Norman Roy Dickinson, Jr., 57 years old, of Lewiston Maine passed away in his home on 14 May 2023. His death was unexpected and sudden but of natural causes. Family and friends had noticed Norm’s slow physical decline over a period of months and were working to get him some much-needed medical attention, but Norm did not have a favorable attitude towards what the medical industry has become today and procrastinated seeking help.\nNorm is the son and is survived by Norman R. and Lynda E. Dickinson of Fairfield Center Maine. He is also survived by his brother Douglas A. and his wife Melanie (Corson) Dickinson of Oakland Maine and their two sons Douglas Jr. and Christopher. Norm’s daughter, Valerie J. Dickinson of Readfield Maine and her two beautiful daughters Amaya and Cassandra. The family would also like to thank Ann Fields, a dear and devoted friend of Norm’s who cared for him and checked in on him regularly in his final weeks.\nNorm was like a star so bright that it burned through its life too quickly. He was an ambitious entrepreneur in every sense of the word. Norm was always on the cusp of the next big dream and never satisfied with his incredible accomplishments in life. A rugged and popular football player in high school, “Storman Norman” worked a few odd jobs before beginning his own computer business in Fairfield Center “Turbo Electronics” which was hugely successful for over a decade. His interests shifted toward networking, and he would spend days on the road doing computer and networking jobs all over the state of Maine and was very successful with some very big accounts. As the years passed Norm decided that concrete work was going to be the big ticket, so he started up a concrete business that was very successful for years and worked on some huge projects throughout the state of Maine including the Walmart structure in Waterville. Never satisfied and still looking for his pinnacle CEO he turned his attention to building a hugely successful roofing business “Arctic Roofing” which was based out of Lewiston Maine. The only gig that would have earned Norm more miles in his vehicles would have been as a long-haul trucker as he was always on the go from one end of the state to the other. In 2022, Norm sold off Arctic Roofing due to difficulties associated with finding qualified and trusted employees. During the last few months of his life, Norm struggled to make ends meet by driving Uber in Lewiston while family and friends noticed his slow physical and mental deterioration which led Norm into a dark, depressed, and lonely state. It was not due to a lack of love, support, or offers of help from family and friends. He is deeply missed.\nIn lieu of flowers or cards of condolences, the family asks that you hug your loved ones a little closer and focus on what is important in life. It goes too fast.
