Norman D. Nuttall was born September 7, 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Quentin Glen and Ida Corbett Nuttall. He passed away peacefully at home on September 16, 2013 surrounded by his family.
Norm spent his childhood in Logan, Utah where he developed a great love for the outdoors. In 1951, he graduated from Logan High School where he participated in football and tennis. He graduated from Utah State University in 1955. While at Utah State he affiliated with Sigma Nu Fraternity, was on the ski team and the tennis team. Following graduation, he married Sandra ‘Sally’ Anderson in Ogden, Utah on June 6, 1955. He then served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army as a missile specialist stationed in San Francisco, California. At the very end of his military service his daughter Tracy was born, followed by a son, Scott, and a daughter, Lezlie.
Norm’s early career was shaped by his employment with the Singer Sewing Machine Company where he learned everything necessary for him to start his own sewing machine business. As an entrepreneur at heart, Norm started Nuttall Sewing Center in 1968 selling Bernina sewing machines. Through his strong work ethic, optimism and good fortune, Nuttall Sewing Center became the largest Bernina Dealer in the world.
Norm always had a passion to be the best at everything he did and he usually succeeded. He loved skiing, sailboat racing on Sally 2, riding his Missouri Fox Trotters, hunting, and in his later years, golfing. He was the greatest grandpa and dad. He always had a fun adventure for his family whether it was skiing, sailing, golfing or horseback riding. He and Sal spent winters in Mesquite, Nevada for the last ten years where he made lifelong friends.
Norm is survived by his wife of 58 years, Sandra, whom he affectionately called ‘Sally San’, his three children, Tracy Velasquez (Enrique), Scott Nuttall (Marsha) and Lezlie Paterson (Robert), ten grandchildren and two step-grandchildren; Mark, Max, Andra, Aubree, Alex, Quinten, Jake, Jasmine, Blake, Holly, Carlos and Victoria, and three great-grandsons; Luke, Emerson and Brody, his sister Anna Lue Williams and his brother Frank Q. Nuttall. He was preceded in death by his parents.
