His daughter had a lot to do with him choosing a non traditional course of treatment for a problem that had a low risk associated with traditional treatments apparently.

He was a helluva guy, and if you ever met him or saw him speak to a captive audience, you know EXACTLY what I mean LOL

I was walking thru a quiet SF car show a number of years ago at the Cow Palace (a legendary venue) on a Sunday real early after it opened so few people were there. I saw Norm looking at a car and I walked up and just started chatting with him about the car like we were buddies. He sure treated me exactly like that, he was very approachable and goes down as one of the good guys in my book.

RIP Norm, RIP, thanks for what you did for us and as I always say, "Thank God for the Artist, what beauty they add to the world".

I met Norm way back when he built the Henway. Very creative, friendly personality. He will be missed. Rest in Peace Norm..
