I had the privilege of working with Norm for eleven years at the Fremont Post Office. He was a very popular Letter Carrier and appreciated his input on the subject of the day. He was a honest man, he would do anything for anybody. When he retired it was a very tough job to replace him. My sincere sympathy to his family.

Our heartfelt condolences to you. Our family unanimously voted years ago that Norm was the very BEST mailman EVER! The postal service should require a training manual based on his friendly, personable, and cordial service! He always took a warm interest in our entire family, as well. Such a wonderful man will be missed!

Dear Doug, Bryan and Family,

My husband Don and I wish to extend our most sincere condolences on the loss of a cherished friend and in many ways an honorary member of our own family.

I have known Norm since I was a little girl writing letters to my Grandmother, Jean Conrad. I always included a few lines for Norm in those letters and he would pull up a chair in Grandma's kitchen with coffee and doughnut in hand while she read the letter aloud. Norm and Grandma had a special relationship and enjoyed playing practical jokes on one another. Grandma covered styrofoam in whipped cream simulating a fancy dessert and laughed while Norm tried to take a bite. She also pretended one year to throw an elaborate birthday party for her dog Clipper but the party was in reality one for Norm and his whole mail route, his friends, former commanding officer and others. Norm was the only one in the dark about the surprise until the last minute. He also waited hours at Eppley Airport for me to arrive to surprise Grandma on her 75th birthday keeping the secret which annoyed her greatly.

He has been a good and loyal friend as well to my Mom who moved back to Fremont in 1991 and I have always known that I could call him anytime and he would check on her if I was worried. As with many Fremont neighbors, Norm's beautiful woodworking skills are on display at Mom's house. He also refinished her hope chest the year I was married in 1994 and transported it to Colorado where we met Norm and Beth for dinner in Estes Park, one of their favorite places.

Norm will remain in my heart always. I sought his advice more than once in my life and always appreciated his Midwest, salt of the earth approach to the issues that we all face. He gave me that kind of advice when Grandma passed away in 1991 and I rely upon it today as I mourn his passing. It is made a bit easier by knowing he is again with Beth and all his loved ones who have gone before. He has more than earned his rest and though I can't be at his service on Monday I will be remembering him in my heart.

Bryan and Doug. Our condolences on the passing of your dad. He was a kind, caring and positive influence on each of us who had the privilege of knowing him while growing up. Great memories, in particular, of rides to/from baseball games in your suburban with Norm at the wheel. The house on 19th & Lincoln will always be, for me, the Turners' place!

Bryan and Doug, we are so sorry for the passing of your dad. Mr. T was one of a kind. He was a father figure to me, always in a good mood, cheerful. I will always cherish the good times over there, the fishing and hunting outings, basketball road trips with him, etc. Rest in Peace Mr. T.

I have a beautiful wooden quilt rack that my Mom had Norman make for me. It has travelled with me in many moves and is much treasured.

Uncle Norman, what a guy. My favorite Uncle. We spent some great times together over the years. Meeting in Colorado and taking long road trips, family gatherings at Christmas time and other holidays. Hearing all your Navy stories (over and over again), Spending most of your childhood over at my Dad and Mom's working on the farm with the Hansen Boys. Raising sheep when everyone else raised cows.
No one is going to miss you more than I do, I love you and hope to see you again down the road. Tell everyone Hi for me up there and don't fix everything before I get there to help.

What a wonderful man. I had the pleasure of helping Norm and Beth a couple years ago . He was the best husband to Beth, dedicated to her needs and wants. Norm was so talented as a woodworker and didn't let his age get in the way. Loved all his stories, something new all time . Now he and Beth are together again with no pain. May he RIP now. Our Deepest Sympathy to his family.
