Born in Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., with two notable exceptions Norm didn’t stray far from his birthplace. Prepping at St. Albans School in D.C., he attended Georgetown School of Medicine; completed his internship and residency in otorhinolaryngology (head and neck surgery) at the Washington Hospital Center and practiced in his field for 34 years. He died June 9, 2022, at Grand Oaks Assisted Living Community in Washington, D.C. 

The only periods not spent in Washington were first, his years at Princeton where he coxed the freshman crew, ate at Dial Lodge, and displayed his singing talents with the Glee Club and Chapel Choir. The other time was a three-year tour from 1966 to 1969 at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan, as a lieutenant commander-physician in the Navy Medical Corps.

Coinciding with his practice, Norm was a commander in the Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem with a gold medal for service, a life member of the St. Andrew’s Society of Washington, D.C., an assistant professor of otorhinolaryngology at Georgetown University, a clinical professor of surgery at George Washington University, a consultant at the National Institutes of Health, and a head and neck surgeon at Sibley Memorial Hospital. 

Norm is survived by his sister; three children of his first marriage; and four grandchildren.
