FLUET PASSES AWAY IN NORTH CAROLINA


ABERDEEN, NC -- April 25, 2015 -- It is with great sadness that the family of Normand Richard (Norm) Fluet Sr., 59, of Aberdeen, announces his peaceful passing on Friday, April 24, 2015. Norm died in his home and surrounded by family while fighting a terminal illness.

Norm was born in Sherbrooke, Canada on April 14, 1956, to Yolande Perreault of Boucherville, Canada and Jean-Noel Fluet (deceased). He has lived and raised his family in the States for the past 45 years.

Norm loved and adored his family and leaves behind his beloved wife of 30 years, Lori Ann (Finch) Fluet of Aberdeen. In addition to his wife, Norm is survived by his six children, Normand Fluet Jr. of Oakfield NY, Phillip Fluet and his fiance, Abbey Westbrook, of Saratoga NY, Alan Fluet of Burlington NJ, Julie (Fluet) Kukenberger and her husband, Michael of Portsmouth NH, Shane Fluet of Pinehurst NC and Kasey Fluet of Aberdeen NC.

In addition, his loving mother, Yolande Perreault, survives Norm. Also among his survivors are his 6 grandchildren; Kalie, Chantelle, Lily, Jamison, Ava, and Sophie; brother Serge Fluet of Canada; father and mother in law, Andrew and Gloria Finch of Aberdeen NC and several nieces and nephews.

Norm discovered his passion for the horses at an early age through his father who enjoyed standardbred horse racing. His love for standardbreds found him establishing his own stable where he trained, drove and owned many horses over the years. Norm had a natural gift when working with trotters and breaking babies in preparation for handling and racing. In 2007 Norm stopped driving as he passed the reins to his son, Phillip, who was beginning his career in the business.

Norm, Phillip, and Lori worked closely together preparing yearlings down south and racing them in the northeast. Although horse racing is competitive, many who knew Norm would agree that he was always willing to give a helping hand to his opponents. He was a devoted horseman known for his honesty, integrity and consideration of others.

Norm was a proud member of the United States Trotting Association (USTA); The Southern Tier Harness Horsemenís Association (STHHA); The Western New York Harness Horsemenís Association (WNYHHA); The Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association (SBOA) of New Jersey; The Standardbred Owners Association (SOA) of New York and The Pennsylvania Harness Association (PHA).

Per his wishes cremation will take place on Monday, April 27, 2015 in North Carolina followed by a mid June memorial service in Batavia, New York where family and friends will gather to celebrate Normís life. Any and all who knew Norm will miss him dearly and forever keep him in their hearts.
