It is with great sadness, the family of Norman Leslie Tupper announces his passing on Tuesday March 31, 2020 at the age of 70 years.
Norm is remembered as a man of great strength, love, and determination. He overcame many challenges and obstacles through the years. His life was full of adventure and creativity, always seeking opportunity and providing for his family. He was known to welcome anyone into his home, providing comfort through a listening ear, cup of coffee, and a home-grown puff. He shared great wisdom with many friends and family through the years.
Norm was an Entrepreneur; maintenance, construction, mechanics, and “agriculture” were just a few of his pursuits… Norm loved to collect; he saw great value in salvage, finding various vintage treasures through his years… “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure” is a quote he would often say.
Norm was very proud of his family, the love he shared is undeniable. Married to Louise for 47 years, they raised 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren together. His days were filled with a joy for life, spending endless weekends and celebrations surrounded by his family, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He always had a squeeze, a smile and a sweet treat to share. “There was always love in Daddy’s Hands”.
He asked for so little, but gave so very much.
Norman is survived by his loving wife, Louise Tupper; daughter Theresa Tupper (granddaughter Cassandra Tupper; great- grandchildren, Ashlee, Jessica and Annabelle Tupper; grandsons Steven and Brandon Tupper); daughter Suzanne Luchak (Jason) (grandsons Curtis and Tyler Luchak); daughter Cindy Tupper (grandson Dorian Tupper-Ducholke); siblings Lynn Perlitz, Patti Buchanan, Donna Brown (Chuck), Bill Tupper (Peggy), Donna Houseworth (Lynn), Sandra Tupper, Linda Sowan, Eunice Sowan, Laura Kowalski, Denice Sowan, Kalam Sowan, Margaret Lepitch, Maggie Sowan, Sarah Jackson and Freida Forbes, as well as many Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and extended family.
Norman was predeceased by his Parents, Lloyd William Tupper, Elvira June Sowan and Leo Sowan as well as Grandparents.
A Silent Tear
Just Close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have for me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I’m really still there inside your mind
Don’t cry for me now I’m gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am no longer old.
I am in the place that’s filled with love
Known to you all as “up above”
