Norman Week, age 79, of Montrose, MN passed away peacefully with his children by his side on Saturday July 8th, 2023, after a courageous 2-year battle with cancer.

Norman was born in Nore township MN on August 6th, 1943, the son of Louis and Helen Week. He was the first born of 7 siblings and was delivered by his Grandma Moon at home. He attended school in both Bergville and Blackduck MN before leaving to tend to the fields as a farmhand in North Dakota at the age of 17. After returning to Funkley MN, he married his childhood sweetheart Nita, on April 4th, 1965. He was drafted into the Army in February 1966, serving as an SP/5 in artillery which landed him in Frankfurt, Germany until the time he was discharged in January 1968. Upon returning from the service, he made his home in Montrose, MN and was employed at Eaton Corp in Eden Prairie for 35 years before retiring in 2005.

Throughout his life he enjoyed exploring the country on his motorcycle, riding his RZR and 4-wheeler, along with many camping adventures in his motorhome with friends and family. He took pride in washing and polishing his vehicles as well as maintaining a beautiful lawn. He loved to dance and was the first one on the dance floor and the last one to leave. He loved music and learned to play the accordion and keyboard by ear, not once taking a single lesson. He also enjoyed 52 years of marriage to his beloved wife before her passing in 2018.

Norman is survived by his children; Norm Week of Kuna, ID, Brian (Mary) Week of Kuna, ID and Stacy Week of Otsego, MN; sisters Katie (Ivan) Olson of Tulsa, OK, Barbara Thompson of Blackduck, MN and a brother Dan (Kim) Week of Bemidji, MN; granddaughter Shayla (Ryan) Nielsen of Nampa, ID and one great-grandson Lucas Nielsen, many other relatives and friends.
