Norman “Norm” Bakeman
June 4, 1958 - January 8, 2024

Norman “Norm” Bakeman, 65 of Zephyrhills, passed away on Monday, January 8, 2024 26 hours after his mother, Catherine Bakeman passed. Norm was born in Endicott, New York and moved to Florida in 2007 from North Carolina. He was a heavy equipment mechanic and also drove a truck for Shannon’s Produce. Norm enjoyed working on other people’s cars, enjoyed gardening and could fix anything.

He is survived by his loving father, Lester Bakeman; his brother and sister-in-law, Gerald and Marsha Bakeman and his sister and brother-in-law, Lucille “Lucy” and Mark Barnes. Also surviving are his nieces and nephews, Glen (Chesley) Rollins, James (Barbara) Rollins, Jeremy (Jenny) Bakeman, Amber Bakeman and several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Norman was a man of selflessness; he would drop what he was doing to help anyone. He would give you the shirt off his back. Run into a problem? Call Norm. He was dependable and compassionate. Norm was a true neighbor, helping anyone in the neighborhood running into trials or errors, he was there to offer a helping hand. He is the definition of what we should all look to be. His smile would light up a room and instantly get you out of the bad mood you were in, and his laugh was contagious.

He was predeceased by his beloved mother on January 7, 2024, 26 hours prior to his own passing.

At this time, private services will be held.

    Norman was a man of selflessness; he would drop what he was doing to help my mother and myself. He would give you the shirt off his back. Run into a problem? Call Norm. He was dependable and compassionate. Norman was more of a father figure to me than my own true blood father. He gave me advice, compliments, and praise on my motherly skills of raising my daughter. Norm was a true neighbor. Anyone in the neighborhood running into trials or errors, he was there to offer a helping hand. He is the definition of what we should all look to be. His smile would light up a room and instantly get you out of the bad mood you were in, and his laugh was contagious. He is my role model & He has forever impacted my life.

    My thoughts, and prayers go out to Norman’s family. He was unlike anyone I’ve ever met. A beautiful soul, wonderful personality, funny, happy, and helpful. He was a wonderful, loving Step-father. We shared a love that’s irreplaceable. He will always be in my heart,and never,ever forgotten.
