At the close of summer he looked forward to the Lancaster Fair to watch the horse pulling competition. Norman inherited a love of music from his parents and is remembered for his enjoyment of country music and playing the harmonica. He was a member of the Moose Lodge and Veteran’s of Foreign Wars. Norman is remembered by neighbors and friends as a kind man with a bit of humor who loved to walk to town for morning coffee and visit his favorite restaurant, Grandma’s Kitchen for the news of the day.
