I will miss Norbie's beautiful smile, his big heart, his love of music, and his passion for family and Chippewa traditions.
Sandy, Jeff, Linda, Robin, Lisa, and Craig, I hope that family ties will become even more important now as you grieve and hold on to each other for love and support. And always remember to keep that family laughter going in memory of Norbie! That laughter is truly a gift that your whole family has.
Praying for you as you mourn Norbie's passing and celebrate his life. May you be wrapped in God's love.

I remember meeting Norbie for the first time, It was in the AICCW offices. We sat next to each other and we talked or about an hour. He told me all about his family, his business and asked me a million questions. I was new to Wisconsin and didnt know many folks but after talking to Norb for a while I felt like I belonged at least a little more and had a friend. What I remember was his smile..

Sandy, we cannot tell you just how sorry we were to hear about Norbie. What can we say other than we will always remember the wonderful, fun and memorable times we all had together at Holiday Shores Campground.
I remember the first day we met you and Norbie when we were buying a car and boat from Norbie's sister Robin. Norbie welcomed us onto your deck by your camper, we had some beers and talked and also met up with
