Norman was born on Jan. 29, 1937 in Cut Bank to Donald and Eva (DeZort) Fugle. He grew up on the family farm North of Cut Bank which brought him to love the farm life. Norman attended the Meadowlark School until the eighth grade. He finished high school at Cut Bank High School graduating in 1955. Norman worked various jobs as a teenager along with helping on the family farm. He later farmed his own ground which included haying, one of his favorite times of the year.

Norman was drafted into the Army in July of 1961 and was stationed in Fort Riley, Kan. He was honorably discharged in April of 1963 and returned to Cut Bank to live. He worked for several oilfield business companies before starting his own successful business, Norman Fugle Welding Oilfield Construction LLC, that is currently still in operation. Norman loved his farming and cutting hayfield, his numerous animals, shooting gophers, and most of all, driving around in his pickup to pass the time by.
He leaves behind a very special friend, Terri Hillius, whom he loved dearly and talked of her often. He loved his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, family, and friends and wanted them all to know that he will miss them.
