Norman Macleod Kiernander of Brampton, Ontario, passed away peacefully on August 10, 2023 after a brave battle with cancer at the age of 73. Norm was born in Calcutta, India, moved to England as a child and grew up in Montreal, Quebec.
Norman was born on May 14, 1950 to Norman Fothergill Kiernander and Olga Marie Kiernander.
Norman is survived by his wife Karen, his three children, Kristen (Daniel), Kendra (Ian) and Braeden, his six grandchildren, Raya, Autumn, Grayson, Landon, Christian and Everleigh along with his Golden Retriever, Missy. He is also survived by his siblings June, Joyce, Donna, Rudi and wife Joanne, his brothers-in-law, Kevin and Bill, sisters-in-law, Margaret, Marlene, Eileen (Bea) and Karen along with many nieces and nephews. Norman was predeceased by his parents, his sister Winifred, brother Warren and brothers-in-laws Kenny, Tom and Len.
Norman held many titles in his life, from being a successful real-estate agent and serving as an auxiliary police sergeant for over 30 years, however, his favourite role was being a Father and Grandfather. He loved nothing more than spending time with his children and grandchildren which brought him so much joy. He was always there for them, whether he was providing advice or lending a helping hand. In his spare time, he enjoyed his cottage for many years and vacationing in Muskoka, gardening, volunteering in his community and listening to music.
We will always remember Norm as a man who had a heart as big as the sky and met everyone with love and respect. Norm was a kind and caring soul. May he rest in peace.
Donations in memory of Norman to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
