His greatest treasures were his wife Patricia, his seven children, 21 grandchildren, and 18 great grandchildren. Norm passed away in November of 2010, but he will be lovingly remembered as an astonishing athlete and the Master Gardener of his community’s and family’s soul. Norm was truly one of the finest athletes of the Skagit Valley.”
