On Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022, Norman Joseph Perusse, son of Wilfrid and Rose (Roy) Perusse, entered into heaven. He was married to the love of his life, Marie Candelori Perusse, for 65 wonderful years. Norman grew up and attended schools in East Berlin, and E.C. Goodwin Technical in New Britain. He retired from The Wiremold Company in Elmwood after 37 years from their Research and Development Department. While employed there he received awards and recognition for six patents for machines he developed and invented. He also was a part-time coach driver for Dattco Bus in New Britain for almost 40 years.

Besides his wife, Norman is survived by three children, Joseph and Debra Perusse of Salem; Gloria and Dale Masse of Farmington; and Diane and Christopher Fazzina of Unionville. He also leaves behind six grandchildren, Christine Brush, Amanda Gulino, Robert and Alec Masse, Sebastiana and Giuliana Fazzina, one great-grandson, Dominic Gulino, and his sister, Irene Kloos of Colorado. He was predeceased by a brother, Roger and his sisters, Colette Lallier and Margaret Brouillard.

Norman was liked by all who knew him and will be remembered for his kindness and love for others, especially his children who were his ultimate joy. The family wishes to thank Bristol Hospice for their wonderful care and detailed attention, and to Interim Health Services.
