"Norman was a member of our club since Fisherwick days and was a great chessplayer, but more, a great man. He won the Board 4 prize last season but I never got the chance to present it to him. He always gave me a lift home to the New Lodge Road on his way home to Tiger's Bay and we had many an interesting chat on the way. He will be sorely missed and condolences to his family and many friends." Martin Kelly.


The funeral service is at Roselawn Crematorium on March 16: 10:30am
