We didn't know Norman well, but enjoyed having meals and fellowship with him on Wednesday nights at Shandon Baptist Church. He was a very kind man. May he rest in peace. Prayers go out to his family and friends.

Norman was a wonderful man. He and I worked with the late Congressman Bryan Dorn and Congressman Dorn's wife Miss Millie. Norman was a smart and hardworking person who enjoyed politics and public service. He will be missed by many.

Norman and I have become friends over the last 2 years thru the St Joseph Bereavement Group as the 2 "old guys" with the rest of the ladies. We always struggled with the center step railing. We had to take it down and replace it after funerals. It is heavy but Norman was always up to the task. We talked about life over coffee a few times. He greatly missed his wife but was always upbeat about life and church. He is now reunited with her.

I will greatly miss his hand on my shoulder to say "hello" when he attended the Sunday morning 8:15 mass.
