Norm was born in RM of La Broquerie and attended the Oswald school. He was raised on the family dairy farm. In his early years he was a 1st class pressure welder in Calgary, AB. He worked there for 5 years at which time Norman came back to Friedensfeld to take over the family dairy farm. Looking back, he wouldn’t have changed a thing. Norm loved farming.
Norman and June loved to square and round dance. He loved to play the guitar. He enjoyed the outdoors, snowmobiling, fishing and hunting. He also enjoyed traveling and spending time with his many friends and family. Norman was a most patient, kind and caring man. Everything he did in life was for his family. He will be greatly missed.
“ I have fought the good fight to the end; I have run the race to the finish; I have kept the faith; Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the upright judge, will give to me on that Day. And not only to me but to all those who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
A private interment of ashes will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the St. John’s Lutheran Cemetery, R.M. of Hanover, MB.
