OLD TOWN – Norman S. Nadeau passed away quietly March 5, 2009, with his niece, Mary Rustin, by his bedside. He was born Sept. 30, 1916, in Orono, the son of Earnest and Lillian (St. Peter) Nadeau. He is survived by his son, Dean of Portland; a granddaughter, Jennifer Roy; grandson, Jody Nadeau, both of Fort Kent; his brother, Lawrence “Johnny” of Orono; and sisters, Pauline Butler and Elsie Cota, both of Orono, Mamie Seymour of Old Town, Bertha Henderson of Glastonberry, Conn., and Bernice Hendrix of Dover, N.H. He has many nieces and nephews across the country. He was predeceased by his wife, Alice (Wright); sons, Howard and Paul; and brothers, Freeman, Albert, Leslie and Clarence. During his final years, he was fortunate to have the friendship and support of Officer Debbie Holmes. Norman spent several years in the late ’30s and early ’40s working in the CCC Camps in the Greenville area. After getting married in 1943, he worked for the pulp mill in Old Town until his retirement. He spent much of his spare time outdoors ice fishing, hunting and golfing. A service will be planned for later this spring. If you wish, donations may be made in his name to your local animal shelter.
