Predeceased by Father and Mother, Sigurd and Jennie Andreasen (Pedersen), sister Norma and brother Peder Andreasen.
He was the one that everyone thought would be the last man standing. The one who looked fit and strong and healthy and yet died suddenly, without warning, at home at the age of 79 of a heart attack leaving friends and family stunned.
He had many skills and interests – athletics, music, cruising, visiting with his many good friends, caring for his lawn and garden, maintaining his home and rental properties, CNN political broadcasts and – probably most of all – talking. He could have a 30 minute conversation with a wrong number caller. If you knew Norris, you knew that you had to leave plenty of time for a chat. There was no such thing as a short visit.
He had a positive influence on countless young people over the years, largely because of his role as teacher, coach and counselor at Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows High Schools. He saved and treasured many of the letters of appreciation he received from appreciative parents and students.
He loved his family dearly. His children and grandchildren were never far from his thoughts and he was deeply proud of the wonderful people they had become. They are people of honour and compassion and loyalty, following their father’s example. They are his legacy.
Rest in peace my love. We will miss you.
No flowers, please. Donations in his memory, if desired may be sent to:
BC Heart and Stroke Foundation or Ridge Meadows Child Development Centre
You are invited to leave a personal message for the family.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Norris Arnold Andreasen September 27th 2019..
