    Hello Eleanor. I just heard of Norm's passing. We have never kept in touch over the years, but this news is disturbing and very sad to hear.
    Norm and I worked together at Rivtow on the tugs in Howe Sound for 3 years in the 1970's. We commuted together on the ferry for our week on shift at Gibsons and got to know each other very well. He was a great guy and always talked about his wife and girls. He was proud of his family. I'm sorry for your loss.

    So sorry to hear of Norm's passing. I sat every Super Saturday when I wasn't working. It just won't be the same. He was a wonderful man, I'll miss him dearly.

    Elly & family, our condolences. We sure enjoyed Thursday morning coffee with Norm. What great stories he had of his many years on the tugs.

    Elly, Julie & Debbie,
    So very sorry to hear about Norm. He was such a great guy. Always smiling and ready to talk and so very non judgemental. He will be missed a lot.
