Mr. Eugene Louis Normand

January 10, 1933 — November 29, 2017

Eugene L. Normand, 84, of Vonore, TN, died Wednesday, November 29, 2017, after a long illness. Born in Sanford, ME, Gene was the youngest of four siblings born to J. Oscar and Dorothy Normand in 1933. He graduated from Sanford High School as Valedictorian of the class of 1951. He received a degree in mechanical engineering from Wentworth Institute in Boston, MA. Gene started his career working in the defense industry for Martin Marrietta, Baird Atomic, and Raytheon as a Mechanical Engineer. Later he was a Manufacturing Sales Rep for a number of companies including Hitchiner Manufacturing where he met his wife Pat. During his life, he lived primarily in MA, NH, and ME. There were a couple of stints in FL before retiring to the Smokey Mountain region of Vonore, TN. Gene loved travelling the world with Pat and especially enjoyed Hawaii, Costa Rica, Australia, and numerous islands throughout the Caribbean. Family and friends were an integral part of his life and he especially relished family get togethers with his children and grandchildren at his home on Moose Pond in Bridgton, ME, and later on Ft. Loudon Lake in Vonore, where he also served as an active T-BART participant. Gene was an avid reader, tinkerer, and handyman. He was most happy being on the water in one of his own boats or sailing the seas. He enjoyed water skiing, snow skiing, fishing, and adventure. Typical social gatherings included Gene serving up his signature Goombay Smash beverage. He was also a lover of music including Big Band, Rock, and especially the Blues, having attended yearly blues festivals and embarking on many Blues Cruises. He was loyal enthusiast of the New England Patriots, and adopted the Tennessee Vols football team, upon moving to Vonore. One of Gene's favorite pastimes was discovering his ancestral roots through Genealogy Gene is survived by his wife Patricia Normand of Vonore, TN; his daughter, Cynthia (Cindy) Normand of Hampton, NH and Bridgton, ME and three sons; David Normand and his wife, Jo of Brisbane, Australia, John Normand of Merrimack, NH, James (Jay) Normand and his wife, Kim of Hudson, NH, and stepdaughters; Laurene Conrad of Vonore, TN and Susan Lindsay of Maryville,TN.; seven grandchildren; Mary Moran, Max Normand, Gelsey Normand, Audrey Normand, Lindsay Normand, Xander Lindsay, and Zoe Lindsay; and two great-grandchildren, Andrew Gross and Amelia Rose Gross, many nieces and nephews, as well as many close friends.
