Joseph Norman Charbonneau

October 22, 1942 – May 6, 2016

We are deeply saddened to say we lost our beloved Norm in the early morning of May 6, 2016. He left our world surrounded by the love and warmth of his closest family, and knowing as he began his journey beyond, that he will live in our hearts forever.

A Service to commemorate Norm’s life will be held at the North Thompson Fall Fair Hall , 677 Dunn Lake Road, Barriere, B.C., on Saturday, May 21, at 2 p.m., followed by a tea and social at the hall.

In recognition of Norm’s passionate love for the Fall Fair Rodeo, the family will host a ‘friends and cowboys” shindig at his home on Barriere Lakes Road during the Labour Day Weekend. We will keep you posted for a date and details at a later time.

In the meantime, we will carry on as we know he would want us to, remembering him for his huge laugh, his giving heart, and his unconditional love and pride for his family.

There have been so many wonderful friends who have offered help and support through this difficult time, and we thank you all. We will surely need you to help us find our way in a world without Norm.

As a post script – Norm loved receiving cards. He kept all of them for every occasion. Please feel free to send Norm a card – he would love that; Box 1099, Barriere, B.C., V0E 1E0.
