Norbert's Tribute Wall

Tributes (2):

  • Uncle Norbert was definitely one of a kind, he was always willing to help, when asked, and seemed to love to help out others. He helped me out in a couple of instances with his knowledge of both small engines and woodworking. He will be missed.

  • One can only hope the fishing is great in Heaven! As a man that has so many friends and a family that loves you immensely, it’s very hard knowing we’ll have no more quiet chats or even time laughing at lunch. You were one of the few people in my life that I really enjoyed calling a dear friend.
    The many people that knew you had much respect for your way of living and the love you had for family. I had on!y known Norbert for less than a year, but in that year I came to consider Norbert as a close friend and respected him greatly. You are missed by so many, and I add my name to that long list. Rest in Peace, Norbert, (Hope you can find some fishing gear and teach St Peter what a real fisherman can do).
