Norm had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes , "Silly Sally" Jokes, among others. Lots of great memories. My deepest condolences and Love to Norm, Jr., Jennie and Family. Adam Johnson

My sincere condolences to Jennie, and to all of the Fenn family. Norman and I enjoyed many great times together. We worked together on my family's ranch during the summers, and also enjoyed spending time working on hot rods and with my family's race cars.We traveled to many race tracks together. Later in life I enjoyed working with Norman in his real estate office buying and selling properties. I feel privileged to know Norman, and may he rest in peace. John Olivero and Family.

My condolences to Normans family. His picture brought back memories of Norm, my brother, Ray Vasquez, Tom Odom, Ed Buffalo, and Yukio Matsumoto late in the evening tinkering with a car in the back yard or crowded into my moms kitchen chowing down. They were all such good friends. :pray::skin-tone-4::bouquet:
