Norman LaFountain, age 55, of Lamar, passed away May 4, 2015 at his home.
Norman was born in Boston, Massachusetts where he spent his childhood and graduated from high school. He had lived in Lamar for the past eight years and had worked as a fork lift operator at Thorco Industries. After retiring due to declining health, Norman had more time to spend with friends and hobbies he enjoyed. He had a natural “green thumb” and would introduce himself to neighbors by giving them one of his many houseplants. Animals were drawn to Norman and he was a wonderful dog-sitter for travelling friends. Music was a major interest to Norman, and evenings devoted to karaoke with friends like Jessie Taylor were a favorite pastime. He also appreciated the opportunity to board the bus and spend a day at Downstream. Many will remember Norman as a practical joker with a boisterous, infectious laugh that made everyone feel just a little better because they had spent time with him.
A graveside funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Friday, May 15th at Lake Cemetery with Pastor Jeff Quigley officiating.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the charity of the donor’s choice.
