Not so long ago Norm emigrated from Scotland and met his bride Pat. Along came Andrew, Bobby and Lisa.
Norm set up shop for 41 years at Standard Tube where he built some lifelong friendships. He loved pranks and despised midnight shifts.
He was a kind, thoughtful man who loved to chat and was full of great stories. He ran marathons before it was cool and could seemingly find a running race anywhere he went.
He was a proud Scotsman and loved returning to visit parents Victor and Mary and his sister Moira and her family Chris, Sharon and John.
But he was also a proud Canadian and loved to watch and play all sorts of sport - soccer, golf, darts, hockey, and basketball. And he wouldn't miss a dance recital.
He was a caring Papa who loved watching his grandchildren at play. He had a remarkable love of animals - especially cats. And they loved him.
Norm will be reunited with Pat, who died in 1997 and his son Bobby who died 6 months ago.
He will be dearly missed by Lisa and her husband Ryan Bragg, Andrew and his partner Tiziana and grandchildren Kate, Elly and Henry, Ryan, Kael, Dax, Tiana, and Giuliana.
Lisa and Andrew invite you to join them in celebrating Norm's life Saturday, October 12 from 1-3 pm at Ody's Restaurant 580 Bruin Blvd, Woodstock.
In lieu of donations, please consider an act of kindness- take extra time to listen to a friend, visit your neighbour, or spend time with family - to honour Norm as that would truly put the sparkle in his eye.
