Norm worked at Pebblewood C.C. over 10 years mowing fairways, roughs, sand traps & taking care of the flower beds.
Many times when a storm was coming in, I had to go get him off the course when everyone else was in the shop.
I nick named him "Storming Norman"
He was always smiling, never complained and never missed a day of work.
Norm and "Ween" his wife were my friends and I will greatly miss them.

Though I did not know him personally, I knew his son, Bill very well during my years at Gast. He was a great mentor and friend to a young man he trained and guided as a new Machine Shop Inspector. So even though I never ment him personally, working with Bill tells me what kind of a man he must have been. My prayers and condolences to his entire family. I'm sure he will be missed.
