I knew Norm when I attended St Marys school. I enjoyed following his years at Green Bay. Ed M

I met Norm while vacationing at Torch Lake when I was a little girl. He organized flag football games for the kids and I loved my experience of having played with a pro. He was a kind and gentle man! When I had a reunion with him in 1991 he had that same magic and I again felt the same warm bond with him that I had in my childhood.

I worked for Norm Masters in his KFC franchise for 3 years. He was a great man and I loved his intellect. Norm would hold meetings about business strategy and relate business tactics to football. He was a great man and because of him, I became a Packer fan and have been one ever since.

By the way, my name is Frank Armstrong even though it shows as our business name of Melodyfarms Travel. I cherished the years working under Norm and I think he inspired everyone he came in contact with. A great man, he will be always missed in my heart.
