Gifts & Memorial Donations

Clarence Norman Engel, 88, died peacefully in his Williamsburg, Virginia home on August 17, 2015. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on May 27, 1927.

Norman was married to the love of his life, Genevieve L. Engel, for 60 years at the time of her death in Oct 2010.  Affectionately known as “Pop-Pop” by his grandchildren and great-grandchild, he was a family man above all else.  He lived a life of service and was happiest when in the position to help others.  Retired as a Chief Petty Officer in 1970, after 28 years in the Navy, he proudly served on all seven continents of the world.  He also worked for James City County, retiring in 2002 with 20 years of service.  He will be fondly remembered for his generous nature, big heart, and adventurous spirit.

Mr. Engel is survived by his eldest daughter, Christina Engel Gallagher and her husband, Kevin; his youngest daughter, Luann Engel Gunnell; his son-in-law, Jim Gunnell; his granddaughter, Jennifer Coultas and her husband Bryan; his granddaughter, Amanda McLernon and her husband, Zack; his grandson, James Gunnell; and his great-granddaughter, Arya McLernon who always brought light to his eyes and a smile to his face.
The family would like to give special thanks to Sharon Haislip, the long-time caregiver to Norman.
