It is with sadness we mark the passing of GGHG WW II Veteran and Retired Superintendent, Durham Regional Police Service, John Norman (Norm) Smyth, at St. Joseph’s at Fleming L.T.C., Peterborough on Friday, July 1, 2011, in his 91st year.

Norm served overseas in World War II with the Royal Canadian Navy and was a former member of Branch 43, Royal Canadian Legion in Oshawa. He became a member of The Governor General’s Horse Guards in 1940. Following the war, he started his policing career with the Oshawa Police Force and retired as a Superintendent with Durham Regional Police Service.
