Note*   Norm worked at a lot of occupations. He was an assayer, a miner and worked as a powder man in road construction.

Norm had been sick for over two years before he died. He had renal failure about 1996. He also had pulmonary fibrosis so was not a candidate for a transplant. He went on dialysis in December of 1999 and in March of 2000 was found to have leukemia. The dialysis worked well for him and the kidney failure in a way counteracted the leukemia so it didn't cause too many problems. Pulmonary fibrosis was the actual cause of death. He was healthy until the last week or so.

His first marriage to Helen Louise Destfino, 26 Apr 1952 was annulled on July 15, 1952. He then married Mabel Russell. Mabel was the aunt of Norm's third wife Larene. She lived in Toledo, Ohio and Norm and Mabel lived in the northwest. She had never met either of them until after Mabel died.

Mabel and Norm moved from Medford, OR to Fruitland, ID in 1976. They moved to take care of Mabel's sister. The day after they moved Mabel went to visit her sister and found her dead with a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head. Mabel died several hours later from a heart attack.

Larene first met Norm in 1977 when she had planned to visit her brother who lived in Southern California. Her parents had driven there and had their visit extended because her mother fell and broke her wrist. The original plan was for Larene to fly to L.A, spend some time with her brother's family and ride back with her parents. Her parents asked her instead to fly to Boise and met them there. After leaving southern California and visiting with friends and relatives in Northern California, her parents went to visit Norm in Fruitland, Idaho, which is a small town on the Idaho - Oregon border 50 miles west of Boise, Idaho.

She called Norm, whom she had never met, and told him of her parents plan and asked if he wouldn't mind if they could spend a few days with him. He was fine with the idea and Larene and Norm hit it off right away. Eight months later they were married and she moved to Idaho and lived in the house Norm and Mabel bought in 1976.

Norm was very wild as a youth and served in the Navy and later had a run in with the law. It is possible that Norm fathered a child during these years who is now grown but whose identiy shall remain hidden as the child is not aware of the situation.3
