He worked proudly at Collins Radio for 37 years as a shipping supervisor. His hobbies included fishing every chance he could get, collecting chiming clocks, and small-engine repair. Norm was a member of the Model A club with his prized "Molly." He enjoyed wintering in Florida. Norm lent a helping hand to many neighbors over the years.
