Little Bob Norman
Another DZ pilot has moved on to other skies. If you ever jumped at Antioch or Byron in the 70's and 80's you probably flew with a little guy wearing a bomber jacket and yellow Taxi driver hat. That was our buddy, Little Bob. Bob has been battling cancer and other illness for the past 2 years and moved on this morning. The family is collecting stories and pictures if anyone has one they'd like to add. Bob Norman on Facebook is one way to pass it on, or Blueeyedangelz70@aol.com for his daugher Leslie.
I found a picture of “Little Bob” he was flying the 182 at Hollister. It was in the 1993 USPA Calendar for the month of May. It’s a great photo. Bob flew at the California Parachute Club in Livermore for years. He was great guy and I'll really miss him.
Thanks for all those great rides to altitude. You will be remembered and missed. Good luck on your new assignment. Now, just for old times sake, if you could make one more run from the peas to the trees, how about 5 left ..., gimme a cut..... DOOR !
The Bob Norman Memorial will be held on Sunday, March 20 from Noon unitil 3:00p.m. at Bay Area Skydiving on the Byron Airport. Fittingly enough, this is half way between the old Antioch and Livermore drop zones, where Little Bob flew many a load. Bring your "Elevator One" stories. The event has a facebook page titled "Memorial for Bob Norman"
