Over the years Norm took pleasure in a number of activities keeping his body and mind young at heart. He especially loved camping, whether it was with friends or family, he was always looking forward to packing up his fifth wheel and setting out for a weekend of adventure, camping, fishing and good times. Norm also enjoyed the music scene. He often would attend music jams in neighbouring communities. He was a skilled dancer and loved going to dances at different locations throughout the city. Norm had also became actively involved in aquasize. He loved both the energy and relaxation it provided. A few times each week Norm enjoyed socializing with his neighbours while playing Bingo or sharing a glass of wine.
