Uncle Norman you were the most caring, hard working, family loving person I have ever met.

You were always there for me for anything I needed, never once asking for anything in return. Including the time when my car broke down in the Durham College Parking Lot or when our roof unexpectedly leaked. You were a phone call away. Often reminding me that you wanted to help.

You spoiled us rotten and shared with me often how proud you were of me our little family. This past Christmas you made Danica her own care package with all the junk food she loved. I’m still amazed that you knew to get Peace Tea! It’s the little things like this that meant to much.

Thank you for the countless times you bailed me out or lent a helping hand. I promise to do the same for your girl and her family. I pray that you watch over us all and keep protecting us as you always have.

My condolences to Uncle Norm, Aunt Joanne, cousins Joanne, Marianne, Dianne and Richard. You were all such a big part of my family growing up and my heart is heavy today hearing of your loss. As I recall our times, it seems like yesterday we were together in Keswick, Pickering or Guelph, with the warm summer sun shining down on us as we went about playing and laughing in our childish ways. The relations and their impressions remain with me today. There's always a fondness when I recall the family gatherings that brought soo many of us together in celebration or just family being family.

Norman always seemed quiet and composed, friendly and assertive. Reading the memories and condolences from his friends and fellow workers, and the generous spirit he shared with them, gives me pause to reflect on a good soul. People like Norman in the trades are so rare. His assistance to them will always remain in the minds and skills that will follow from his presence.

So long to my cousin Norman Edmund Doucett. Happy trails on your final journey. May you rest easy in the thoughts of all who remember you and the assistance you offered.
Peter M Aube.

What an enormous loss for so many people. A father, grandpa, son, brother, uncle, friend..always there to help any of us whenever we needed. His family was his world. He especially encouraged, supported, taught, laughed, loved and was so proud of his daughter and all of the kids in our family. A very heavy loss for us all. Rest peacefully Norm. Love you.
