His daughter Tamara and granddaughter Tori, both deceased. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. Norm led his life in a grand manner. In his early years he built airplane engines and put them in roadsters, which he raced at Bonneville, and set a new record. He then became interested in circle boat racing and for many years he raced all over the country, winning the national championship for the E racing runabout. We eventually settled in Murrieta Calif, population 280, in the 1970’s , he settled on a few horses, however, he turned to riding mules, which was his passion. Norm was a Korean War Veteran, has raced cars and boats, was a cowboy, and an innovator in making barn wood furniture, starting in the early 1980’s, and in 2003 we moved to Kanab. Kanab has been his love and he cherished his friendships deeply. We are grateful for the outreach and support we have received from those that loved him. Norm will be missed in many areas and especially by his family. It has been a 58 year extraordinary trail ride and those memories will live on and are cherished by all that knew him. Rest in peace Norm we all love you.
