Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Norm and I had been friends for over 30 years. I met him while dating his stepson Mike. We had many laughs and many lunches together. Norm was a very special man to me. Like a father. He would take me fishing and for a drive to check how his fields were doing. He was so very proud of his fields. He had me take many photos of his amazing crop. When Norm moved to St. Anne I would go visit and now he was very proud of his small garden. He had a green thumb for growing things. Norm and I would sit, talk about life and have a drink. Always 1 apricot brandy drink. That was a given always. Today I will have a drink for you my dear friend. Apricot brandy it will be. I will miss you Norm. Till we meet again. Rest easy! 💗 - Posted by: Rachel Walford (Dear friend) on: Mar 15, 2022

  • I was very sorry to hear of Norman's passing. Our family traveled to the farm near Vita on many, many occasions and enjoyed the meeting place for many family members. In the 70's and after we helped Norman with many projects he needed done to help lessen his burden. We installed a TV tower, indoor plumbing, cattle waterer, and painted the barn with a bright red. I enjoyed the many years of deer hunting with Norm and his brothers, and brothers-in-law. I regret that my circumstances in the last 25 years were such that I was not able to continue the relationship. God bless you Norman. I will always remember. - Posted by: Douglas Mann (Ex brother in law) on: Jan 27, 2022

  • I first met Norm when he moved in beside me in Ste. Anne. Norm was a gentle soul and enjoyed a good laugh. Since he was alone most of the time, I would visit him for a chat or he would wander into my yard for a visit. He would fish in my backyard and poke around in the treeline making sure everything was prim and proper. If I close my eyes, I can still see the look pf amazement and glee on his face the day that I showed him how to catch the pesky gopher in the backyard with a fishing rod. I miss Norm and I still think of him often since he moved away. It all happened so suddenly. One day his was living next door, driving to the gym in his gold Pontiac Grand Prix (he loved that car) and then the next we were sitting at his dining room table and he was weeping. He was saddened by the sale of his house. Norm had an enormous heart and would do most anything to help somebody in need. I can still remember his old phone number (the last four digits were the year he was born) because Norm would often ask me to make phone calls for him. He would get anxious and confused sometimes when dealing with cable companies or other service outlets. Like the time he accidently put a little bit of diesel fuel in his beloved Pontiac by mistake. I had helped Norm talk to the dealership on the telephone and sorted out that little hiccup. The first few years after Norm moved away, I would often dial that old number in the hopes of getting to chat with my old friend again but I never got an answer. It would just ring and ring. I never saw Norm again after his move. I hope you had a good, prosperous and happy ending to your life, my friend. I miss you buddy. You're old elk rack is cherished greatly and still in the same place where you watched me hang it before you moved. Rest easy pal. You an I shall have a beer in heaven together before too long. - Posted by: Daniel DeGueldre (Friend and neighbor ) on: Jan 26, 2022

  • Uncle godfather - I had promised to see you in the New Year. But that was not to be. God sees you suffering and called you up to be with your parents and siblings where there is only peace. Uncle I had said that we would all sit at the same table one day. Till then every year on January 8th I will also celebrate your memory with a memory drink on my birthday. For ever your Godson Jerrad. - Posted by: Jerrad St Germain (Nephew) on: Jan 25, 2022

  • You are gone but not forgotten. I know you are with Mom & Dad and our siblings. You have been released from the imprisonment of Parkinson Disease. I wish that family and friends make a donation in your name for Parkinson Research. I still feel you never really left. But I know I will see you again. Love Always, your sister Alice. - Posted by: Alice St Germain (Sister Alice ) on: Jan 21, 2022

  • Sincere condolences to Norman’s brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. He will be fondly remembered. May he Rest In Peace. Michael and Eugenia Zushman - Posted by: Michael zushman (Cousin) on: Jan 15, 2022
