Norman (Stormin) Buhrandt, 68, of Suring, passed away on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at St. Vincent Hospital. Norman was born on Nov. 20, 1949, in Oconto Falls to Ernst and Lydia (Pfeiffer) Buhrandt. He graduated from Suring High School in 1968. On Aug. 30, 1975, he married Paula Frank. After high school, he stayed right on the farm where he lived his whole life. He farmed until March 1996 when the cows were sold. After selling the cows, he was employed at Suring Milling Co. until his retirement. He enjoyed shaking dice with the grandkids, watering Hoss’s steers, bowling, yelling at the TV when the Brewers lost, socializing and making people laugh with his inappropriate jokes and his witty one-liner comebacks.

Norman is survived by his wife of 42 years, Paula, and their three sons, Paul (Hoss) Buhrandt and his significant other Angela Roberts and their daughter Peyton, Kurt Buhrandt and his wife JoAnna (Beschta) Buhrandt and their daughter Sage and their son Max, Mark Buhrandt and his wife Sarah (Reint) Buhrandt and their daughters Zoey and Frankie of Faribault, Minn.; brothers, Wallace (Genny) Buhrandt, August (Joy) Buhrandt, Ray (Shirley) Buhrandt; sisters, Alice (Edgar) Jaeger, Pat (Howard) Jossie, Carol Thompson, Nancy (Jim) Jossie; sisters-in-law, Judy Buhrandt and Darlene Buhrandt of Suring. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; four brothers, Gordon, Alvin, Lawrence, and Donny; and three sisters, Mary, Margie, and Doris.
