Norman Scherr, of Baltimore, MD, passed away on Friday, December 25th, 2020 at the age of 81. He is survived by his beloved wife of 56 years, Sondra Scherr (nee Baer); children, Dana (George) Wachter and David (Debbie) Scherr; grandchildren, Emily, Abigail, Isabel, and Olivia Wachter, Max and Owen Scherr; and sister-in-law, Allene Scherr. He was predeceased by his dear brother, Daniel Scherr; and parents, Edith and Solomon Scherr.

Mr. Scherr grew up in East Baltimore and attended City College. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy and in the Naval Reserve for six years. He and Sandee were introduced by a friend and got married in 1964. While he got great pleasure from meeting and talking to people during his career in tire sales and as his time as owner of Stormin' Norman Tire and Auto Center, the most important thing to him was his family, and his incredible friends who were like a great extended family. His dear friends who supported Stormin' Norman's for so many years ensured that he was known all around town as Stormin' Norman. Mr. Scherr will be remembered for his support of the greater Baltimore City community. His kindness and his willingness to do anything for anyone will not be forgotten.

Services are private. Please omit flowers. Contributions in his memory may be sent to Shaarei Tfiloh Congregation, 2001 Liberty Heights Ave., Baltimore, MD 21217 or the American Cancer Society, 405 Williams Court, Suite 120, Baltimore, MD 21220.

Norman was a character. I mean that in the nicest way. He truly loved his family and would do anything for them. He was a gentle giant. He had a heart of gold. On the Blitz side of the family he was the oldest cousin and each of us liked him very much. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.

Shaarei Tfiloh Congregation deeply regrets the passing of our long time member Norman Scherr, of blessed memory. Stormin' Norman was well beloved by our Synagogue. The High Holidays will not be the same without him! He loved his family, Judaism and country. Norman did countless acts of chessed (kindness) on a daily basis. What a man!

Very sorry to read this notice. I used to fill the cigarette machine and stock the coffee at Stormin' Normans. Over the few years of working across the street for Bernie's Vending, I found myself at Stormin' Norman's almost daily or at the end of my shift to hang out. Norman always took a few moments to talk with me, but more importantly, give me that wink of his eye to let me know he was always plugged in with what was going on. I enjoyed spending a few minutes there, watching him haggle, complain and then thank the customer for their business and once they would leave, he would often turn to me and say something to the effect, they were friends for many many years. He had a real sense of caring, understanding and knowing the people around him. I enjoyed his company and respected him and the business he ran. Again, I'm sorry to read this notice, send my condolences to David, the family and friends and know he will reset in peace. Norman, thank you for being friend and thank you for being the nice man that I always remembered. G-d bless you and your family.

I met Norman in 1980 at the JCC Park Heights. We jogged together up and down Park Heights for some time. He was always fun to be with. In the following years when we met at the bank, McDonald’s or wherever we always had a very pleasant meeting. I was very saddened to hear of his passing. My sympathy to the family.

Stormin Norman was truly a unique personality, with the ability to connect with anyone because he was genuine and enthusiastic, with a sense of humor that was hilarious. I knew him from playing racquetball with him at the J and buying tires at his business. His reaction on the court, when his shots went awry were as funny as any standup comic. But, he also exhibited a true warmth in the times talking about friends and family. He was a big man with a presence to match. I want to express my condolences to his entire family and pray that the many loving memories of his life will bring comfort in this difficult time.


Posted at 10:39am
Sandy, Dana, David and family-
We truly lost a dear friend who will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. He fought valiantly through many difficult days of medical treatment, but whenever we spoke to him he was still the "true Norman" as we discussed our families, our friendship, recreation activities and happy times together. He was so proud of his loving and caring family. May all your pleasant memories provide comfort in the days ahead.

Dear Sandee, David and Dana, so saddened to hear of Norman’s passing. We all grew up together, went to school together and loved going to Stormin Normans! He was one of a kind. Loved his family and grandkids. Always flashing pictures. Always ending a visit with “luv u babe”. Norman will be sorely missed. He was one in a generation!!! May he forever Rest In Peace and May you all hold him dearly in your hearts.

It was such great fun to be with Norman. Be it our Tuesday night Dinners or our excursions to the Sugar House Casino or Atlantic City, he was a blast to be with. Whenever we were at a local restaurant, so many people would stop bye at our table to say hello to Norman. Friends, Relatives, his customers, everyone loved Norman. We would all tease Norman when at times he would overly complain about the food he ordered, something not prepared just as he wanted. But one thing Norman never complained about, and only raved about, was his Family. He loved and cared so much for his wife and kids, but his love for his Grandkids was extraordinary. Norman was the definition of a doting Grandfather.

Norman- you battled your illnesses hard my friend, and you taught all of us to be successful in life—love your Country, Family, Friends, Co-workers and Customers. You will be missed.

Sonci? Sonsi? Soncee? (I always said it. Never had a need to spell it before. Was an adult before I found out that it wasn't your actual name!) ...

1964, the year you were married, was the year of my Bar Mitzvah. Thinking (way) back over the decades, it's just not possible to have a memory of Norman that doesn't elicit a smile. He wasn't meek or timid, that's for sure. He was brash and loud...but always in a jovial way. When you were in his company you simply couldn't help but feel happy!

He had a bold personality, but I think he was a definitely softy inside. He had a big heart. And, even though that fact may have embarrassed him a bit, his warmth showed. Norman will always be remembered by all who knew him as a really good guy.

Marlene and I have you, my 2nd cuz "D's" and your whole beautiful family deep in our thoughts.

The era of "Stormin Norman" may be over; but the memory will live on forever through his beloved family and many friends. He was a good person who's family serves as a legacy of his commitment to those he cared about. We always enjoyed being in his company and laughing at his humor. I remember Irv Hamet and Eddie Galonoy, both of blessed memory, talking about Saturday morning and donuts at Stormin Norman's. May his memory always be for a blessing. May his family always remember his love and devotion.
