Norm served his country in the United Stated Marine Corp and owned and operated Snyder Plumbing and Heating for many years until his retirement. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, Harmony Society and the Elks Lodge. Norm also enjoyed flying airplanes and instructing students out of the Lawrenceville airport for years, and was an instructor in the aviation department at Vincennes University. Later in life Norm called himself a Gentleman’s Farmer, and he enjoyed doing work on the farm he grew up on. One of Norm’s favorite past times was traveling across different parts of the country on his Harley with a group of good friends from Vincennes. Most importantly though, Norm enjoyed spending time with his daughters, son in laws, and his grandchildren.
