Norm and I played a number of tennis tournaments as doubles partners many years ago. I never had a better time than when playing with Norm. He brought a sense of sportsmanship and humor to the court. Sometimes after work at RRD I’d stop by to chat. We’d have a beer in his garage and tell stories and joke around. I’m going to miss this kind man. He was a class act, and I always enjoyed my time around him. I’m a better person for having known you, Norm.

Norm was such a huge part of our Arizona family and a rock to my Mom (Marilyn Berberick). He loved it out here in AZ. He was a sun worshipper. We will miss him greatly and he will always remain in our hearts. Thumbs up has a whole new meaning because of Norm. We loved that sweet sweet man!
