Sertoman of the Day:    Norm “Sheet Rock” Schillo returned again to the podium to tell his story and how it began.  His ethnic background is German.  Almost every male on his family tree earned his living as a carpenter.  Norm’s father became the superintendent of specialized housing construction.

Norm Schillo, born 10 Sep, 1927  (he will be 91 next month) and raised in north Denver (and proud of it).  He is proud to now be an octogenarian.  He attended public school in north Denver.  Of the 5 elementary schools, 2 have been demolished.  He went to Skinner Jr. High and North High.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, the same day he graduated from high school, for WWII.  The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound.  He messed around for a couple years after the Navy.  His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade.  He went into bricklaying.  He started his own company after 7 years.  He ran that business for 13 years.  Then had a marina in Granby for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years.  He eventually got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired.  Norm worked with Mike Magee and Will Martinez when he was learning what manual labor means.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou.  He met his second wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997.  From that marriage he inherited several more family members.  He was married to Ann for 15 years; she passed away not too long ago.

Norm had 3 daughters but one has passed away, 5 g-kids and 11 gg-kids on his side.   Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids & 1 great grandchild.     Bill Anderson brought him into the club.  Listen to Norm Schillo.mp3
