Norman "Norm" Dam

February 17, 1927 — August 29, 2022

Greenville, SC.

Norman “Norm” John Dam passed away on August 29th at the age of 95.  He was the youngest child of Carl John Dam and Hazel Teachout Dam of Richland, Washington.  During his final months of high school, Norm enlisted in the Navy and served from February 28th, 1945 to October 8th, 1946.  He began his career with General Electric after graduating with an electrical engineering degree from Washington State University.  Norm and his wife Ina raised six children in Burnt Hills, New York where he served as a deacon at Burnt Hills Methodist Church.  They moved to Hendersonville,TN in 1968 to oversee the building of a GE manufacturing plant.  After Ina’s passing and his retirement from GE after 43 years of service, Norm married Mary Rankin and moved to Greenville, SC where they raised their two sons.

Norm loved many activities including woodworking, baking homemade bread, and spoiling his pets, but the one activity he loved the most was being a father to his children.
Norman Dam is survived by his wife, Mary Rankin, and seven children, Paula Young, Brian Dam, Norma Dam, Barbara Panebianco, Kris Marshall, Rankin Dam, John Dam, thirteen grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. Norman was preceded in death by his sisters, Margaret McCammish and Jerry Peebles as well as wife Ina Dam and son Eric Dam.
