Norman John Dahl

February 3, 1958 ~ June 9, 2021 (age 63)


Norman John Dahl, age 63, of Rockland, Michigan, passed away on June 9th, at his home surrounded by his family after a decade-long battle with ALS. 

Norman was born in Garden City, Michigan to Frank and Phyllis Dahl on February 3, 1958. He married the love of his life, Kimberley Lindstrom, in 1984, always insisting he knew he would marry her from the moment they met. His life changed forever when they had their first child, Samantha, in 1985. Their family grew again in 1991, in one of his proudest moments, when Norm and Kim welcomed their son, Tor, into the world. He was endlessly devoted to his family and loved them fiercely. He was a true friend and a ready companion for revelry.

A proud Finn, Norman was hardworking and remarkably determined, or as some might say, wildly stubborn—a true embodiment of Sisu. 
Norman was an artist with a rebel's spirit. He loved music, his pottery, good food, weird movies, The Young Turks and Free Speech TV, and spending time outside in his favorite place, the Dahl family farm. He will be immeasurably missed, but will live on through the lives of those who knew and loved him.

Norman is survived by his wife, Kimberley Dahl, his son, Tor Dahl, his daughter and son-in-law, Samantha Dahl Shapin and Scott Shapin, and his sisters and brothers-in-law, Caroline and Majid Shahbaz, Laura Corral, Karina Dahl and Chris Glaudel, and Tovie and John Thunstrom. 

The family will be celebrating his life privately.
