Norman passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones
on Monday, June 6, 2022, in his 85th year.
He will be dearly missed by Sharon, his wife of 6o years. He was the devoted and much-loved father of Nancy (John Stacey) and Ron (Fiona Martin), and proud grandpa of Megan, Sydney, and Greg. He will also be sadly missed by his sister Mary (late Bob Rose).
A descendant from a long line of proud Canadians, Norman was deeply committed to the Chateauguay Valley and fiercely proud of his village of Howick. He was a man of action, strong willed, and unwavering when there was business to resolve.
Norman will be most remembered for his tremendous storytelling, his long speeches, his great sense of humour, his positive outlook on life, and his easy-going ability to make friends wherever he went. He will be truly missed.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the many kind friends, neighbours, and numerous caregivers who throughout Norman’s 50-year battle with Multiple Sclerosis, made his life just a little bit easier.
A celebration of life will be held on Friday, August 19, 2022 at 3:00 pm at his daughter’s residence in Allan’s Corners (2413 Chateauguay River Road).
Donations to the Women’s Auxiliary of the Barrie Memorial Hospital
in Ormstown, Quebec, would be greatly appreciated.
