Norman Alfred Propson Sr., 74, of Forest Junction died Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 at his home in Forest Junction.
He was born Dec. 4, 1939, son of the late Ambrose and Helena (Hoerth) Propson.
Norman proudly served in the United States Army. He was a member of Stockbridge American Legion and worked at Tecumseh in New Holstein for 30 years. Prior to his time at Tecumseh, Norman drove semi across the country. He enjoyed the time he spent on the road and enjoyed the places it took him. Later in life he also drove school bus for Daun Bus Services.
He was an avid outdoorsman, especially hunting, fishing, and numerous snowmobile trips. Norm was a jack-of-all-trades who was mechanically inclined, so much so that he was able to fully disassemble a vehicle and put it back together again.
In Norman's life, polka music reigned supreme and he loved the trip to Germany he took with the Jerry Schneider Band. Norman was truly a unique individual and those that knew him never had to question what was on his mind since his thoughts were freely shared with anyone around him.
Survivors include his children, Larry Propson of Green Bay, Rebecca Voelker of Chilton, Denise Propson of Manitowoc, Jeffrey (Kelly) Prospon of Chilton, Darlene Thurwachter of Chilton, Norman H. Propson Jr. of New Holstein; numerous grandchildren; and a great-grandchild arriving in a few weeks; his sister and brother, Lillian (John) Ecker of Stockbridge, Jerry (Nancy) Propson of Hilbert; a sister-in-law Hannah Propson; and a brother-in-law Jerry Coenen. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother Frederick Propson; and a sister Virginia Coenen.
