I was saddened this weekend to hear of Norman passing away. I worked with Norman for many years and he was one of those people you just relied on to perform because he always did.I can recall many occasions when big cranes were booked for critical jobs and standing at the side of a motorway in the middle of the night in snow and rain.Very often when all looked lost Norman would be under the troubled crane and one way or another it would be on its way again.
I send my sincere condolences to Pauline and family.
Rest in peace old lad !

Your article sums it up. Norman was one of the Greats in our Industry. He could rightly hammer you for any fault but the kindly offer a solution. His knowledge was vast and a credit to Hewden and well respected and valued by them. Many improvements in cranes were down to his understanding of what wouldn't break. It was an honour to have worked alongside him as a supplier and friend. Barry Barnes

Sad news, Norman was one of the good guys, always up to his elbows in oil, with or without overalls. Not many of his ilk left now, God bless mate
