Obituary of Norman Thomas Maguire
Norman T. Maguire answered his last call, going to the big firehouse in the sky, on November 17, 2018 in Hackettstown.
Born and raised in Orange, Norman was an Army Veteran, serving in Korea.
He was an East Orange Fireman for 32 years, retiring as Captain. An avid golfer, Norman co-founded the Electric Caddy Company, bringing electric golf carts to private clubs and businesses in the area. Upon retiring, he worked for 10 years at Warnock Automotive.
Norman had a love for music particularly big band, swing and Broadway show tunes. He would often sing aloud with a smile. His passion for old movies showed as well.
