Fetterley NormanFETTERLEY, Norman Guy McCalla  -  With great sadness we announce the death of Norman, in Ottawa on November 23, 2023, at the age of 74.


Loving husband of Elizabeth.


Beloved father of Jessica and Emily, and baby Amanda (deceased).


Son of the late Guy Hastings and Calla Fetterley (née McCalla).


Norman was a broadcaster and journalist.


His education began in Chippawa, Ontario (now part of Niagara Falls), continuing at Westlane Secondary School in Niagara Falls. Early on, he took part in many successful public speaking contests. October 17, 1967, saw Norman's first broadcast at CJRN Radio in Niagara Falls. A part-time job turned into a full-time job, and a year later, he switched to CKTB Radio in St. Catharines.


In 1972, he went to Thunder Bay, where a job in television beckoned at CHFD. In the next three years, he worked in Thunder Bay, Montreal (CFCF) and Toronto (CFTO). CFTO sent him to Ottawa as their Parliamentary Reporter. In 1983, he moved to CJOH TV in Ottawa in the same role until 1997.


There's no doubt that Norman loved his time on the Hill. He often said that was why he stayed in broadcasting. When he left, he was made a lifetime member of the Parliamentary Press Gallery.


He finished his career in local Ottawa news at CTV Ottawa. In October 2012, he marked forty-five years in broadcasting. Norman was always happy to help younger journalists with their work.


He retired in 2013. His passion was his books and the printed word.


His Funeral Service will be at Christ Church Cathedral, Sparks Street, Ottawa, on Saturday, December 2nd at 11:30 a.m
