Peacefully, with his family at his side, Norman Vincent Avery, of Charlottetown, aged 72, passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on May 21, 2023.
Norman was born an islander but spent many wonderful years working and raising a family in Moncton, New Brunswick. He was employed by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan in Sussex, NB for over 25 years. Additionally, he owned and operated an electrical contracting business in Moncton. He was an advocate for workplace safety and the wellbeing of his co-workers. Norman was a volunteer with NB wheelchair rugby, enjoyed hockey and was a car enthusiast. He enjoyed traveling, food, music and playing a good practical joke. He was a helpful neighbor and proud of the accomplishments of his loved ones. He returned home to spend his last few years on the island.
Beloved husband of Marion (Duffy) Avery and dear father of Chandra Avery (Matthew Roach) and Patrick Avery (Erin). Proud "Poppy" of Jenna Roach, Ella Roach and Alfie Avery.
