He attended Bullard Havens Tech and served in the United States Army. Besides his family and friends, Norm’s greatest passion was the countless hours he spent on his Harley Davidson. He participated in many bike rallies, for fun, charity, and travel.

His talents amazed those around him, especially his ability to fix anything and his culinary adventures. He was an avid bow hunter and fisherman. His stories of fishing or hunting usually ended with how he got the big one or how the big one got away.
