We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Zentner Funeral Homes
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Norman Edward Coutts at the Willow Creek Continuing Care Centre in Claresholm, Alberta.
Norman was predeceased by his parents Benjamin and Susan Coutts, brothers Robert (Bob), Gordon, Jerry, Archie, Harry and sister Margaret.
Norman was a kind, gentle soul. He enjoyed a good joke and had the most mischievous grin. It was always a pleasure when he would show up, expected or unexpected. He loved animals and provided a great home for many dogs and cats throughout his lifetime.
Norman enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces on August 20, 1950. He served for the 2nd PPCLI. His Theatres of Service included Japan and the Special Force in Korea. He received medals from the United Kingdom, Canada and the United Nations for his service in Korea. He also received the American President’s Citation for his service. Following his medical discharge, he was employed in the forestry industry for many years. He also served as a Commissionaire at Olds College.
Three generations of nieces and nephews survive Norman.
