Earl Ross Norman was born on March 8, 1951, at Moose Jaw, Sask., and passed away November 10, 2010, at Grand Forks, B.C.
He is lovingly survived by his mother, Mabel; his daughter, Shauna; sons, Derek and Renn; grandchildren, Damen and Dakota; and brothers, Doug, John and Gordon; his best friend, “Buck”; daughter-in-law, Rhea; sisters-in-law, Brenda and Glenda; nephews, nieces, cousins and many close friends.
Earl was rich in a way that money could not buy. Family, friends and his best friend, his dog, were more important to him than any object or currency.
He was a hunter, farmer and in later years, a traveler. He started life’s journey in small town Saskatchewan and ended it in small town B.C. A trail of good friends and great memories were made along the way – these were his legacy.
Hard work was a way of life for Earl, always able to do what had to be done. He also knew that sometimes you just have to live life, have fun and enjoy the company of friends and family and showed us that sometimes the greatest joy was in indulging others.
He will be missed greatly by all who knew him, even if it was only a chance meeting. He will be forever in our thoughts and when he is, I hope it puts a smile on your face.
A small gathering at Earl’s house was held on Tuesday, November 16, 2010. Arrangements entrusted to Grand Forks Funeral Home.
