Norman was an avid coin and stamp collector, loved bingo, and playing Scrabble. Norman and Bonnie spent their summers up at the cabin at Otter Lake with their daughter Tammy, son-in-law Don, and granddaughter Kyria. We went exploring on a lot of back roads looking for interesting things. In Norman's younger days he enjoyed riding horses along with Bonnie and Tammy.
