  • Marriage: He was married on May 21, 1960 in Green Bay, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died on September 18, 2016, at age 77.
  • Note: Norman (Norm) Joseph Champeau, 77, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 18, 2016 after a long illness. He was lovingly surrounded by his family at home. Norm was born on February 28, 1939 in Bay Settlement, WI to the late Edward and Josephine (Kujava) Champeau.

    Norm served in the U.S. Navy from 1956 to 1958. He enjoyed the time he spent serving his country. After the Navy, he married his dear love Margaret (Toots) Heyrman on May 21, 1960 at St. Philip Church in Green Bay. Norm served an apprenticeship as a mason, and throughout the years, he mastered his craft and started a business with brother-in-law, partner and friend, Dick Heyrman, until his retirement in 2000. His life-long passions included fishing, hunting (the deer and fish were always bigger than everyone else's), spending time at the cottage, trips to Canada, making wood and reading. Norm could play a mean game of poker and loved his western movies. He was a private, religious man with a gentle and caring heart. If you had a question about religion, history or current events, he could answer them all.
