Norman Hilger was born on December 23, 1944 at David City Hospital to Leonard and Lois (Martin) Hilger. He graduated from high school in 1964. He then attended SCC Milford from 1964 until 1966 in Diesel Mechanics. On July 23, 1966, he was united in marriage to the love of his life, Sharon A. Juranek from Linwood. Two children were born to this union.

Norman worked at Flynn & Larson in Fremont by day and farmed with his father-in-law Albin Juranek at night. In 1972, he formed a partnership with his brothers, The Hilger Brothers, where he maintained the farm equipment & commercial semi trucks. In 1994, his first grandchild was born and a simple farmer/mechanic/truck driver became "Popo", a driver, babysitter, educator and road warrior all in one. Norm worked as "Popo" from 1994 through his 3rd grandchild in 2002.

"Popo" was the perfect candidate to become a school bus driver. He drove and helped maintain the buses until 2018.
