Norm is survived by his son, Gary (Judy) Meyers of Cedar Falls; grandson, Greg (Bea) Meyers of Auburn‚ AL; three great-grandsons, Peyton, Hayden, and Taylan; two stepsisters, Geri Ott of Denver, and Mildred Ellingson of Rochester‚ MN; and many nieces and nephews in Iowa and Minnesota.

    We were privileged to be a part of Norm's world. Loving him was easy, and missing him

    comes naturally.  Joel's childhood memories of sharing parents with Gary will fill our home

    with laughter and stories until we all meet again. God bless the family as they celebrate

    a life well lived.
