Obituary for Norman J. Grove

Norman J. Grove, age 85 of Gettysburg, formerly of Chambersburg, passed away Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at his home, while surrounded by his loving family. He was born Saturday, May 27, 1933 in Trenton, NJ, the son of the late John R. and Bessie C. (Pullen) Grove.

Norman graduated from Chambersburg High School in 1951. He owned and operated Grove Brothers Lumber, Inc. in Chambersburg for 36 years. He enjoyed a long, active retirement, from 1992 to the present.

He was a member of American Legion Post 28 in Rehoboth Beach, DE and Moose Lodge # 482 in Chambersburg.

Norm loved boating, saltwater fishing, and hunting. He was a woodworking hobbyist, and he enjoyed listening to live music played by his son and grandsons on the back porch. He looked forward to daily visits by his daughter and frequent weekend barbecues. Norm was loved and respected by his family for his wry sense of humor and his steadfast wisdom and guidance.

He served in the United States Army during the Korean War.
