We Remember

REID, Norman

October 23, 1947 — October 9, 2023

It is with heavy hearts we share the passing of our husband, father, and grandfather Norman Louis Reid at the age of 75 on October 9, 2023. He was born in Dawson City, Yukon on October 23, 1947, to Norman and Bernice Reid. Norm grew up in Coquitlam, and worked at the Vancouver Golf Club. He played professional golf on the Canadian Tour, competing across Canada and the United States, where he met some of his closest friends.

In 1975, he met and married Leeann Kristensen, and together they had 2 children, Alexander and Barbara. The family moved to Kelowna in 1982 and built the house where they raised their family for over 35 years. Norm pursued a career in the trades, in industrial conveyor belting, an area he worked in until his retirement in 2013. He was known for his hard work and dedication. Fond memories of that time are gardening and landscaping, hosting gatherings of family and friends, canning pickles and salsa, hockey trips in the van, and playing in the yard with all the dogs, kids, and neighbours.

Norm’s love and passion for golf continued throughout his life, and he enjoyed playing at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club with his many friends until his passing.

Norm’s family will remember him as a loving and devoted spouse, parent, grandparent, and friend. In addition to his family, he is survived by his two children and four grandchildren: Evie, Madison, Hannah, and Emilia, and many other relatives and friends. Norm cherished his time with his family and grandchildren, and he will be deeply missed by everyone who loves him.
