STEVENSVILLE - Andrew Todd Norman, 32, passed away from his battle with cancer on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, at his home in Stevensville and is now in the presence of his savior, Jesus Christ.

Andy was born June 25, 1979, in Missoula to Rick and Margaret Norman. He attended early elementary school in Billings until moving in 1991 to the Stevensville area where he attended Lone Rock School. He graduated from Stevensville High School in 1998. He enjoyed playing football for the Stevensville Yellow Jackets.

Andy has been employed at Figaro Pizza, Subway and for the past nine years at Wal-Mart in Missoula where he was a department manager at the time of his death.

An avid fisherman, he enjoyed taking family and friends to his favorite fishing holes. He loved the outdoors and sports, especially liked and followed NFL football. A favorite hobby was playing video games with friends.

Andy valued family and friends and was fiercely loyal. He was a good listener with a quiet and caring spirit and a quick, sarcastic sense of humor. He was a grateful person, not one to complain. He enjoyed uncle time with his niece and two nephews. Andy will be greatly missed, especially the wonderful hugs he gave.

Andy was preceded in death by his two grandfathers, John Andrew Balch and Ralph Norman, and the love of his life, Rachel Millhouse.

Survivors include his parents, Rick and Margaret Norman of Stevensville; his brother, Toby (Tara) Norman and their three children, Kensley, Connor and Caden of Slippery Rock, Pa.; his sister, Bethany (Pablo) Calderon of Colorado Springs, Colo.; two grandmothers, Edna Balch and Barbara Norman both of Atlantic, Iowa; his beloved aunts and uncles, Nancy, Linda, Randy, Mike (Jocey) Balch, Roxie Stuit, Jo (Jack) Wagner, Kay (Dan) McCarthy, Dan (Betty) Norman and many cousins, all residing in the Midwest.

A memorial service to celebrate Andy's life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Lone Rock Bible Church, 1142 Three Mile Creek Road in Stevensville. You may contact Whitesitt Funeral Home if directions are needed.

Dear Norman Family,

I met Andy through his friend, Thomas Vines, and we had a good visit during Tom Vines's last visit, when I took Andy and Tom to the Deep Creek shooting range for a couple of hours of target shooting. I didn't know Andy well, but I will remember him as a fine young man, and I was especially sorry to learn of the loss of his girlfriend, Rachel. They were two fine young people, gone too soom. I hope with all my heart that Andy and Rachel are together again, in a better world without pain or despair.

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your son.

Sincerely,

Will Cordes
Missoula

My heart goes out to you all in this time of loss and grief. Praying for comfort that only comes from the Father's arms and peace that passes understanding. So thankful that Andy is now in the presence of Christ Jesus.
Through Him,

I love Andy and miss him so much. My heart is trying to tear itself out of my chest. I'm so sorry no words I had for him could save him, no matter how kind, loving, or angry and stern. I feel like a failure....

I met Andy while we were both living in Lolo 11 years or so ago, through mutual friends at the time. We both moved to Missoula a few years later and oddly enough were next door neighbors. Andy spent countless hours playing basketball with my children, having dinner with us and "meeting up" with my oldest on Xbox live for video games. I will always remember his genuine soul, his wonderful hugs and smile. We recently had a conversation about his hopes to get better and play "pig" with the kids again, he said, "those were the days." I will miss him terribly...My heart is broken for his family but I'm thankful he had you all and you were able to be with him through his sickness and pain. I am forever blessed to have such a friend. We will miss you "Norm".

I didn't personally have the opportunity or the pleasure of meeting Andy but have worked with Rick for many years. I know this is a time of great sorrow for Rick and Maggie and the rest of the family and I just want to express my sincere condolences to Andy's family. You have been and are still in my prayers. May God bless you and help you through this difficult time.

Maggie and Rick, I still remember baby sitting them some when we lived in Billings. He was such a sweet boy.... I will never forget the 'robbery' you had one evening when I was with the children!! It is so hard to lose a child. Our prayers are with you and Toby and Bethany and their families at this time. Alan and I are now living in San Angelo, Texas. I would love to hear from you sometime, but for now I'll be upholding you in prayer.

It is hard to lose a child. Nothing supercedes this level of pain... except for maybe living with watching your child suffer without limbs or brain matter or worse.

So, in my now-professional opinion, I would hope for Andy's family's sakes that people don't start avoiding them just because they don't know what to say. Every time you see Andy's family, walk straight up to them (rather than ducking down another aisle), give them a hug, ask them how they're doing, and even if they want to scream in their heads, "How do you THINK I'm doing? My CHILD died!" they will smile... and maybe cry.... and if they cry, just grab hold of them and hug them tight... and don't say ANYthing. But DO NOT AVOID them and their pain. If you have nothing to say, hugs are good.

To Andy's family,
I have known Andy for such a short time but came to love him sooo much. I miss him a lot already but am happy that is is in the arms of Jesus and in no more pain. I pray for the Lord to give you strength and peace during this time.
Andy: Your Face!

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that God will comfort and sustain you. Psalms 34:18 says that He is near to those broken at heart and saves those crushed in spirit. He truly knows the pain you feel. He assures us at John 5:28 that a time will soon come when we will welcome back to our arms those we have lost. Know that time is very near. Allow God to comfort your soul until that day arrives. Please keep His promises close to your heart. I offer my deepest sympathies to your entire family.

I know you guys are going to be coming to Atlantic next week. Talked to Barb today and we know that Toby and family passed through today headed to Nebraska. Just wanted you to know we will be thinking of you and praying for you next Saturday. We will not be able to attend because Hal is working for Jack so he can be able to be off and be with you all. Maybe we will catch you at church. Enjoy your family and all the memories that will be shared about Andy. We know that Jesus comforting arms are around all of you. Love and prayers, Hal & Judy.
