Norman H. Treadwell Obituary

Norman Harold Treadwell, 86, of Middlefield, OH, passed away peacefully early Wednesday morning, March 6th, 2024 at the David Simpson Hospice House in Cleveland, Ohio. He was born in Lansing, MI on May 22nd, 1937 to the late Norman and Martha (Johnson) Treadwell. Norman later married Dixie-Lee Adams on November 5, 2016.  

He enjoyed doing a lot of things over the years including being a semi-truck driver; hobby farmer, and being a flea market buyer and seller. Norman could also never pass up a garage sale.

He was an outstanding auto mechanic and loved working on his cars. In his younger years, if one of his engines failed, Norman would replace it the same day and be back “on the road” in no time.     

Norman loved spending the winter months in Florida during his senior years. In the summer, he liked camping in Ohio and Michigan.

He also liked tinkering in his garage and building bird houses or just spending time driving around in his “decked out” pick up.

Norman will be greatly missed by: his loving wife, Dixie-Lee (Wood) Adams-Treadwell, sons, Thad Treadwell of Florida, Lewis Treadwell of Michigan; daughters, Sylvia Treadwell and Debra Lockwood, both of Michigan; 11 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; brother, Buforth Treadwell; sister, Amelia Lockwood; step-children, Steven Adams, Gene (Ann) Adams, Rhonda Wynn, Paula (Brad) Baker, Scott (Kathy) Adams; and many friends.

He is preceded in death by: his first wife of 55 years, Karen (Keller) Treadwell, who died in May 2011; his parents; sons, Norm and Kade Treadwell; his beloved grandpa Johnson; and brother Ernie Treadwell.

Per Norman’s wishes, no local services are to be held. Norman will be laid to rest in Michigan with a graveside service at a later date.
