Norman Volkmann Moved On To "His Paradise"

Printer-friendly version

In Loving Memory of...

  Norman W. Volkmann of St. Charles, Missouri who died on Friday, September 4, 2009, at the age of 80. Norman was the dear son of the late Fred W. and the late Mary Volkmann; the loving father of Brad (Michelle) Volkmann, Keith Volkmann, Linda Cotner, and Anna (Jeff) Deimeke; the cherished grandfather of Joseph Cotner and Paige Deimeke; a dear uncle, cousin, and friend. He is preceded in death by his brothers, Bill, Roy, and Henry Volkmann, and his sister, Anna Woodard.

   Norman Volkmann served his country in the United States Army from 1951 - 1953.

   Norman was a man with a strong sense of family and values. Norman's schooling ended in after 8th grade, when his father died and he went to work to support his Mother. Regardless of this shortened formal education, Norman became a self-made man and later owned and operated 2 service/repair stations.  He always said that he was proof that you could make it without a formal education, yet he didn't recommend it.  He was a firm believer in the value of a good education and he wisely advised young people  that a good education is an opportunity and accomplishment that can't take away from a person.
  He enjoyed his children, grandchildren, friends, boating, yard work, and his dogs. He lived a full, blessed life!





Dear Linda, Joe and Family...
We are truly sorry for your loss and will remember your family and your father in our prayers.
At times like this it is always wonderful to remember that we are promised to move on to a peaceful life in paradise. Your Dad is now in "his paradise". When you feel sad, please try to picture exactly what paradise would be for your father and I'm sure the memories of his happiest moments here with you, and knowing he now enjoys them in his paradise forever, will bring you some comfort.
So once again, we are so sorry for your separation until you see him again...and we wish your father all the glorious pleasures promised to him in "his paradise".
God bless you all, as I know he will your father in his new home...
