Norman Maurice Desilets

Norman Maurice Desilets of Port Clements, B.C. passed away on January 8th, 2016. Norm, as he was known to all, was born on February 8th, 1945. He is predeceased by his parents, Emile and Irene Desilets, from Elie, Manitoba.

Norm will be greatly missed by the love of his life, Fiona Ellis, as well as 3 brothers and 2 sisters: Marc (Renate) Desilets, Fernand (Joan) Desilets, Lynette (Bernie) Desilets, Michelle (Robert) Bailey and Roger(Cathy) Desilets and 10 nephews and nieces. He will also be lovingly remembered by family and friends across Canada, the U.S. and U.K.

Norm lived in harmony and humility within his natural surroundings. He raised a pure voice, not only in song, but also in passionate defense for the care and preservation of his beautiful habitat. He was a true steward of all he was blessed with and leaves a lasting legacy among those who shared life with him in Haida G’waii.

An avid fisherman and expert river guide, Norm spent his happiest hours fishing his beloved Yakoun River. He will leave a tight line tugging on the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Norm walked gently on this earth.

May he rest in peace.
