Memorable Manitobans: Norman A. Cuddy (1950-2016)

Lawyer.

Born at Carberry on 31 March 1950, son of Beryl Coutts and Thomas Colin Cuddy, he grew up primarily in the Fort Garry area of Winnipeg. He attended the University of Manitoba, receiving BA and Law (1974) degrees. He was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1975 and the British Columbia Bar in 2005.

He began his career as a criminal defense lawyer working with Manley Israel, but specialized in civil cases for the last few decades of his life. He is commonly remembered for representing Thomas Sophonow at his successful 1985 Manitoba Court of Appeal hearing after he was tried three times for the murder of Barbara Stoppel, and for representing the family of Corrine McKeown and Doreen Leclair who were murdered in 2000 by McKeown’s estranged husband after placing five 911 calls. He was an active partner at Tapper Cuddy LLP, a firm he helped to found, until 2014 when his struggle with brain cancer forced him to retire. Before retiring he also practiced for several years in British Columbia at Lawyers West. He was a Life Bencher for the Law Society of Manitoba.

He died at Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia on 6 June 2016.
