It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, Norm Syrett.
Norm is survived by his daughter, Heather (Michael) Batchelor, his grandchildren Tanya (Rob) Bijl, Chelsey (Kellen) White and Jenny (Rob) Gauthier. He also leaves his seven great grandchildren, Austin, Rachel, Nolan, Ryan, Jocelyn, Emily and Riley.
Norm was predeceased by his wife, Muriel in June 2008, and their daughter, Sharon in January 1972.
Norm was born in Toronto, Ontario. He enjoyed fishing as a boy with his Dad and delivering hundreds of papers downtown Toronto. Later, he worked in a government office and met his future wife Muriel, while singing in the church choir at Waverly Road Baptist Church. They were married June 23, 1953. Sharon was born August 12, 1956 and Heather was adopted 6 years later into the family at 6 months of age. The family moved to Kamloops in 1966 where Norm worked in security at the Navy Depot and later as a BSW at Tranquille until his retirement in 1988.
Norm greatly enjoyed fishing, walking, biking, and playing tennis. He was a quiet man who enjoyed people one or two at a time. He was always appreciative when someone helped him or gave him words of encouragement.
A huge thank you to the staff at Pinegrove Care Centre. You were like Dad' second family. Special thanks to Trish, Angie, Paul, Anne, and John. Thanks to you and the rest of the staff who took such good care of Dad in his later years and a big support to our family.
There will be no funeral by request. Instead, there will be a Graveside Service at Hillside Cemetery for the family this Saturday, September 15th, 2012. Pastor Al Hern will officiate.
