Meet Norm Ringler, Melody Living’s assisted living featured resident of May at our Lake in the Hills retirement community! We love getting to know each of our residents here at Melody Living Lake in the Hills and can’t wait for you to meet Norm!
Norm was born in Germany on a U.S. Army base near Berlin. After living in Germany for a short time, his family moved to West Virginia when his father’s enlistment ended with the Army.
After one year in West Virginia, they relocated to Hammond, Indiana to be closer to his aunt Helen on his father’s side.
It was very important to Norm’s mother to live near a big city as she was accustomed to in Germany while growing up. Norm speaks German and would love to learn more of the language. He states his special talent is designing industrial labeling systems.
Norm owned his own business; his company was named FastTrakTechnologies Inc., which sold industrial electrical engineering software, labeling equipment, and labels.
Norm was in business for 25 years. With his business doing well, he had clients all over the United States, except Hawaii, and he even traveled to Australia to complete a project utilizing his software.
Norm’s favorite hobbies are riding his motorcycle, taking road trips, and going fishing.
He loves to take walks and sit outdoors when the weather is nice. Norm’s favorite holiday is Christmas, he enjoys celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ first and foremost.
He loves to give and receive presents from friends and family! Norm says his greatest accomplishment is being the father of two wonderful sons who he raised to be strong, caring young men. He also enjoys all the varieties of holiday foods served during Christmas.
Norm is a veteran of the United States Air Force. His favorite place to visit is Canada because of their awesome fishing locations. Norm states, “It’s a beautiful country with a lot of unexplored wildernesses to see.” His dream destination, though, is to visit Hawaii.
Norm loves helping other residents when needed and making positive suggestions to staff. Norm loves the food from our in-house gourmet chef and says the friends he’s made in his new home are great.
He enjoys the quality of service he receives from staff, from getting his apartment cleaned weekly, to the laundry being done nicely and put away for him (which he says is a huge plus for him) the staff are always kind and caring.
Norm’s advice to others is “To always get a second opinion with doctors, investments, retirement, and pizza”.
