Over the years Norman climbed the ranks becoming a Navel Engineering Officer, accumulating over 20 years of sea time while serving on 14 different ships from Gate Vessels to Aircraft Carriers as well as serving on two submarines while on Exchange with the Royal Navy in Portsmouth, England. Norm completed his military career in December 1989 with 37 years of loyal and dedicated service to his country, he then moved to the Public Service sector for 11 more years, working as a Quality Control Rep until 2001, when he decided it would be a good time to retire. Norm’s new hobby in retirement became his 1977 MG which he loved to work on, going on many “runs” with the Ottawa MG Club. During the past few years he became a snowbird vacationing in Florida during the winter months. Norm’s other interests and free time were spent boating on the Rideau, working in his garden and enjoying his family and grandchildren or just relaxing on the patio having a glass of wine or beer with his good buddy, Dave Moore. Norm will be greatly missed by his loving family and his many friends.
