  1. My sympathy to Barbara and family.
    I looked forward to Norm’s regular emails and his comments on his life and epic car trip around Australia. He provided ancestry data about the connections between his family and the Shipp family and also the Parsons family who are conducting his funeral service.
    Thankfully we know Norm is with the Lord.

  2. Sorry to hear of Norm’s passing. My sympathy to Barbara and family.

  3. Always enjoyed Norms detailed emails – my condolences to the family.

  4. My sympathy to Barbara and the family. William Street will not be the same without him. I will miss his emails and the lively discussions. Who will pop their head over my side fence to tell me my oranges need picking, or show me photos of cockatoos eating my mandarines. Foolishly I imagined he would always be there, with his advice and generosity. RIP Norm.

  5. Thinking of all the family at this time. Where uncle Norman is he will definitely will be fishing.
    He will be missed by everyone.

  6. Thinking of you Barbara, Greg, Joanne, Liz and families. On behalf of the Phillips family we send our love and condolences. The service was lovely even with the covid rules of 10 people. Some funny times talked about and my dad tells me more. (Watching from Germany). I’m sure there were many more who would have loved to be there to farewell their beautiful friend Norm. I know dad is grieving for the loss of a mate. Dad will definitively miss the chats with Norm about fishing. Xxx

  7. Peter Shipp

    Norm, to me, was a person I always lookup to. He was one of my Sunday School teachers and always a good friend. I was always impressed by his knowledge and experience, both in his electrical and mechanical ability. He was always helpful and kind, sharing his experience where he could. I am so thankful that I was able to catch up with him on my recent short stay in Wollongong. I always visited Norm, when in town. He will be greatly missed by all.

  8. Our Sympathies to Barbara and all the family. We will miss him dearly. As regulars to the LCW motorhome group he will be missed sorely. The latest gadget and its workings was always a novelty. But mostly the continuing news stories will be very much missed. Maybe Barbara will continue these. Anyway we enjoyed them immensely. The ability to share the motorhomes spare electric power was always appreciated.

    We know that Norm was an devout Christian and this is the best of all!

  9. Always remember our times fishing. Love to all

  10. Barbara, sympathies to you and your family. I have just found this notice. Ray and I, both enjoyed the many conversations we have had with Norm and you. Going to miss Norm’s emails. We have such fond memories and Norm will always be in our heart as he was such a beautiful person. Be safe with your family supporting you and hope we will get to see you in the future.

  11. I was shocked to hear of Norm’s death. I have so enjoyed his emails and pictures. To Barbara and all the family I extend my love and prayers. May you know the comfort and love of the Lord that Norm served so faithfully over many years. Allan and Sue Anderson

  12. I got a shock to here that Uncle Norman was gone . You always think that that things will never change.We always loved him and Aunty Barbara turning up at our place out of the blue.He would be out at night looking for rabbits which we have plenty of as well as fishing in the creek.The last time we were at Wollongong he made us drive the new car and we all talked all the way to Mt Keira on how every has change.He was full of life and had a lot of interest in lots of things. He was always happy and looked forward to their next trip. I will miss him as he had a lot to do in my life. See you one day Rosemary and Neil
