Norman C. Halley, age 74, of Winthrop, NY passed away at UVMC in Burlington, VT on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, surrounded by the love of his family. Arrangements are entrusted to the Hammill Funeral Home in Winthrop.
Norman was born on January 11, 1949 in Malone, NY, the son of the late Florence (Coughlin) Abrams and Charles Halley.
He graduated from Franklin Academy in Malone in 1967. Continuing his education, he attended SUNY Brockport and obtained his Bachelor of Science degree. Norman married Ann F. Carbino on August 3, 1968 at Nortre Dame Church in Malone with Father Pease presiding.
Norman and Ann would build their own home in Winthrop and reside there together for nearly 50 years. Norman was a teacher at Massena Central School District for 34 years. He and his wife also owned and operated several businesses in Malone.
Norman loved high school athletics and lettered in three sports at Franklin Academy. He was inducted into the FA Hall of Fame in 2017, and holds records for throwing the shot put that still stand today. He continued his athletic career into college, and later could be found at any gym or field that his children or grandchildren were playing at.
Norman's family was his greatest accomplishment. He and the love of his life, Ann, raised four girls that he absolutely adored. His grandchildren were his world and he treasured every moment with them and believed they each hung the moon.
