To know Norman was to know he loved his family, faith, and
the flag. He was a kind and caring man. He had many known
“Norman-isms” (as his family called them). Most commonly heard
were – “Ohhhh there just aren’t enough hours in the day!”, “Why
can’t they put an ad in the paper that there’s going to be a wreck
there?”, “I’m allergic to winter because it makes me cold”, or ‘I’m
allergic to pain because it makes me hurt”. Whether it was a good
laugh, a fact learned, or a story gained – he left a mark on each
person in his life.
He worked for over 30 years at General Motors and was
a proud member of the UAW local 31, where he held many
positions throughout his career. He proudly served on the Veteran
Committee, organizing care packages for the Veterans hospital.
He joined the Navy in November of 1966 where he was able
to travel to many different countries, such as Japan and Spain.
He loved going to California for his two week a year training and
site-seeing excursions with his Navy buddies. He proudly did the
Walk in December 1995 as the last retiring group at Olathe Naval
Air Station.
On top of General Motors and Navy he was also a Master
Electrician and owned Chase Electrical where he worked the
majority of his time doing home remodels in the greater Kansas
City area.
He married Robbie on December 18th, 1983 on the coldest
day on record in over a hundred years. Robbie told him she would
marry him when Hell froze over, they laughed and said the Devil
had his long johns on that day.
On November 13th, 1985 he adopted Jennifer where she
proudly became a Chase. As the final order of the judge Norman
was ordered to take Jennifer to McDonald’s to celebrate where she
promptly corrected the judge, stating “We can’t go to McDonald’s
because my dad doesn’t like it. We have to go to Hardee’s”.
Norman was born to Joy and LaVertis “Bud” Chase in
Kansas. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great
grandfather. He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years Robbie
Chase of El Dorado Springs, MO; four daughters – Rhonda & Don
York of Rayville, MO, Jeannie Kee & Shellaine Krohne of Liberty,
MO, Jennifer Chase of El Dorado Springs, MO, and Martha Chase
of Kansas City, MO; three granddaughters – Melanie & Zach
Pumphery of Orrick, MO, Julianne Wood & Simon Robertson of
Liberty, MO, and Alissa Wood of Kansas City, MO. As well as one
very special great grandson who was the light of his Papa’s world,
Grayson David of Kansas City.
He is preceded in death by his mother Joy, father Bud,
brother – Roy, sister-in-law Shirley, sister – Dorothy, and brother-in-law Casey.

    Norman Was one of the nicest kindest people I knew. Always willing to help. I just heard about his passing. Yet another wake up call to reach out to all of those who you have not seen in a while. My prayers are with you.
