October 24, 1948 - May 2, 2022
On May 2, 2022, Paul Dewey Nordman, of Indian Trail left his body full of pain and cancer behind and entered his glorified body when he was ushered into the presence of his Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Many may say he “lost his battle with cancer of 2.5 years”, his family would say, cancer was the vehicle to his journey home with his Lord and he is now truly cancer free. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8) for those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and Paul did. Paul was a generous, loyal, passionate, loud and devoted family man. In his final days, he reminisced about his Myers Park Mustang days, growing up in Myers Park, cruising in his buddy’s 1967 green Ford Mustang, his church families of United Faith Assembly of God (and Royal Ranger Commander days), and Christlife Church. Most cherish to him were his family memories. Paul Nordman comes from a large family of 14 children whose family attended St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Myers Park. He was the son of Richard Wilhelm Gustav Nordman, Sr. and Virginia Houlshouser Nordman. Paul was # 12 of 14 children. He is mourned and grieved by his surviving sisters, Shirley Nordman Hill, Jenny Nordman Lee, Rev.Frieda Nordman Porter, and Linda Nordman Smith. He was a much loved and dear brother to his sisters. When he married the love his life, he married into another large family of 12, and love his Kisiah family like his brothers and sisters, who were an amazing support to him and Sandra during his battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Sandra Kisiah Nordman, married at the ages of 17 and 19; they shared 54 years of marriage, married on December 23, 1967. Paul remembered how he met Sandra, cruising on East Independence Blvd. He said it was love at first sight; he had to meet that girl! They raised two children, Rev. Dr. Stephanie Nordman Holmes and David B. Nordman. One of his Royal Ranger kids and then fellow Ranger leader, became his son-in-law, Danny Holmes, who he and others remember Paul by his Ranger name “Loud Bear.” They are the proud grandparents of Sydney Holmes, Tyler Nordman, Erica Holmes, Sadie Nordman, Hope Nordman and grandkids-in-love Mychal de Wolfee and Savannah Harris. He is also mourned and survived by his black lab Rosco P. Coltrane who will miss his daily walks and homemade breakfast each morning from his best friend. Paul was the owner of PD Nordman Plumbing, INC, and his business and legacy will be passed on to his son, David Nordman, who worked together as partners and friends for nearly three decades. The biggest legacy Paul has left behind to his family is this legacy of faith. His oldest grandchild, Sydney, wrote on her Facebook post, “I love you Pawpaw! This isn’t goodbye, just ‘see ya later” until God calls us home too!” There will be a celebration and memorial service to celebrate the life of Paul later in the fall, date and times to be determined. He would want a final tribute to him to include that he loved the Lord with all his heart, soul, and mind and while he hoped and prayed for healing from the cancer, he knows the Lord works all things together for good for those who love him.
