Norman Duvall

A celebration of the life of Norman Lee Duvall will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, at Harry's Hoffbrau in Redwood City. Mr. Duvall, a resident of Menlo Park for 43 years, died Dec. 24 in San Diego, following a brief illness. He was 78.

Mr. Duvall was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan. A ROTC graduate of Michigan State University, he served in the U.S. Army with the rank of First Lieutenant.

Mr. Duvall had a long and successful career as an executive at Potlatch Corporation. He was an avid golfer, World War II film buff, and master of the daily crossword puzzle, say family members. He enjoyed fishing, watching football and baseball, and a good laugh, they say.

"He was an 'old school' guy," says his son, Farley Duvall, "who taught my brother and me right from wrong, to look a person in the eye, to have a firm handshake, and so much more."

Survivors include his wife of 47 years, Eileen Ann Duvall; sons Farley Cash Duvall and Derek Norman Duvall; and two grandchildren.
