[August 10, 2009]  Norman W. Gehlbach died July 24, 2009, at home in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Cremation has taken place, and a reception to celebrate his life was held on Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Burlington, Ontario, Holiday Inn.

Before retiring in 1998, Mr. Gehlbach held several managerial positions at Canadian Tire Corp.

He will be greatly missed by his wife, Rosemarie; his son, John; his beloved dog, Molly; his brothers, Ron, Gene and David; his sister, Donna; and other family and friends in the U.S. and Canada.

He was a passionate gardener and an avid koi fish collector. He enjoyed bonsai, breeding budgies and was a "chef extraordinaire." He was also an undaunted do-it-yourself guy who never met a project he wouldn't tackle, often with astounding results.

Norm had a remarkable presence and maintained his keen sense of humor until the end.

Memorials may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of the donor's choice.
