Norman H. Gauthier Sr. of Broomfield Colorado, but a life-long Liverpool NY kid, passed away September 11, 2023.
Norm was born in Syracuse NY, lost his Mom at age 3, Dad at age 10, and was then raised by his aunts and uncles in Liverpool NY.
He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at 17 years old and proudly wore the title of Marine as a badge of honor his entire life.
Returning home he became one of the first, and youngest, Civil Service Police Sergeants in New York State working for the Town of Clay Police Department. He later served as a Detective Sergeant with the Liverpool Police Department. After his police service ended he worked for Bristol Labs, Miller Brewing, and as a Warehousing executive in Florida, Ohio, Missouri, California, and finally Texas.
At the age of 19 he married his childhood sweetheart, another village kid Bonita "Bonnie" Stever and were through thick and thin, always together, for more than 58 years.
Together on the shore of Onondaga Lake, they raised their five children, Kenneth, Gary (Mary), Norman Jr. “JG” (Cindy), Terri (Alan) Barrowcliff, and William “Bill” (Rachel).
They were blessed with 15 grandchildren, 11 Great Grandkids, and 2 Great Great Grandsons. Also left behind are his sister, Diane (Bernie) Conklin, Brother-in-law James (Brenda) Stever, and sisters-in-law Sue (Larry) Earle, and Patricia Stever, many nieces and cousins. Missing him dearly will be his constant companion, and furry chair-buddy, Bo-bo.
Early October plans are being made for calling hours, a memorial mass at Epiphany Parish - Saint Joseph the Worker church in Liverpool New York, and burial in the Onondaga County Memorial Veterans Cemetery. Details will be posted by the family.
