Norm & I came across each other twice in our lifetimes, probably about 8 years apart. But when our paths crossed again, we remained close up until now. He was always a great friend & someone you could rely on no matter what & I always did my best to help him in any way I could! We ahared a lot of great times together that will never be forgotten! Love you Norm! Hope there's a table 11 up there for you!

I am so blessed to have known Norm. When I think of him I will always think of the kind, gentle, helping soul that he was. He was a genuine guy; always there to lend a helping hand, hold a door open for a stranger, or give someone a ride if they didn't have a car. They don't make gentlemen like Norm anymore...You will be greatly missed my friend. May you rest in peace. Love you

I started playing pool back in 2000. It wasn't till about a year or two later when I met Norm. I was up at the bar area watching him shoot, oddly enough not on table 11, and make 3 bank shots like they were sitting ducks. A waitress told me to shoot pool against him. I was just a beginner and knew I couldn't shoot against him. A couple of weeks later I was introduced to him and he's been my best friend ever since. He helped me so much in improving my game but also teaching me about life. I can not begin to express my sorrow for the loss of our friend. My sincerest sympathies to his immediate family and his billiard family.

Norm and I are also cousins. Although we didn't get to see him much when he got older, we always held him dear in our hearts and always loved him. Rest in peace, Norm. We will always love you. Joan, Nick and family

Norm was Awesome. He has always been a great guy and I'll always remember him outside smoking a cigarette saying "Who Dat" LOL.. Table 11 will always be Norm's table. He was a Great pool player and he will never be forgotten. I'm sure that he's up there playing pool and making stuff from wood... Miss ya Norm... Love ya always.. RIP My friend..

I feel so lucky to have joined the family when I did so that I was able to meet Norm and spend time with him. I wish more than anything that he was still here so that we could continue to make memories however I will always cherish the times that we had. Norm, I could never have asked for a better father-in-law. You will always be a special part of my life and will never be forgotten. Your memories will live on through the children we hope to have and they will grow up knowing how wonderful you were. Rest in peace... love you so very much.
