing. He was a great Corn Hill neighbor and I always enjoyed seeing him in his garden or on his porch. My deepest sympathies.

    Norm always made me feel welcome, and I enjoyed his company when we visited. His home was a warm place and one where you could count on good food and sports talk. The care given him by his family during his illness is a testament to the love he engendered. We will all miss Norm.

    I am so sorry to hear of Norm’s passing. My heart goes out to his children, his family and his friends.
    Norm was a fifth grade teacher at The Village Elementary School, in Hilton, when I first started teaching. He taught with Dick Suhr, MaryLou Maynard, and Janet Smith. They were a great team, always laughing and joking with each other.
    I will always remember Norm as being kind and supportive of his students, his colleagues and his friends.
    I hope you find comfort in knowing that he will be remembered fondly.

    Always a good friend and a good neighbor. Great discussions about baseball, softball and vegetable gardening. Our prayers of support for the family.

    We lived a few houses down from him when the family lived in Walker. Our 3 girls played with their 3 kids, and we had lots of fun, and always enjoyed our visits.

    Missing you, Dad. Your birthday came and went this past week, and I wish you were still with us to celebrate…it was always a fun day! Stopped by the house, but it’s not the same without you…love to you always, and not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. I actually had a dream this week with you in it, and you were laughing up a storm over something! 💗💗💗. Great dream! All is well.
