Norman Theodore Jarog was born May 7, 1941, in Chicago, Illinois. He served two tours in Vietnam as a decorated Airman in the United States Airforce. He was a proud supporter of the American Legion and Veteran Advocacy. Norman lived and served in Germany and England before returning home. As a jack of many trades, he found his passion as an entrepreneur as the founder of his own cleaning service company, working on both residential and commercial properties.
Norman was never happier than when he was giving to others, baking treats for everyone in the neighborhood, or helping someone in need. He and his wife were both animal lovers, supporting many local and national rescue organizations. He was an avid reader- reading a book every week! Although he never made it on Jeopardy, he won every home championship. In his spare time, Norman was an experienced gardener and cook and enjoyed travelling. He made a point of putting his feet in every ocean!
Norman was preceded in death by his loving and beautiful wife, Janean Ann Jarog, who passed away in January 2021, his sister Barbara Osterman, and his brother, Kenneth Jarog. He is survived by his brother, Warren Jarog (Illinois), and his sister, Diana Heffner (Wisconsin), and four stepdaughters and their families: Isabella Giovenazzo (California), and Debbie and Jon Caulfield, Liz and Adam Smith, Shoshana and Scotty Nash (Colorado), and their twelve children: Nicole Wilzoch, Lisa Smith, Jordan Hansen, Layton Caulfield, Alex Smith, Meg Caulfield, Micah Besaw, Brynn Caulfield, Zoe Nash, Simone Nash, Ezra Besaw, and Asher Smith.
Norman's burial will take place at Fort Logan National Cemetery on Friday, August 6th at 12:15pm. All are welcome.
