Berner, Norman

Force: Air Force (R.C.A.F.)
While in the air force in WWII, a superior told Norman about his farm in Belloy AB, and Norman decided to move to the Peace River Country and bought farm equipment to break land. He persuaded his brother, Don, who also served in WW II to join him in Belloy. In 1948, Norman set up a blacksmith shop. He married Steffa Jakubowski from Wanham AB in 1952, and in 1954 he rejoined the air force. Eventually they settled in Rutland BC, where Norman had a fix-it shop which he enjoyed very much.
