Norman Hazen Schiffman

July 31, 1933 — January 28, 2024

Washington, Utah

Norman H. Schiffman, 90, of Washington, Utah, died January 28, 2024, at Southern Utah Veterans Home due to natural causes.

He was born July 31, 1933 to Melvin Owen Schiffman and Gladys Allsop in Smithfield, Utah.
He grew up, mostly in the Smithfield and Logan area. The family moved for a time to Mesa, Arizona, where he went to high school.

He joined the Marine Corps when he was 17 years old and served during the Korean War. He proudly served as a marine, and was honorably discharged.

On August 13, 1955 he married Carol Kinnear. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Norm and Carol were the parents of six children, three sons and three daughters. He was always up for an adventure, trips to Disneyland, drives up to Jackson Hole, and Yellowstone are some of our favorite memories. Summers were spent boating with trips to Lake Powell. Recently trips up through Zion were his favorite.

He was a faithful member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served in many callings, but one of his favorite was serving as a Stake Missionary with his wife, Carol as his companion.

He was employed in the trucking industry for much of his career. He finished his career with Idaho National Laboratories in Idaho Falls, Idaho. His career took him and his family from Utah to Idaho to the mountains of Colorado then back to Idaho, where he retired. He was instrumental in computerizing the trucking industry.

When Carol passed away in 2001, Norm, reconnected with an old high school friend, Beverley Cooper. They were married March 19, 2002 in Idaho Falls, Idaho. For 18 years, they had a wonderful life in Washington, Utah. They were active members of the Washington Fields 6th ward. Beverley passed away August, 2020.

Norm kept himself busy with his many hobbies and talents. He was an amazing artist, and a master craftsman of custom rifles and knives. He was a jack of all trades and a master of all. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do and he did everything exceptionally well. He was 100% self taught and shared his talents with everyone around him. He is survived by his children, Mike, Curt (Cheryl), Matt (Laura), Christy Baird (Mark), Carol Ann Ryan (Cameron). His sister Letha Sue Clay, Brother Mel Schiffman. And many nieces and nephews, who adored him.

He is proceeded in death by his parents, both wives, daughter Lorie, daughter-in-law Leslie and grandson Matthew Schiffman.
