    Norm was an extremely accomplished optical talent. Having worked closely with him for twenty years, his demand for quality and attention to detail were applied to everything from his product development and production oversight to the proper frame fit on a model for a trade advertisement photo shoot. He was held in high esteem by all major vendors as very knowledgeable, ethical and most cordial. He was a Class Act and a privilege to have known. My condolences to Beverly and the family.

    Thanks for being a wonderful Grandfather to myself and all of my siblings for the past seven years. You helped to fill a void in our life that was empty for so long. We will all miss you so much. It’s never hard losing a loved one, but knowing that we have another fabulous guardian angel to watch over us helps the healing process. I love you Norm, and I’m going to miss you so much.

    Dear Scott, Mrs Radziwon and Family,

    I have many fond memories of your dad and husband when i would come over to hang out in your basement and listen to your brother’s record collection. He had an uncanny sense of humor and always made me feel welcome, even part of the family. I am sure he will be missed by all. I am sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.
