kick-off of the BYU vs. Utah football game in Las Vegas. He had a full and enjoyable 82 years of life, and has shared with family and friends the meaning of “living life to its fullest”.
Norm was born in November of 1933, in Salt Lake City, UT to Elsie and Albert Eastwood. He attended Granite High School and served with the United States Navy for 4 years. Norm married Joyce Eastwood in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and have shared many wonderful and loving moments during their 58 years together including an LDS mission in Heber Valley, UT in 2007.
