June 5, 1919 - Feb. 29, 2000
Norman W. WALTERS, 80, formerly of 1701 Madison St., died at ExtendaCare at 5 a.m. today.
Born June , 1919, in Indianapolis, to Alvah A. and Lenna E. WILSON WALTERS, he married Lydia ANDRADE on April 9, 1955 in Rochester. She survives, at ExtendaCare.
Walters, born with cerebral palsy, started his business career in 1934, at the age of 13, when Kiwanis Club members convinced Rochester businesses to donate merchandise for him to sell. Within two days he had earned enough to purchase a tricycle and began selling caramel corn door-to-door. He opened Norman's Tiny Shop at Seventh and Main Streets and sold ice cream and sundries. With a specially built motor scooter he sold ice cream products throughout town, eventually opening Norman's Catering Service. In 1970 he and Lydia, also handicapped, opened Nor-Wal Sales in their home, selling Bibles, book marks and other religious items until their retirement.
He was a member of Grace United Methodist Church, the Rochester and Lake Manitou Chamber of Commerce, the Lions Club and the Rochester I.O.O.F. Lodge.
Surviving with his wife are several cousins.
