It is with great sadness we mourn the loss of one of our past members Norm Babin.
Norm was a long serving member of Campbell River Search & Rescue, Norm dedicated 20 years of his life volunteering to be there for others. Norm was one of the stable go to guys when it came to helping out on any type of call or job. Norm was a member of the rope rescue team, swift water team and had many other skills that brought great advantage to the group. Norm was known for his quiet kind thoughtful manner, he never complained he just did any task that was put before him with quiet excellence.
He had wisdom and patience and would dig in and take on anything and give back that classic Norm smile. He was very involved in all aspects of SAR and was an anchor to our group in his time. Norm had a passion for all things outdoor, sailing, hiking, biking, Norm would often say " I got bored last weekend so i rode my bike to Edmonton and that was our Norm. Norm left our group several years ago due to health issues and the void was felt.
Norm left us all finally on May 31-2020, forever to sail and wander the land. Norm you were a gentle kind man who will be deeply missed by your SAR brothers and sisters, rest well our friend.
