    This was such sad news. On opening night of St Robert’s Golf League, several of us talked about the great veterans in our league. His was at the top. Norb has always been a kind and very inviting person and friend. He will be greatly missed in league but more importantly in Church. He was a very special individual who will be remembered often. Rest in Peace Norb

    Marcella and family, sorry to hear about Norb’s passing. I will always remember you Marcella and your husband. You both are great and kind people. It’s been a few years since my time at SGH, working for you in accounting. Take care.
