    Barb,It is so sad to hear that a life was taken way to soon, I still remember the first few months when I joined the Finning team 15 years ago, he taught me many things that I still cherish today and will pass on to my sibling.

  29. Very sorry for your loss.
    I worked with Norm my first day at Angus as a HD Mechanic. A Prince of a man with patience that no other could ever match.
    Any of us that interacted with Norm have all taken something positive away.

    My deepest sympathies to the Tanguay family. Norm will missed by many. He was a great inspiration to so many at Finning. He helped me and worked with me when I first started at Finning 18 years ago. He was one of my mentors here. I thank him for all his hard work and patience.

    I didn’t actually meet Norm in person until a few years ago on a trip to Calgary but when I walked into the branch and closed my eyes, I recognized the voice right away.

    When I heard of his passing it was such a shock. This world has lost a great person.
