He loved the Isle of Man where he lived for past 30 years and he died there. Sad to hear that he had suffered a series of strokes in past year which affected him mentally as well as physically. He did not have much luck with wives but he did manage to raise his two children.

The day the death of Tony Curtis was announced they showed 'Some like it hot' that same evening. Was expecting to see a Norman film. No mention so far.

Norman had child like qualities, playing pranks & making people laugh in his personal life as well as in the limelight.

Throughout his life he never lost this ability to make people smile.

A grand age of 95, he leaves behind a legacy of laughter,

He will be missed, but what a lifetime he's lived.

My thoughts go out to his family & friends x

They broke the mould when they made him lol He was incredible, I am so glad he has had a pretty good life altho he has been quite poorly the last few months with several strokes, apparently he was still fairly independent till very recently. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Somehow I can't see him resting in peace, his was such a spirit that could never be still.
He will be entertaining people for evermore.

They will probably show some kind of tribute to him on the coming months.

He made me laugh so much when I was a kid.
