Born JANUARY 26, 1951

~GOD Takes The Good Ones TOO Early~

At the young age of only 65, Norm’s frustrating battle with asbestos related lung disease and subsequent cancer came to a peaceful end in our home on

Saturday February 6, 2016. Norm is survived by his loving partner Suzanne Doucet, son Kray (Christopher) of Calgary AB, sister Pat of Kelowna and niece Sandy (Cassandra) also of

Kelowna. Norm’s passing will leave an emptiness that will not soon be filled. Norm had many titles such as School Bus Driver Mr. Kenney, “Lord of the Manor and proprietor of Wanda’s Bar”, Mr. fix-it and a special title of “Unk” along with many others. Norm spent many years as a volunteer fire-fighter for the Westside Fire Department in Rose Valley as well as volunteering with the RCMP. Norm also had a lengthy affiliation with Stampede Wrestling and the Hart family. A celebration of Norm’s life will be held in the clubhouse at Magnolia Gardens 515 Houghton Rd on Feb 20/16 from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. Please come and have a Bud with Norm and be prepared to contribute a memory, an experience, a funny story or joke to the Norm’s Life scrapbook. A heartfelt note of gratitude goes out to the Palliative Home Care Nursing team whose care and assistance made it possible for Norm to pass in the comfort of his own home surrounded by friends and family. In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Palliative home care nursing team c/o KGH Foundation. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
