Nov 6, 1930 – Apr 2, 2018
Norman William Iverson passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on April 2, 2018 at the age of 87.
Norman is survived by his wife of 19 years Daisy, daughter Janess, son Krist (Cindy), grandsons Kaare (Autumn), David and great grand daughter Sequioa. Also many extended family and friends.
Norman was born November 6, 1930 in Prince Rupert. He was the youngest son of Christian and Bess Iverson. Norman grew up in Oona River where he and good friend Johnny Bergman logged in the summer and operated Group Mills Sawmill. During the winter, Norman rebuilt boats which included the Anna 1 and his father’s boat the Silverado.
Later on Norman started gillnetting in the summers.
Norman moved to Dodge Cove in the early 1970s where he build a boat yard that got the nickname “Mickey Mouse Industries”. Many boats were built and rebuilt there including the Alpha Bay (thank you Dad). He fished halibut on the Audrey 2 and the Alpha Bay for many years. Upon a roller light being installed he promptly retired and went trolling with the Silverado, which he did for many years.
After a short time living in Prince Rupert his health forced him to move to Victoria. Though he liked it down south his stay was cut short.
