Norman was born in Midwest,Wyoming, the son of Roy Raymond Dressler and Waiva Mary (Banzhaf) Dressler. At the age of 5 he moved with his family to Casper, living in the house he eventually lived in at the time of his passing.
Norman was a CPL. in the United States Army, serving after the Korean war ended. He was head cook in Puscan and his kitchen was voted best in his division monthly for most of the year. Many Officers made it a point to eat there because of the good food. Our dad was the type that didn't like alot of recognition, but he was honored for his service the first day he was in Hospice. He received a certificate, a pin, a star from a flag that can no longer fly and a flag to hang on his door at Hospice. It was a moving ceremony! Thank you Hospice!!

He even helped is son and daughter-in-law remodel their house and even built a house in three months with the help of numerous family and friends for his daughter and son-in-law, which allowed him to live next door to his daughter and son-in-law for 16 years. What a wonderful 16 years!!
