Jay, I and Cameron and family are deeply saddened to hear of Norm's passing. Almost everyday he drove by on Ohio Ave. honking and waving with his "puppy" with him with his beautiful smile. Going to miss this almost daily drive by. Boss always looked forward to Norm driving by telling him hi Boss.

RIP Uncle Norm. I'm so glad I got to see you at my Mimi's funeral and catch up. We have lots of memories with you from the stories you told to the adventures at the farm in Black River. You will be missed. If my dad, Ed LaLonde, could be there he would and he will miss you very much. Prayers to all the family from us in Florida.

Norm was a fine man, a friend to all who knew him, and a highly respected person of renown in the neighborhood for many a year. He had a quick wit and a jovial personsality, was more than willing to lend a hand, and he never missed an opportunity to stop by and chew the fat. Norm was the epitome of a good neighbor and will be sorely missed in this neck of the woods.
