Garden City council still shaken by loss of Councilman Gene Norman
Garden City council still shaken by loss of Councilman Gene Norman.
Before the meeting, several observations were made.
Councilman and Mayor Pro Tempore Scott Arnold cited Hanceville Funeral Home as reporting that Norman drew the largest number of attendants ever for a visitation and funeral.
Arnold also talked about moving forward without his friend and fellow councilman, “It ain’t going to be normal; we’re going to have to get used to a new normal.
But I’ll tell you what: if you wanted an example of a Christian man, he was a Christian man.
He strived every day to do what’s right.
“He’s sorely missed.
Gene was always the one that volunteered to pray.
WHEREAS, it is a great sadness to the town of Garden City, Alabama to lose one of its important and distinguished citizens; and WHEREAS, Gene Norman was a faithful Councilmember of Garden City’s Town Council from 2012 to 2017; and WHEREAS, Gene Norman was a faithful member of Garden City’s Planning Commission from 2002 to 2017; and WHEREAS, Gene Norman served selflessly as a volunteer firefighter for Garden City’s Volunteer Fire Department for several years; and WHEREAS, Gene Norman was greatly loved and respected among those who knew him, both personally and professionally; and WHEREAS, the Town of Garden City extends its most sincere condolences to Gene’s family and friends; and NOW, THEREFORE, the Town of Garden City fondly remembers our friend and fellow Councilmember who will be tremendously missed.
