We are so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed chatting with Norm when we visited our dad at Montello Heights. He and my dad (Fern Landry) also had some good conversations over the years.
With sincere sympathy,
Fern Landry and his daughters, Pat, Diane and Jeanie

My family would like to express our sincere sympathies to the Martel family.
Our father, Marcel Doyon, met Norm joining a coffee group in Lewiston. Dad always shared stories told when he returned from the gatherings. Of course, Norm’s name came up frequently. I had the pleasure of meeting Norm in the Fall of 2017, where he was part of a “welcoming team at Montello Heights”. His twinkling eyes, beautiful smile and infectious laugh was such a blessing for my father. Norm was one more angel hovering around our father. We were and still are grateful for his friendship.
Rest In Peace Norm.

I will certainly miss my brother, his smile, his humor. He died with dignity, after being surrounded by his loved ones, having had a very happy Christmas celebration. Normand, you left us with style, doing things your way. We know the Angels escorted you to your great reward.
Rest in peace, you will forever be in our hearts. Love Pat
