KNUBLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-26 published
PREECE, Norman Brian
Norman died as he would have it, peacefully in his chair at his home, Hillholm. An accomplished administrator, he lived, and believed in, a rounded life dedicated to family and community. This was based on a personal commitment to lifelong learning, travelling, physical activity and church, particularly his beloved St. Andrew's Anglican Church. Educated at Worcester College, Oxford, he served with the Green Howards as a lieutenant in Nigeria. Norman emigrated to Canada with his wife, Rita, in 1958. He pursued a career in the steel business as President of Stanton Pipes (Canada) Limited. Norman and Rita welcomed Mark, Amanda and Claire and settled in Grimsby, enjoying and sharing their home and garden for 45 years, holding their 'parties on the lawn' for Friends and family including his extended Ridley family as well as for inner city students, creating memorable school outings. Norman attended Harvard in 1970 for an advanced executive management program. During his career, he served on the boards of Ipsco, Sysco and Burlington Steel. Norman was also Vice-Chair, SidbecNormines Inc. At 54, he changed course to other ventures, committing his considerable talents to advancing health care in the community. He accomplished this by being a member of the team that raised over $14 million to build the Hamilton General Hospital; he was asked to join the board of the Hamilton Civic Hospitals Foundation and chaired that board from 1989-1991; Subsequently, he became part of the Hamilton Civic Hospitals Board where he was instrumental in the merger of the ChedokeMcMaster Hospitals and the Hamilton Civic Hospitals. He then served with distinction as the Inaugural Chair of the merged hospitals corporation now known as Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation (1996-1998). He loved reading and sports. He achieved notable successes in track and field and in rugby on the combined Oxford-Cambridge Woodpecker team in his younger years. Committed to the power of spirit through recreational development, he took on leadership roles on the Advisory Board of the Young Men's Christian Association for over 40 years. His absolute favourite sport pastime was watching his grand_sons, Spencer and Thomas, playing hockey, soccer and running. Norman's pain at the loss of his beloved son, Mark, was never fully overcome. To honour his memory, he took up a new cause, the Mark Preece Family House, with vigour and the stubborn perseverance that was a common trait in everything he did. Over a 45 year span, he served in advisory and fund raising capacities with the Hamilton All-Star Jazz Band, the Hamilton Convention Centre, the Salvation Army, the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce. Much loved by his wife and companion of 49 years, Rita, she will miss his support and dry wit. Other saddened family members who will miss his special touch include daughters, Claire (Don SAVIN) and Amanda (John KNUBLEY,) and Lisa (Jacques TITTLEY.) Adored grandchildren that will live his legacy include Thomas and Spencer, Claire, Tamisha and Jack, and Henry, Nicholas and Edward. Brother, Barry, steadfast friend from Picton, North Yorkshire, and his family, will miss his caring calls and visits. The Friends and colleagues he leaves behind in Canada, England and Barbados at his much loved Pirate's Inn will remember him with humour and admiration. His family simply never will forget the true character he was and how he tried to live his life through leadership and learning.
