    Default Remembering Norm Borczon

    I am very very sorry to announce this, our dear friend Norm passed away yesterday.

    I have been notified by his son Kingsley and read his message 30 minutes ago. I am out of words and my heart is bleeding. When I get home I will post his message here.

    Don't know what we should do about the race tonight but I thought everybody should know this before the race. Maybe we can do few parade laps, don't know, admins can decide, my hands are still shaking and I'm out of words.

    Jon

    Holy...

    ....RIP Norm.


    My vote is, we do this race in honor of him. Run it as a tribute. I think he would like that.

    Wow.....that hurts.

    Please send his family my condolences, Jon. I had become quite close to Norm over the last few months.
    I'm stunned.

    That was sudden! What a shame, I didn't know he was ill. Wish I had time to say good bye, but to late now.
    I will say a prayer for his family and I hope all those who also know Jesus as their Lord and saviour will say
    a prayer for his family? Very, very sad!

    Oh......I can't adequately describe at the moment how I felt about Norm"s passing....totally unexpected....just a great friend and teacher, a fun competitor, a guy who was always there with a suggestion, or an online laugh, or an email conversation ranging from astronomy to track conversions....I really am shocked, not only at the suddenness, but also by the empty space that will always be in me that Norm used to occupy.

    I cannot race tonight, not even a tribute lap. I will, rather, race the entirety of the next season thinking of this man who was passionate about racing, who could give me a laugh when the last thing I felt like doing was laughing, and who was a person I was proud to call my friend.

    Jon, if you have the email or snail mail address for Kingsley or Mrs. Norm, will you please post it or send it to me? I'm sure many of us have things we'd like to tell them.

    Norm was a nice person and a good racer. I haven't been on this site for a while and I'm shocked. RIP Norm

    I don't believe it. I have no words. My heart goes out to his family. Norm was one of the good guys. I'm in shock.

    I'm not sure I even want to race tonight. It doesn't seem to important right now.

    Wow is right. He was always so positive and a pleasure to know. I've raced with Norm since the end of NR2002 and into rFactor. I helped him and ran some of the leagues we had at MNRL back then. We use to spend hours every week developing setups and working on the next mod we were going to run.
    Norm was special and loved racing. He will be missed. As Jason said, we race as Norm would want us to do. He was running a league when another good friend of ours Past away and we raced that night in his honor too.
    ...RIP Norm.

    Very Sad to hear this. I only knew Norm thru sim racing, he was a great guy to chat with on line. Always had a good word for all.

    I wasn't going to do tonights race because of all the issues I was having with rfactor, but if we are doing a few memorial laps, I would like to join in.
