Norman worked road construction with heavy equipment, and he was an underground coal miner. He was a member and deacon at Toler Baptist Church in Wyoming County until he moved to Madison. Norman had a love for the outdoors. He enjoyed gardening, cutting grass, working in flowerbeds, and building birdhouses and squirrel feeders so he could feed them all. He enjoyed cooking, watching westerns, and the news, but his greatest love was for his family. He loved spending time with them all. He was proud of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He loved each and every one of them and treasured every moment he had with them. He will be greatly missed by everyone that loved him. He leaves behind his tremendous love that has touched all of us, along with many wonderful memories which will live on for generations to come.
