Norm was my youth exchange counsellor during my time as a Rotary Exchange Student with the Wangaratta Rotary Club. I have fond memories of our chats at club meetings and the counsel that Norm provided me during my exchange year. Deepest condolences to the Ryan family.

Sorry to hear of Norm's passing.
He was very influential in the rebirth of North Footscray in the early 70's and beyond. A true gentleman.
I will miss his phone calls to keep me up to date ...and have I paid my past players membership.
I will drink a toast to one of the best.
