Norman Victor Johnson died in his Anacortes home on Friday, March 4, 2016.

Born in Ferndale, Washington on November 22, 1923 to Johnnie and Marie Johnson, he was the third of nine children. He is now reunited with three of his sisters and his parents in their heavenly home.

In 1943, Norman joined the United States Army engaging in combat duty in France, Germany and North Africa during World War II and was awarded a Purple Heart. He also served in the Washington Air National Guard.

He was married in 1946 to Helen Einerwold (Trott) and they had two children: Doreen (Mark) Olson and Marvel (Gregg) Collings. In 1975 he married Marian Olson and together they raised four children: Kim (Brad) Severns, Kyle Olson, Kay (Mel) Oltman and Kent Olson. He has seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He will be missed by all.

Norm worked for Mills Electric in Bellingham and was also a civilian worker in the National Guard, but his first loves were fishing, hunting, cars and music. Having played the saxophone, clarinet and guitar, he loved country-western, jazz and gospel music.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 19, at Bellingham Covenant Church (1530 E Bakerview Rd) where Norm was a member for many years. A military service and interment will take place sometime later at Tahoma National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project or to Hospice of the Northwest. Peace to his memory.
