Norman Joseph DiGiulio, “Grandpa Norm”, age 72, of Auburn, Georgia passed away suddenly on Monday August 25, 2014. He was born in 1942 in Chicago Heights, Illinois. He was an Interior Decorator/Painter, Real Estate Salesman, and most recently retired from the Home Depot after many years of service. He also bred and showed German Shepherds in his younger years. Most importantly, he was a devoted family man. He was an amazing father and grandfather, a kind and gentle man full of love and loved by so many. No matter what, if his children needed him, he would move mountains to help them. His love was unconditional and others always came first. He also had an amazing sense of humor. His jokes, smile and laughter will be missed terribly. Norman is survived by his sons, Frank Joseph DiGiulio, Jon Christopher DiGiulio; daughter Laura Lynn Henschel and husband Craig; loving companion Lyn Mudon Wendling; sister Audrey Imogene Kunza; grandchildren Lesleigh, Rebecca, and Joseph Henschel, Kailan and Lauren DiGiulio; one great granddaughter and a host of other relatives. He was preceded in death by his parents Frank DiGiulio, Martha Lucille (Stassi) DiGiulio, and sister Elgy Notarnicola. There will be a celebration of his life for all of his family and friends at a later date.
