Will never forget working with him. He always smiled more than most. Liked to pick on me at any given opportunity which normally gave me a much needed laugh. Even after I left that store and he would see me, he would always make sure to say hi and ask me how I was doing. Good person. Good coworker. We'll see you again soon.

Norman was a kind, gentle man. His smile will be missed. His kind words of encouragement were always heart felt.

No words can give a description of Norman’s love of life and the compassion he showed to others. His greatest joy is his family. He showed me pictures of his children and grandchildren beaming with pride in doing so. A commitment to his wife was obvious as they worked and shared lunch together when they could. I’m so so so saddened to have lost such a special co-worker and a beautiful friend. May you Rest In Peace, Norman until we all meet again someday. “T” Walmart Associate.
