Norman taught me to play basketball in the seventh grade. We were both tall and clumsey and had an understanding of the "problems" it caused us both. He helped me learn to cope and aided me in coming through a difficult adolescent time. He was gentle. He had talent for music and people. Many thought we were an item (boyfriend and girlfriend) but that was never so. He was simply my friend. I often think fondley of him.

We were patrol boys at Southside Grammar and I used to go over to his house to play a lot.

I was bassist in Norman's band 'The Agents' during early HS. I remember Sat rehearsals at his parents and his large station wagon plus his very nice Gibson.
We knew his health was bad and were thankful for the times we all spent together.

Norman turned me in to mr. gray at southside grammer for bringing a pea gun to school--you would have thought i had an AK47--thought i was going to jail--still laugh about that

I remember walking to Norman's house from Southside Grammer...tossing acorns on the way. His mom would always have a snack for us. Because of his health condition, she would always be doting over him, concerned about what he was doing...but, Norman would basically ignore her, because he just wanted to be a regular kid like you and me. He would argue, joke and act just like a normal kid. He was as strong as a bull and as clumsy as an ox in whatever we played. Even though he had a strong will, I'll always remember his soft side and how he cared about his friends.

Appreciated what David had to say, I always like Norman, friendly and helpful fellow. Never knew he had health issues and was shocked when I heard he passed, was one of the first of our class that I knew to die of "natural causes".
I see that tall, lumbering smiling guy to this day in my memory----miss you Norman!

I also remember Norman and George Lipp in their patrol uniforms at Southside Grammer...I think I posted one of George in a class picture.  Those patrol guys were always helping everyone across the street in front of Southside Grammer and then way down on San Marco...they were our saviors!!!!  I am so sorry that Norman passed...I also didn't know that he was ill.
