I have such fond memories of Norm. He was always such fun during our many years at school. He had his struggles but a good man was still there. Condolences to his family.

Kim, Karen, Kyle and families,

We were so lucky to be such good friends with Norman for so many years. He and Joe loved to heckle each other. (And yes every Trivial Pursuit game we played with Norman and Judy was won by Norman!) We will really miss you Norman. To all of Norman's family, you are always in our hearts.

I was sad to hear of the loss of Norm. We go back a long ways, high school, Alfred State, and hanging out in Gorham. He was a good friend to all and always ready to help.
