He was born April 4, 1947, in Arlington, Wash., to Delmer and Velma Woinowsky. He grew up in Seattle and moved to Alaska in the early 1970s, working construction. Later, he joined Don Madsen, currently of D&M Rentals, and worked as a maintenance man from 1986 to 2007.
Norman enjoyed fishing, the "outdoors" lifestyle, and was a former member of the Moose and Eagle's Lodge. His latest memorable vacation was the Sturgis 2005 Rally with his brother-in-law, Michael, and his Harley.
