Norman was born on September 7, 1937 in Milwaukee, the son of Louis and Frances (Gavinski) Kostroski.  In the early 1950’s, Norm’s father purchased a gas station in Rome and called it Louie’s Enco and the family moved to area.  Norm was a 1955 graduate of Jefferson High School and soon after, served his country in the US Navy.  On June 25, 1960, he married Shirley Stevens at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sullivan and the couple had 4 children.  Norm worked in manufacturing most of his working years and was a supervisor.  Norm loved to fish and was an avid and excellent bowler.  He served the City of Jefferson as an Alderman in the 1980’s.  He enjoyed gambling at casinos and taking trips to Las Vegas with his wife.  Norman had a quick wit and called himself frugal…his family called him something else.  He was a serious NASCAR fan and followed all Wisconsin sports teams.  Norm adored his family and he will be deeply missed.
