Norman was the go-to person for all drawings and rentals of the Stag Club for several years. In addition, for over 25 years he and his late wife, Alice, prepared many meals served for drawings and other functions.
Norman was known as “Pap” or “little Norman” to many. An avid hunter, if you ever wanted to hear a good hunting story, just ask Pap. You couldn’t get a smile out of him very often, but he sure liked being a jokester. His best friend, John Long, of Fannettsburg often loved to sit and talk about old times and old hunting stories. He could tell you anything you would want to know about guns or knives.
A Graveside Service will be Tues., Sept. 14, 2021 at 11 a.m. in Fannettsburg Reformed Church Cemetery, 11347 Path Valley Road, Fannettsburg, with Pastor Butch Neil officiating, followed by Military Honors.
