Norm's Nickname

While Ray was getting ready for his trip to San Jose for Norm's Memorial Dinner, he was talking with his brothers about "Norm Stories".  Norm was named after Sid's beloved brother, Norman.  Norman had died just five years before Norm was born.  Norman was just 18 years old when he died.  Sid always called Norm "Buster".  I surmise that it was still too painful for Sid to call him Norman.    Buster had become popularized around the time of Norm's birth due to the Silent Film Star, Buster Keaton. 
Film Released the year of Norm's birthday (1925)
