RIORDAN, Norman William

May 8, 1022 ~ Feb. 24, 2011

Norman – a gentleman always, a wonderful man, father and friend who loved life and “did it his way”, so it is with deep sorrow that we announce his passing. Norm was predeceased by his wife of over 50 years, Eileen, by his parents Harry and Beatrice and by his brother Grant. He is survived by his daughter, Anne (Shorty), his companion and partner Janice, her family Cheri and Sandy Stefanucci and granddaughters Cassandra and Cecilia. Norm is also survived by his brothers Harry (Betty) and Ray, his sister Dorothy (Roy) and their families all in Ontario and by his fellow Shell Canada Retirees. Norman served in the Army stationed in England during WWII.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and care-aides at MRH for their compassionate care of Norman. We also would like to thank Norman’s long time family physician, Dr. Larry Lim for his patience and understanding. Your thoughtfulness and care has been most appreciated.

And so now we must say “vaya con dios” until we meet again. Donations may be sent to the BC Heart and Stoke Foundation in memory of Norman.

There will be no service by request. However, for those who wish to attend, we are holding a small gathering of friends and family on March 9, 2011 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the Recreation Hall, Brandy Wynd Estates, 22308 124th Avenue, Maple Ridge.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
