Norman E. Brubaker Jr.

Norman E. Brubaker Jr., longtime Pennsauken resident passed away peacefully on May 27, 2024, at the age of 79. Born on March 10, 1945, Norm's life was characterized by his loving nature, friendly demeanor, and selfless spirit. He was a devoted family man and a loyal friend.

Norm was preceded in death by his parents, Norman Sr. and Eleanor Brubaker, as well as his sister, Carol Ritting, and her husband, Rich. He leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories with his wife of over 52 years, Elaine Brubaker (nee Gioiella), his children, Kyle Brubaker and his wife Ali, and Corey Rodriguez and her husband Anthony. Norm's joy was multiplied by his grandchildren, Quinnan and Lyla Brubaker, Ruby, Louise, and Nellie Rodriguez, whose lives he enriched with his unwavering support and affection.

Norm is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Marion Tambone and her husband Steve, and Joan Dale and her husband Charles. His extended family, including many nieces, nephews, and friends, will fondly recall Norm's warm smile, his readiness to lend a helping hand, and his genuine interest in the well-being of others.

Norm's professional life was spent as an Administrative Clerk for PSE&G in Moorestown, where he was known for his diligent work ethic and amiable personality.

Outside of his professional life, Norm was an avid supporter of Philadelphia sports teams, a passion that he shared with his family and friends. His love for sports was paralleled by his dedication to caring for his lawn. Norm also found great pleasure in playing golf, a hobby that allowed him to enjoy the outdoors and the time off.

Perhaps most dear to Norm's heart was the time he spent with his beloved grandchildren. He was a constant presence at their events, cheering them on and celebrating their achievements. His grandchildren will remember him as a pillar of strength, love, and encouragement.
