So sorry to hear of Norm's passing. He was an incredible role model for many of us kids back in the late 60's, New Auburn has lost an iconic figure whom will be missed. Besides many family gatherings, my favorite Norm memory ls Norm and I lowering and folding the American flag in the traffic island between Lou's variety and the family business Gino's pizza.
As a new boy scout I was honored and privileged to help Norm with this patriotic duty.
God bless you Norm, may you rest in peace. Keep an eye on us!

Jeff, your father was a wonderful man. I remember all the times I’d be over at your house growing up, and whenever he got home from work, he’d still have a smile on his face when he saw all of us. My deepest condolences to you, Mary Jane, and the entire family.
