How you savored life. Hard working, Genuine, Loyal, Honest, without malice. Words cannot describe how I feel at your passing. We just talked about your trip to Texas, getting a deer, babysitting, how proud you felt about your family. I will miss our conversations. "The good die young" again proven in this life. You knew the truth & I will see you again someday my brother. It was & always will be an honor to call you "my friend". My heartfelt condolences to your family for their loss.
Early in my Cleveland Metroparks employment at some Park activity which I cannot recall, but what I do is hearing my name in greeting. It was Norm from my high school days some 30 years past. My I hear my name being called again someday. It was always always good to see Norm.
Great Father in law. Exeptional friend. I will always have you in my heart. He showed me kindness , good will and love wen others didn't. I'll will never forget you Norm. My sincere condolences to Tashaunda and here family members. May God ese the pain they have to be enduring in this moment of lost.
Ps God!!!! What a good man. And I will never be able to see him because gone. This one truly hurt??
I just received a Christmas card with Norm’s handwritten note two days before I heard the news- it is hanging on my refrigerator. I’m so sorry we didn’t make it out for that Big Boy sandwich in time, but I will forever remember all the times we shared them, all the conversations we had, your sense of humor, and what a honest, good person you have been. God Bless you, Norm, and if all goes well, I’ll be seeing you again someday. Prayers to your daughter and the entire family.
I grew up as an older brother to Norm. We hunted, shot and always talked about his family. I was expecting him to come visit, We’ll have to wait for that. God took him too early, he had so much to still give. Anyone that he touched will be forever grateful. I’m still in shock, but at least now he can see his mother in a better place! God bless Tashaunda, her husband and the kids. I will never forget Norm, he had a lot of influence on my life. RiP brother
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Mr. Norman, I will remind Jacob of you our memories that we had with you. We love you like family Jacob loved seeing you always happy to see you. I watched how you joked with Jacob and it was cute playing big foot while Jacob chased you and tried to find you and you trying to find him. Thank you Mr. Norman for the nice thing's your said and done for anyone.
I always enjoyed talking with Norm. He was such a genuine human being. May he be at peace in our Lord.
very very sad of the passing of a GREAT friend. i knew norm 42 years, in the county pistol league, and dozens and dozens trips to the shooting range. and hundreds of great phone conversations .be fore i heard the news i was waiting for his call.he loved his family so much , the lord made sure he seen them at the holidays.his passing is a void in my life that will not be replaced. he would tell us not to mourn him but be happy hes with his mom and dad in paradise. so so sad ronald laboda
I love you. I will miss you.I am sad we can not hunt, fish and play games.
We were all blessed to have Norm in our lives. Always smiling, always cheerful, he’d do anything for his friends and co-workers. And always such a hard worker. He loved Cleveland Metroparks and every living thing in it. We’ll miss you, Norm.
Was a great guy. He will be missed. He was always willing to help and made you laugh.
Norm was more than a co-worker, he was a good friend. His stories always made you smile. His love for his family, his mother, his church and the Metroparks was never-ending. He would give the shirt off his back but never ask for anything in return. His selflessness and dedication to caring for his mother goes without saying. I will miss our time at the shooting ranges and the "FIN". Happy Hunting in Heaven my friend. I promise I will celebrate your birthday at Harry's. Until we meet again. Love, Toni
I worked with Norm and was heartbroken to hear. May his family know what a great person he truly was and my most sincere condolences. Rest In Peace.
So sorry to hear of Norm’s passing! He was such a friendly, hard working Cleveland Metroparks co-worker! Whenever I saw Norm he was always so pleasant and cheery! He will be missed by all of us who had the pleasure of working with him!
Norm was a chatter, but that was one of the things that made him endearing and I enjoyed our conversations. He was also so helpful; the type to give you his shirt off his back. I only really had the opportunity to work with him the last two years, but it was a pleasure and I am going to miss him. Sending prayers to his family for healing.
Norm was a beautiful soul and and a warm heart I will miss you my friend you will always have a special place in my heart. Now God has someone to take care of heavens garden
It was a pleasure getting to know Norm through work. He always had a smile and good attitude! Will be greatly missed you so many.
T, Ken and I are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always.
I’m so sorry to hear of Norm’s passing. Norm was always a dedicated member of the Cleveland Metroparks family. He could always be counted on to lend a hand wherever needed. May God’s peace comfort you all during this sad time.
“All to myself I hold and know
All of the days of long ago---
Wonderful days when you and I
Owned all the sunshine in the sky,
The days come back as old days will,
And I keep them still,
All to myself.” W.D.Nesbit
God love you and keep you Norm.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
