Duane Norman passed away on April 13th, 2019 in Pleasanton, CA at the age of 88. He touched many lives with his outgoing spirit, kindness and generosity and will be greatly missed.

Born on a farm in Kindred, North Dakota on February 14th, 1931 to parents Arnold Norman and Clara Bergh, Duane was the oldest of three children. The family moved to California in 1936 and settled in Hayward. Duane graduated from Hayward Union High School in 1949 and, after a year of working on his uncle’s farm in North Dakota, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1951. He was assigned to the U.S.S. Oriskany and saw action during the Korean War. He received several commendations and was honorably discharged after serving for four years. This service was followed by a 35+ year career at Clearprint Paper Company in Emeryville where he retired from his position as Plant Superintendent.
