Robert (Bad Bob) George NormandinAugust 11, 1949 – June 5, 2019
It is with sadness we announce the passing of our dear friend Bob, on June 5, 2019. He was born August 11, 1949 in Minn. Bob served in the US Army for two years during the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged.
A longtime resident of Elko, Nevada, Bob took pride in being a skilled equipment operator for 17 years at Barrick Goldstrike. Bob loved sports and played both hockey and softball in his youth. He had two passions during his life, golf which he played often until the time he put away his clubs for his Harley. When he was on his bike you could see a smile on his face and joy in his heart, noted his close friends.
Bob enjoyed his ten year retirement riding on many charity Poker Runs with his biker buddies. He will be missed by his close circle of family and friends.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents, Eli and Marian (Muir) Normandin. He is survived by his children; Shawn Normandin, Sherman Normandin, Shelia Olson; sister, Joyce (Gary) Deshields, Bentonville, AR; brothers, James (Jacquie) Normandin, Crookston, MN; Richard (Patti) Normandin, Salt Lake City, UT; Roger (Mary) Normandin, Mankato, MN; and Dale (Debbie) Normandin, Lake City, SD.
