We Remember

JAMES, Norman Valentine

September 13, 1934 — May 16, 2016

Norman was born September 13, 1934 in Saskatoon, SK. He passed away on May 16, 2016 in Westbank,  BC.  Left to cherish memories are: his wife, Bernice; four children, Sherry (Fred) Cross, Barbara James, Jeffrey James, and Joanne (Andy) Neumann; nine grandchildren, Carolyn (Ryan) Harrison, Lindsay (Oscar) Sanchez, Robert (Tina) Cross, Michael Gaboury, Matthew (Jessica) Gaboury, Jessica James, Evan James, Andrea Neumann, and, Reid Neumann (Jen Christenson); four great grandchildren, Kaylee and Parker Harrison, Marco Sanchez, and Oliver Gaboury; two cousins, Cecil (Helen) Hopko and Gordon Hopko and their families; as well as brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, and friends.

He was predeceased by his first wife Jeannine, his parents Mary James and Dr. Norman Valentine James Sr., and his aunt Doris Hopko. Norm was a man who took his responsibilities seriously.  He was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.  Both long time and new friends were much appreciated.  As a thirty year veteran of the Edmonton Police Service, he never stopped being a proud part of that fraternity.  In his leisure time he enjoyed music from folk to classical, as well as fishing, camping and travel.  His interest in subjects from nature shows to boxing to sci-fi to current affairs made Norm a repository of a wide and varied range of information!  Norm had a long and full life!

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at Glenwood Funeral Home, 52356 Range Road 232, Sherwood Park, Alberta.
