Norm was born on a farm in Layland, Manitoba. Norm developed his extremely strong work ethic while growing up on the farm. At the same time he developed his love for the outdoors, especially hunting and trapping. Norm left home at 15 years old to work in construction. He joined the army a couple years later and served with the Royal Horse Artillery during the Korean War. After the war he served with the Princess Patricia's Light Infantry.
After leaving the army, Norm held various jobs to make a living. He finally landed on a career in the heating and air conditioning trade. He also continued to trap to supplement his income.
He met his wife, Lorraine in 1965. They married in 1966.
Norm and Lorraine raised their five boys in the Maples, at the same time they operated a successful heating and air conditioning company.
Norm passed on his love for the outdoors and work ethic to his children and grandchildren. He was a great teacher and actively participated during their many hunting, trapping, camping and work adventures.
Norm will be greatly missed by his family and will be in their hearts and souls forever.
Norm's memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 19 at the Winnipeg Beach Royal Canadian Legion, 20 Hamilton Ave.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Condolences to the Andrushuk family. I have had the pleasure of working with Erin and Owen at a store in the city. I have met Lynn and Rob and Jim. I have heard so many interesting stories about their grandpa. How he has taught them so much about hunting and fishing and even the air conditioning business. There was great love and respect for their grandpa. They will miss him dearly. And not too long ago they lost an uncle (brother, son, brother-in-law and friend). Sometimes life seems so unfair but there are times when one's passing is a blessing. I am sending my thoughts and prayers and love to the family who are my friends. Time heals all. I know that well. Thinking of you. - Posted by: Barbara Tanner (Friend of family) on: Sep 15, 2019

My sincere condolences on your loss. I pray that memories of happier times will see you through your time of grief! "God gave us memory so we might enjoy roses in winter."

One of my memories of Norman. Had lots of visits with Norman and Lorraine. I didn't have far to walk to visit them when they lived in the city. Always had a great time with them. When I came to visit I would walk through the field. Short cut. Norman would never let me walk home after I came to visit. He didn't want me to walk in field in evening. Thank you Norman. May you rest in peace. You will never be forgotten Gloria and Paul Nagy - Posted by: Gloria Nagy (family friend) on: Sep 14, 2019
