I grew up knowing Norman by being is the same cub scout pack with him. His mom was a den mother and we met at his house. They lived on Shelly and I lived on Masefield. My neighbor Tom Heiden, 67', lived in back of Norm's house. We often played if you would call it at Norm's. He had a younger brother, Don. I also knew his parents. Vernon Olson, one of our 65' classmates was is next door neighbor. 

Norm joined the Air Force in 67, went to Security Police school at Lackland AFB, Tx then was assigned to Eeielson AFB, AK. Before my Air Force basic training, Norm was on leave and he was telling me the do's and dont's and what to expect during basic. I may have visited him when he and I were home on leave at the same time. I then saw Norm again, just after our discharge. Norm joined about two months before I did. I remember him working for PG&E in Concord in 72' or 73'. That was the last time I saw Norm and he was recently married. He was a good friend to know.

Norm and I were very good friends. I lost contact  with he and Sandy when they lived in Alaska.  Starting around 2000, we took a long walk in the neighborhood at Christmas time I was visiting mom and he was visiting his mom. Then one Christmas Norm did not come. I was sad and didn't know why. Then my mother saw his obit in the newspaper.I was devastated. I got in touch with Sandy and she let me know that dear Norm had died of pancreatic cancer. He didn't want any of his friends to know. They celebrated the last few months of his life with many special dinners and special times. This was 4 or 5 years ago. I miss him and think of him often. He was a good friend. Norman Francisco Roberto Amadeo Orsi, rest in peace. Roz
