My uncle Norman was a great man, and in my life I have met few that are as compassionate, caring, and humble as this man...a man of great wealth, great wealth that was unseen, and carried in his heart...his wealth was of the humble devotion in his soul to be good, to do good...Uncle Norman your legacy carries on in the hearts of those you've loved, those you've raised, those whose lives, through your compassion, that you have touched...though you will be missed by so many, you are where your life long devotion, as a servant to the Lord, has brought you, the eternal kingdom of god....may you rest in peace Uncle Norman, your work is done.

December 7, 2018, we lost my awesome father, Norm Goyette. He was a true man. A humble guy who worked hard and gave of himself. Always faithful and disciplined. A true man of God. Committed to honor, virtue and service. He was always faithful to my mom and the kids, grand kids and great grand kids. He loved us all in a deep way through words and actions, he never wavered, he was a rock. His attitude was that of a happy warrior, always fighting the good fight with optimism and cheer. When I was young, he formed me well, when I became a man, he became a true friend. I will miss him dearly. Well done good and faithful servant!
