    My sincerest and deepest condolences to the Allard family. I enjoyed getting to know Norman at Al Asad Fire Department and have some great memories, he was always there to assist and lend his knowledge and experience to me, and anyone that asked. He influenced everyone around him and made us all better. Rest easy brother.

    I will never forget the compassion and guidance you showed me. It was a challenging time all those years ago as a brand new firefighter at my first assignment. Men like you shaped more careers than you will ever know. God Bless your family and please know his great legacy will live forever in the hearts and minds of the countless people he touched. All my best.

    Countless God sent men in all firehouses over my time, and you my legend of legends…you were a human magnet, if one did not gravitate towards you, they had no heart and soul…All of us would run through brick walls for you without hesitation…”common sense & training” was the requirement within your calling….When you retired it was like taking King Kong off that Island, it left the natives gutted…for all you were & meant to me, you were a genuine friend…I miss that the most…RIP legend, there was nobody like you…

    Norm working side by side with you and learning from you and together has been one of the best experiences of my life. You passion for the Fire Service and dedication to your people has been a beacon for more people than anyone could realize. Rest In Peace brother, you have moved on to a better place but know your legacy will live for ever.

    I am heartbroken and so devastated to learn Norman has gone to be with our Lord.
    I have so many beautiful memories of our high school days together.
    I loved hanging out watching him cook at Lum’s waiting for his shift to end so we could go riding around in that old green Ford pick-up he had.
    I pray that the memories of his love and laughter will someday help you all through this very difficult loss.
    My love and prayers for all of us who Norman touched and brightened our lives!
    Your shift has ended-Rest In Peace my darling friend!
