Guyana Chronicle article.

TORONTO – Special tributes were paid to the late Guyanese Norman Sue when the Ontario Softball Cricket League (OSCL) staged its 18th annual presentation dinner and dance at the Easton Banquet Hall in Scarborough, Toronto on Saturday November 2 last.

The late stalwart and prominent businessman, who was the founder and owner of Norman Sue Bakery situated in Scarborough, Toronto, passed away on October 7 last.

According to OSCL president Albert Ramcharran, the late Sue played an integral part in the sponsorship of competitions run by the organisation and was also a shining example in the Guyanese community as a whole.

And In recognition of Sue’s contribution to the sport, Ramcharran took the opportunity to hand over a plaque to his wife Lynette.

Sue’s daughter Kim, who is also the treasurer of the OSCL, was also loud in praise of her late father’s role in the Toronto community and expressed sincere thanks to the OSCL for the tremendous support in his passing.

Kim, who is also treasurer of the OSCL, reminded the gathering of her father’s strong support of the Guyanese culture, pointing out that he was an icon and a pioneer in that respect.

She also alluded to the fact that he gave selflessly, not only financially but through his kind deeds.

The late Sue, who died at the age 66 after a prolonged illness, migrated to Canada in 1971 after living in Georgetown and later Linden, Upper Demerara.
