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!
