December 13, 1941 – October 6, 2018
Kirincich, Norman Anthony – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Norman from cancer. His presence will be dearly missed by his wife Brenda, his daughters, Nikki (Kirk; grandchildren, Kandis and Bradley); and Lisa (grandchildren, Dario, Rico and Enzo); his sister Mary Karuza from Bellingham, Washington (nephews, Frankie, Anthony, and niece, Rosemarie); and sisters-in-law, Annie Kerns (nephew Mark), and Marie Willey (nephew Richard; niece Terri).
Norman grew up in the east end of Vancouver, and touched the lives of many through his varied career choices fromcommercial fishing on his dad’s boat to all aspects of the trucking industry, including management. He later became a Customs Inspector at the Aldergrove Border crossing until he retired. Norman was a hard-working man and in his spare time, helped run two family businesses: Westland Feeds and Farms in Aldergrove, and the Homezone Furniture Company in Abbotsford. Norman and his wife retired to the Cariboo in 2002, where he was proud to become a volunteer fireman for the Lac La Hache Fire Department for several years. His hobbies were renovating houses, and becoming an active member of the 100 Mile Auction Group.
In lieu of a service, Norman’s wishes were that he is remembered through private reflections and personal memories.
