Norman and I were "Team Four" as ushers at First Church for many years. He was as accepting and welcoming a person as I've ever known. Even in the decades after other duties often took me away from First Church, Norman always greeted me with, "Team Four, how are you?".

He was a blessing on our community. Rest in Peace, Brother of Team Four!

To Norman's Family;
So sorry to hear of Norman's passing from Bladder Cancer. My Father had Bladder Cancer in 1969 and is now 93. I can fully understand and sympathize with what you all have been through assisting Norman. He was a real great guy; I graduated from Nashua High in 1967, and new Norman through my family, Ernest and Ethel Chalifoux from Hudson, who bowled with Norman on Friday nights in the Grange Bowling League on Canal Street in Nashua and ultimately used Norman for assisting us with preparation for their final rest. Please let all of the great, fond memories and family fun help you all through this difficult time. Norman is now at peace in heaven, smiling down.
