Norman

Arthur L. Norman Jr. (“Art,” “Dad,” “Grandpa,” “Great Grandpa”) was born in Seattle, Wash., to Arthur L. Norman Sr., and Veronica Josephine (Grieser) Norman.

In 1956, he married his beautiful bride Sylvia Janet (Gauntlett) Norman, from Bellevue, Wash., and they were happily married for 64.5 years.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother; sister Donna (Norman) Herman; and twin great grandbabies Gabriel and William Bowman.

He is survived by his wife Sylvia; sister Adelle (Norman) Petersen; children David Norman, Sharon (Norman) Carter, Renee (Norman) Kisch and Diane (Norman) Foster; 12 grandchildren; and 17 great grandchildren.

He was a devout Christian. He raised his family teaching them salvation through Jesus Christ and was an example of how Christ would have us live. He showed a selfless love for others as Christ teaches and was a great source of encouragement and wisdom for many. He was loved by all who knew him and would quite literally give the shirt off his back to anyone as needed. He was a man of integrity. He was strong physically, mentally and spiritually, even to the day he passed. As many have said, he was a lighthouse to a darkened world.

We love you Dad!
