I remember norm coming over to play cards with my parents and with out missing a beat I would greet him at the door with a hug and norm would always bring me a big bag of tootsie rolls :) he's was always there even when I had a surgery when I was younger he came to check on me once again with a big bag of candy lol if I ever needed him he was always there! I'll definitely miss you and love you norm

Norm and I were very good friends. I knew him for 66 years and he was an extremely good friend. He could always make you laugh and enjoyed telling jokes. He and I worked together at USDA for a few years before I transferred to Denver to work for DOD. I stayed in touch and we enjoyed a lifetime relationship. One of the best friends I ever had and truly was like a brother. We had some very funny times in our younger life. My sincerest sympathies and condolences go to his family and he will be sincerely missed. RIP, Norm.
