Hello Norma and Family I remember Norm as a true gentleman. Gentle and soft spoken. A man who prayed for and supported missionaries, including myself during my years in Chad. I know you will miss him deeply over the next few weeks, months, years. Always. My sincere condolences to you all. I am sorry I cannot attend the visitation or funeral but I will be thinking of you all, including Barb and Garnet during these days and pray God will comfort as only He can. Isla

I have some good memories from our team leading days to Rancho Siloe Mexico with Norm. He loved to tease me—and I actually survived it. The only thing I never forgave him for was eating MY toast—when I didn’t even know him!! But he was a very special man and has a very special place in my heart—always will! So glad God allowed our paths to cross!

Some of the “students” from Norm’s Rancho Siloe-Mexico days have asked me to extend their condolences to you Norma. They all remember Norm and how special he was. (Edith Hulcoop)

On behalf of the board of FRIENDS in Action USA, I would like to express our condolences to Norma and the family. We all loved Norm and thank the Lord for His vital part in the formation of the Canadian FRIENDs in Action Board. We loved working with him and appreciate so much all the people and work teams Norm helped to encourage into mission trips and projects. We praise the Lord he is home with the Lord and we look forward to joining him in the future. Thank you Norma for sharing him with us and thank you for being such an encouragement to us in FRIENDS in Action.

You have my sympathy. I am so sorry to hear of Norm's passing. He was a great humanitarian and ball enthusiast.

The world is a much greater place having had Norm in it!. When I think of him the song Oaklahoma always comes to mind. I truly believe his main goal in life was to leave people better than he had found them. He was one of the best story tellers and always had words so wise and rooted in his faith. He has influenced many over the years with his gentle kindness and thoughtfulness. To the always wonderful Troyer family my sincerest condolences. Much love to each of you today and in the moments to come. ~Cathy, Anson, Hailey and Connor ❤️
