I worked with Norm at IPS. I enjoyed him very much, especially his dry sense of humor. Marcia Allspach, Parkersburg.
So sorry for your loss. Was so happy to have them move across the street from us and growing up with our family. Such a sweet man.
What a wonderful man who welcomed me into his home like a son. Distance separated us through the years but anytime I returned to Allison and saw Norm, it was like I never left. Norm would talk and I would enjoy listening to him. I don’t think I realized until now why, but it was because he always had good or positive things to say. He truly loved life and people. I was so saddened when I heard his body had wore out and passed away. But that spirit of Norm., and the same about Minnie, lives on in all of us. Peace be with you my friend.
I have so many fond memories of Norm and Minnie when they operated the Allison Drug Store. Norm was such a good and kind man, and always had a smile for everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time. He will be missed by many.
