Obituary for Norman Whitehead
Norman Whitehead a/k/a “Stormin’ Norman” “Poopie” and “Pop” was born in UnionTown, Alabama on December 18, 1934 to Emma Freeman-Whitehead and Henry Whitehead. Norman passed away on April 16, 2020 at Orange Regional Hospital. Norman spent his childhood in Alabama with his mother, father, and 8 siblings. Norman took pride when talking about his three sisters who pursued careers in education. At a young age, Norman often left home to work for the circus to help support his family. He later moved to Monticello, New York where he met Audrey, the woman he loved and called his “madam”. They truly became more than a couple…. They had a knack for businesses and became a team! They owned several buildings throughout Harlem in the 70’s where they opened the first 24-hour convenience store Rock Bottom Discount Harlem had seen. They later opened a family storage and moving business K & K.

All the while his kids worked alongside him. No doubt that whatever business they opened was a success. He was gifted with his hands and built the storage facility from the bottom up. He had a love for money and plenty of it ! Money was his motivation. Norman had a street smart and hustler mentality. He was always moving around. Anyone who knew him knew that he spent most of his time gambling at the Racetrack, betting at OTB, and playing the lottery. Norman had a love for Cadillacs and nice cars.

Nine years ago, he moved to Middletown to live with his daughter and grandkids. He enjoyed listening to music, family functions, and working on house projects. Norman had a love for people and was good-hearted which attracted many friends along the way. He had an unbelievable way of story-telling about his life ventures that would captivate anybody. There is comfort knowing that Norman lived a good life and did not miss out on anything.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his daughters; Norma Whitehead, Kimberly Johnson, and Kelly Whitehead his sons; Shedret Whitehead, Donald Bennett, Kenny Williams, Norman Whitehead Jr., and Norman Whitehead III.

Siblings; Gerald Whitehead, Dave Whitehead, Wilbert Whitehead, Precilla Mason, and Bessie Martin

A host of grandkids, great-grands, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, and friends

Norman was preceded by: his “madam” Audrey Whitehead, son Keith Whitehead
sister Martha, brothers Jimmy, and Henry Whitehead

Cremation was private at the convenience of the family. “Celebration of Life” services to be announced.
