Norm Goheen

Our dear, dear friend, Norm Goheen, passed away Sunday, at approximately noon, after a 5½ month, courageous, and hard-fought battle with cancer.

We cherished the Wednesday nights spent at Norm's, building rods, sharing stories, making friends, and having Norm's always high expectations subtly instilled in us. We have not begun to comprehend the absence Norm's passing has created, nor how will we get through a Wednesday without him or our friends.

I have a rod that is unfinished, and I don't know if I can finish it. In all the rods that we have built, there is something of Norm in each one. I can not decide whether to retire those or continue to fish with them. Breaking one of them would be like losing Norm all over again, but not using them would be like putting Norm on the shelf.

We will miss Norm and Brother Mike and their stories of fishing and childhood memories.
