Norman William Smith

Went to his last rest peacefully on July 7, 2003. Born August 1, 1918 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Survived by his loving wife of 57 years, May (Midge); son, Stanley (Karen); daughters, Gwen, Maribeth and Dawn (Chris) and sister Marjorie; nieces, Barbara (Lorne) and Joan (Ken); numerous nephews, 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. In his last years he learned to live with pain and disability but many will remember his years of dedicated community service including 19 years as volunteer fire chief for the Crescent Beach/Ocean Park Fire Department. He was also a charter member of the White Rock Kiwanis Club and a member of Crescent United Church. Norm will be remembered as a spell-binding story and joke-teller, talented and knowledgeable horticulturist and caring husband, father and son. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation in appreciation of the excellent care Norm received.
