Norman was proud to be a Korean War Veteran serving in the Lord Strathcona’s Horse Regiment . He was compassionate, brave, loving and strong in mind, body, and spirit . He loved the outdoors which included camping, hunting, golfing and fishing. He was a man of many talents, many of which were self taught. Norman and Shirley spent a total of 72 years together and genuinely loved spending all their time with one another. They were husband and wife but also best friends and they built a great life that they were proud of. Norman loved having family and friends around and he loved to laugh. Although a quiet man, he had a wicked sense of humour and was famous for coining the term “nip nip” as he loved his Alberta Premium while watching a great Western! He will be missed by so many!

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
