Norman G Sargent went to be with the Lord on Wednesday January 01, 2020, in the comfort of his own bed, amid his family. 28 days before his Birthday. George his famous nickname (for himself and them), for those who knew him well. He will be remembered for his Yankee Wit and uncanny ability to make people laugh.
Norman was born in Wolfeboro, NH on January 29, 1944, the first born of Gerald and Rosemay Sargent. He was the oldest of four children. He grew up in Center Ossipee, NH and Chickville, NH attending local schools. Norman spent many hours with his grandparents Harry and Agnes Abbott, helping on the farm, working in the Grocery Store (Abbotts & Staples) and later frying clams at Abbotts Dairy Bar. He attended Kennett and Brewster High Schools. He earned his Electrical Apprenticeship working for Dexter Remick of Tamworth, NH. He went on as a Master Electrician working out of Union Local 234 in Concord, NH for twenty years. While there he worked on many large projects including, Kennett High School in Conway, CN Brown Paper Mills in Berlin, Seabrook Dog Track, Plymouth State College, and Huggins Hospital, to name a few. He later owned and operated N.G. Sargent Electric before he retired in 2010.
He was an expert marksman and enjoyed making his own ammo, target shooting with his brother Joe behind his house.
Norman was an avid Bluegrass Music fan and very proud of his custom-made left-handed Martin. He entered several talent shows when he was a young artist. As an adult he and Lee Waterhouse traveled together to many festivals where he played and met many other fans and entertainers. Later he played with Dick, Randy, Jerry, Dean and Phyllis in their local band. He also enjoyed photography, gardening, watching birds and other wildlife from his window at home.
He supported many charities including St. Josephs Indian School, St. Jude’s, Animal Shelters and Joel Osteen who he watched and prayed with daily.
