I had the pleasure of working with Norm at Navistar for many years. Norm was such a great guy and made work fun on many days when the stress was high. To his family, you are in my thoughts while dealing with the loss of a true gentleman to all who knew him. Rest in Peace Norm. We'll see you on the other side.

One of my many favourite memories of Dad when he got the nickname 'Henry'. Dad and I were hanging pictures in my house in London. We were in the entrance way and he asked me for a nail. I know this doesn't sound significant but this wasn't the first area we were working in and he had picked up a few nails before we'd started. It also wasn't the first time he had asked for things I had seen him gather and put in his pocket earlier. So, I asked Dad what happened to the nails in his pocket. Turns out he had a hole in his pocket. I asked him why he didn't fix hole, to which he said he didn't have a needle or thread. Both of which I told him I could supply, but then he didn't have his glasses. I had a spare pair of glasses for him so that wasn't an issue either. The "I need but don't have - oh but I do" game went on for a bit and some how we ended back up with his hole in the pocket being the problem as to why he couldn't fix the hole in his pocket. After that "Henry" (from There's a Hole in My Bucket) just stuck and he became my Henry.

... Afterwards we found an array of the items he'd put in his pocket that had fallen out scattered around the house.

Hello, is this the same Norm Gagnier that worked at Navistar in Chatham? If so, he was one of the best people to work with there!

Michelle Gagnier Posted at 02:11pm

Hello Mary. Yes, that's my Dad. He worked at Navistar in Chatham for a good part of his life. Thank you! I can see Dad's response clearly to being told that - a shy but proud smile, happy to hear that he touched others positively.
