Our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers are sent to all of Norman's family. One of our most fond memories of Norman is his green thumb. Every year he would borrow our father's tractor and disc to prepare his garden for planting. He always had a lovely garden next to his home on Route 5 in Loveville. We would see Norman driving the dusty Massey Ferguson as he left our drive headed toward his home. A couple days later when he returned the farm equipment, what we saw was the sun bouncing off the old red tractor as it sparkled from the cleaning, waxing and paint touch-up Norman so caringly gave "Massey." If he borrowed anything, he returned it in much better condition than when he picked it up. The Loveville families we remember as we were growing up are "going back home" but are leaving a great legacy of a new generation who carry on the values of their fathers and mothers. We will always have fond memories of Norman and Mary Blanche. From: Ruth Joy Coombs and Betty Joy Thomas

I have lots of memories of Norman from our school years at Margaret Brent. He never missed a class reunion. He did love playing guitar in the band with Frankie Harris, Tucker Brown and Mitchel Higgs. They had their regular followers both young and old. As contractors the school bus business was another adventure we shared. To his family I am so sorry for your loss but I know Mary Blanche was waiting for him.
