Obituary of Cameron Jeffrey Norman

Jeff’s family are heartbroken to announce his passing on Saturday, January 4, 2020 after a very brief illness. Born May 25, 1957 in Bridgewater, to Kay (Parsons) and Lloyd Norman. Jeff lived at various times in Liverpool, Fredericton, North Sydney, Halifax, Truro, Kentville, and Windsor. He eventually settled and raised his family in Barrington, but always considered Windsor home, eventually retiring there in 2011. After graduating from Acadia University with his Bachelor of Education, Jeff began his 29 year teaching career. He started in the Core French Program in Berwick and then helped start the Elementary French Program in Shelburne County. After 10 years, he transitioned into a regular classroom. Jeff also taught in the High School Driver’s Education program, helping many students earn their license. Jeff cared deeply for all his students and kept in touch with many of them over the years. Jeff enjoyed spending summers at his beloved cottage in Cheverie, where many fond memories were made with family and friends. Many of Jeff’s culinary creations are as infamous and renowned as his prolific story telling ability. His “Normisms” will surely be missed. He had a keen interest in motorsports and all things automotive. He was passionate about his vehicles and loved to share his enjoyment of them with others. He had a keen interest in fine watches and could usually be found wearing two from his collection at any given time. Even in retirement, he took great joy in helping out two days a week at his grand-daughter’s school to help educate on the perils of bullying. He had endless compassion for people and animals, always ready to lend a hand or ear as necessary. Jeff is survived by Trina (Cuvilier), his loving wife of 38 years; sons, Kyle (Amanda Rehberg-Tousignan), Avondale and Tristan (Kendra Nickerson), Halifax; cherished grandchildren, Addison and Oliver; sister, Nancy (Greg) Morash, Avondale; as well many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family both near and far. He was predeceased by parents Kay and Lloyd Norman of Windsor; grandparents, Gladys and Arthur Parsons of Windsor and Hannah Belle and Augustus Norman of St. John’s, NL. The family would like to thank all the Doctors and Nurses that had a part in Jeff’s care, both in Halifax and Windsor; the family and friends that were by his side from day one, as well as all the people who have sent messages of encouragement and love. Arrangements have been entrusted to DeMont Family Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 419 Albert Street, Windsor (902-798-8317), where the family will receive visitors from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, January 9. A funeral service celebrating Jeff’s life will be held 2 p.m. Friday, January 10 in Windsor United Church, 613 King Street, Windsor, Rev. Dr. Shawn Redden officiating. A reception will immediately follow in the funeral home’s Elmcroft Reception Centre. Interment will be held at a later date.
