Norm was definitely an inspiration to many hams, both newly licensed and seasoned operators alike.

He eagerly shared his love, enthusiasm and knowledge of the hobby with others.

Norm had been a staple on the airwaves and his absence will be felt by many.

I think I only met Norm in person once or twice, as I NEVER show up at club meetings (only a member to help support the repeaters) . That said, I had a few nice conversations with him on the local repeater. He will be missed

Norman was a pillar of amateur radio. His loss has left a big void to all who knew him. His traning of so many hams over the last twenty years makes his contribution to amateur radio the true meaning of "Elmer". He will be missed by all. Rick, K2RB

Thanks to Norms help, in 1994 I took his cw class at Huntington High School. As a result I upgraded to Tech Plus and then 11 months later to General class. In June of 1994 I had been living in an apartment and Norm came over and helped me build a folded dipole which we hung around the walls in my apartment. He then showed me how to tune the rig up. For those 11 months I just did cw. I would always talk to Norm on the LIMARC repeater. He will be missed by myself and many other hams. Norm rest in peace in that great ham shack in heave.

Matt, N2RBP

Norm will be sorely missed. My wife (Marie KC2EEA)and I originally took the Tech class given by LIMARC and later the code class George N2GA and Norm gave at Huntington High. Besides being excellent teachers, the banter that went back and forth between Norm and George was delightful. Norm was not one to laud his impressive credentials over you. His enthusiasm for amateur radio was infectious. He really loved it. God speed, Norm.

Norman was a class act. I took his class, and the banter between him and George would make my day. They even managed to get me to pass the code test. He will be missed.

Norm was one of the smartest people I have known in my Ham career which spans 30+ years. Although I did not speak to Norm as much as I wanted too I made it a point to listen to him on the LIMARC 146.85 when ever I was in range. His enthusiasm for amateur radio was contagious. I worked him (CW) many times during his famous QRP expeditions to a mountain somewhere in upstate NY. I don't remember the location but do remember his excitement before and after his QRP-CW weekends. Rest in peace Norm you will be missed !
