Norman Edward Hoeppner

Norman “Norm” Edward Hoeppner, age 65, received his eternal reward on Tuesday July 12th, 2022, surrounded by loved ones.  Norm was born on November 20th, 1956, in Fort Wayne, IN to Virgil and Alice (Oberlin) Hoeppner.  Norm attended Woodlan High School where he enjoyed all sports especially baseball playing shortstop.  He had various jobs throughout his career, including International Harvester, cutting and delivering firewood, Eagle Picher, Sheller Globe, United Technologies, Lear & Sauder Woodworking.  Norm started his career at International Harvester, which is where he met his wife, Jan.  Norm and Jan married November 4th, 1978.  Norm was full of life, ambitious, and a devoted and faithful husband.  Norm was also an avid hunter.  

Norm and Jan were blessed with three children: Justin (Amanda) Hoeppner, Jessica (Carl) Schroeder, Sally (Jared) Strautman.  Norm was also blessed with his father-in-law Norm Bellinger and four siblings: Sue (John) Ehle, Bob (Nancy) Hoeppner, Dick (Naomi) Hoeppner, and Brian (Karen) Hoeppner.  Norm was an avid member of several churches over his years but most recently a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Woodburn, IN.  Norm was always present and full of love and laughter.  At all times spreading his love for Christ and serving the Lord.  He would do anything for anyone, constantly lending a hand.  Up until his last day, he would ask “How can I help?”.  The greatest gift he gave was teaching others about Jesus. 

In addition to being blessed with his three children, Norm was a devoted grandfather to his eight grandchildren: Luke, Jack, Bailey, Faith, Max, Colten, Simon and Eva.   

Norm was preceded in death by his father and mother, Virgil and Alice Hoeppner and his mother-in-law Arlene Bellinger.
