Default "Stormin' Norman" Wines Passes Away

I don't know the circumstances of his passing, but he was a gentle soul to all who knew him. Hell of a barbox player. He won the Super Billiards Expo a couple years in a row. Broke like a cannon.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise funds for his cremation. https://www.gofundme.com/norman-porky-eugene-wines

May he rest in eternal peace!

Thank you, Billy, for contributing, so that Norman won't be buried in Potter's Field. He's one of our own, and it breaks my heart to see him alone in his time of need. Bless you always, Billy, and to anyone else who can find it in their heart, who can afford it financially, to donate even $5 to his burial fund.

Here's a cute photo of Keith and Nrman Wines taken, I think, at Glass City Open or Super Billiards Expo in 2003.

I've played Porky a few times. RIP. He also played real well on a big table

Tony Chonan donated to give Stormin' Norm a proper burial. Nice to see the pool community coming together in this poor soul's time of need.

I read on AzB that Norman suffered from diabetes and went into a coma, became brain-dead. So sad.
