Obituary for Norman M. McLeod

GROVETON - Norman “Mac” “Norm” M. McLeod, 87, passed away on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at Genesis Country Village Center in Lancaster. Norman was born in Gorham, New Hampshire on June 12, 1931, the son of Rodney McLeod and Flora (Lyman) McLeod. After his mother’s death, when he was three years old, he went to live with Perley and Hazel Hapgood, of North Stratford. He married Patricia A. Gilman on April 4, 1951 and they resided in the town of Groveton to raise their three children.

He enlisted in the United States Navy, during the Korean Conflict on June 22, 1948 and received an Honorable Discharge on June 20, 1952. After his discharge from the U.S. Navy, he started working for the Groveton Paper Mill from June 26, 1952 and retired from Wausau Papers of New Hampshire on June 30, 1993.

Norman was a parishioner of St. Francis Xavier Church, St. Marguerite d’Youville Parish in Groveton, an American Legion, Post 0017 member for 56 years and a former member of the Groveton Moose Lodge. He served his community as a volunteer firefighter for many years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at his camp with friends and family. He enjoyed going to basketball games with his friends and seldom ever missed going to a game to cheer on the Groveton Eagles basketball team. During the basketball season and playoff games he would be seated on the bottom bleacher at the center court line. He not only went to the playoffs for the hometown team, but for all the basketball teams of the North Country. He was also an avid fan of the Boston Red Socks and the New England Patriots.

He is survived by his three children, Darlene Collins and husband Clifford of Spring Creek, Nevada, Bonnie Auger and husband David, and John McLeod and wife Betty, of Groveton, NH, a sister, Phyllis Baillargeon, of Dover, NH, six grandchildren, Daniel Libby, Tanya (Libby) Campbell, Tiffany (Libby) Hart, Patrick McLeod, Ryan Auger and Gregory Auger; 15 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Norman is predeceased by Patricia McLeod, his wife of 60 years, his parents, his brother Daniel McLeod, his sisters Bernice Wheeler and Florence Burgess, his grandson Michael McLeod, Norman’s half-brother and half-sisters of the Goodno family.
