Norman spent his early years in and around Fiske, Saskatchewan and then moved north to the Turtle Lake area where he met and married Jeanne Racicot in October of 1938. Norm and Jeanne and their family moved around Canada, taking them wherever there was work in Norm’s field of employment (welding and auto body repair). They spent time in Ontario, Alberta, and finally settling in B.C., first in the lower mainland and then in 100 Mile House. Norm moved back to the lower mainland in the early 70’s and settled in until his move to Kamloops in April of 2004.
