Henry Omer Normandin, of Claremont, NH, passed away on December 7, 2019, at home with his daughter and son-in-law where he had lived for the last two years. Fondly known as “Hank”, “Dad”, “Grandpa” and “Pepe” to those that loved him most, Henry survived his wife, Lucille Theresa (Morin) Normandin, who passed away January 16, 2016. They are now joined in heaven, as they should be.
Henry was born in Manchester, NH, on November 14, 1929, the son of Armand M. “Pete” and Mary L. (Welch) Normandin and had resided in Claremont, NH, most of his life. He was a graduate of Stevens High School (Class of ’47) and was in the US Air Force from 1948 to 1950. His career included 38 years at Joy Manufacturing Company and Sullivan Machine Company, ending with the position of Production Control Manager, followed by three years at Power Ray Corp. as the General Manager, retiring in 1992.
Henry was an avid golfer throughout his life and once served as President of the Claremont Country Club. He was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church, a member of the Production & Inventory Control Society and a member of the American Legion Post #29. Hank also donated his time to senior citizens, helping them file income taxes.
Hank and Lucille were married on September 10, 1949 and had a wonderful marriage and fulfilling life together. Henry and Lucille have two sons, Michael D. Normandin of Charlestown (Wife Susan Landry Normandin) and Scott K. Normandin of Albany, OR (Wife, Susan Winter Normandin); and one daughter, Renee A. Bickford of Northfield, NH (Husband James Bickford); four grandchildren, Sasha M. Pardy of Queensbury, NY; Seth Normandin of Oroville, CA; Brittany Bickford of Tilton, NH, and James Bickford of Portland, OR; as well as three great grandchildren, Ella Pardy (14), Tucker Bickford (who shared a birthday with his Pepe, age 11), and Ethan Pardy (8). Hank had two brothers, George A. Normandin (deceased) and Alfred V. Normandin; a Sister, Lucille Abby (deceased); and one foster sister, Mrs. James (Irene) Tebo; all of Claremont, plus nieces, nephews and cousins.
Hank was much loved by his family, never hesitating to joke and get down and play with his grandkids as long as he could. He was a loving and caring husband that served as a model to all in his family. With a sense of humor that would rival any comedian, Hank could make anyone smile at any time. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. Mary’s Church in Claremont, NH on Thursday, December 12, at 11AM. A luncheon is planned after the service.
The Stringer Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
