Obituary

Palmer, Norman J. Buehler passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at the age of 87. Norman was born on June 2, 1930 in Carlstadt, NJ to the late William and Rose (Marini) Buehler. Norman served in the Navy from 1948-1951 and took part in the Berlin Airlift earning the Naval Occupation Medal. He loved the ocean and spent much of his youth on the New Jersey coast with his cousins. He always thought it was ironic that he joined the navy and was never on a ship.

He met the love of his life, Alice (Garceau) in Palmer, MA while stationed at Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, MA and spent the remainder of his life in Palmer. Norman made a career as a truck driver. He loved to drive and one of his favorite places to drive around was the Quabbin Reservoir. He was also a big fan of the Boston Red Sox and was so excited when he got to meet Big Poppi and see the World Series trophies in Concord, NH in April 2014.

Norman was pre-deceased by his wife, Alice in 2006 after 53 years of marriage. He is survived by his son William of Palmer, MA and by his daughter Sandra Champagne and husband William Champagne of Concord, NH.

A calling hour will be from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. preceding the service. For those wishing to honor his memory, donations may be made to St.Thomas Church, thorndike St,Palmer 01069.
