So Sorry to hear of Norman's passing. We have so many great memories of times with Norman and the impact he make with the youth in Danbury Ct. and the community. Being apart of his Drama group, putting on different plays and skits in the community with Austin Spruill, Larry Spruill, Larry Moore. Betty Ann Miller, Beverly,Lannie Barnes, and myself, just to name a few of my team members as part of the Harambee Group. Great times, great memories!

I first met Norman over 40 years ago when i was young an new in the theatre business. He became a good friend very easily. Such a kind heart and talented in many ways. He fused his talents,spirituality and sensibilities into one that Such a man will always be missed in each one of those ways. Rest on Norman,a job well done. Rest on.
