On Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, David Norman Fleming, loving husband and father of two children, passed away at the age of 76.
A proud Winter Garden native, Norman was born on Nov. 29, 1941, to Dalton and Emma (Woodley) Fleming. He graduated from Lakeview High School in 1960 and proceeded to study mechanical drafting in Orlando.
On June 28, 1963, he married Jimmie Mable Martin of Winter Garden. In 1965, Norman was drafted into the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany. Upon discharge, he returned home to his wife, and together they raised two children, Kimberly and Kirk.
Norman retired from UPS in 1999 to spend more time with his wife, children and soon-to-be grandchildren. Norman had several hobbies but was locally known for his exceptional gardening and woodworking skills. He was also a proud “Scottish American,” having roots traced back to the 6th century. He enjoyed genealogy and reading about Scottish history and shared this passion with his son. Norman never met a stranger and was a man of strong faith, character, integrity and passion.
Norman is preceded in death by his father, Dalton; and his mother, Emma. He is survived by his wife, Mable; his two children, Kim (Bill) and Kirk; his two grandchildren, Dalton and Sophia; his sister, Barbara; and several cousins, nieces, a nephew and an aunt.
A Celebration of Norman’s Life will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at the First Baptist Church of Montverde. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
