LEWISTON – Norman Gene Child Sr., 56, of Lewiston, died unexpectedly Saturday morning, May 30, at his home on Pine Street.

He was born in Lewiston on June 17, 1952, the son of Flora B. Soper and Clarion Child.

Norman enjoyed music and was a wonderful guitar player. He also enjoyed bingo and family gatherings at the home of his parents and brothers in Auburn.

Norman was a big-hearted man who always put others before himself. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. I will be listening for his music playing in heaven; goodbye for now, friend!

He is survived by his children, Melissa Treadwell of Greene, Clyde Herrick of Sabattus, Norman Child Jr. of Lewiston, Sheldon Child of Lewiston, Richard Foster of Otisfield and Kevin Child; beautiful grandchildren; one great-grandchild; three sisters, Susan Bowden and her husband, Steve, of Lewiston, Linda Levesque and her husband, Robert, and Clarissa Collins; four brothers, Bruce Soper of Auburn, Donald Soper of Auburn, Harold Soper Jr. of Lewiston and Irvin Child; and several nieces and nephews.
