To reborn as a gentle wind among the trees

“Suddenly left us, without saying goodbye,

Leaving emptiness and memories behind.”

Norbert moved to Scotland with his partner in 2008 inspired by the scenery seen in Braveheart. He has worked in various parts of the Highlands/West of Scotland including Grantown-on-Spey; Salen in Isle of Mull; Spittal of Glenshee; Tighnabruaich; Howwood and Inverness allowing him to see some of the most beautiful places in the area.

He was ever so proud of his son Oliver, who was born in 2014.

We hope his soul will find a refreshing peace amongst the flora and fauna of the Caledonian Forest, enjoying the plays of the red squirrels or the sight of the grouse.

From his family and friends

Your grove of trees
