Obituary of Norman Tietz: Norman Tietz has been handed the checkered flag and rode his final Victory Lap September 21, 2014, after a battle with cancer and other extensive health issues. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 25, at Faith Lutheran Church, with Rev. Jon Splichal-Larson officiating.

Norman was born November 26, 1932 to Reinhold and Josephine (Jocober) Tietz in Beulah, ND. The Tietz family relocated to New Leipzig, ND in 1950 where Norman graduated from High School. He was drafted into the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954 where he served in both Europe and England as a Morse Code Specialist with the 39th AAA Battalion. Norman moved to Bismarck in 1955 where he attended and graduated Bismarck Junior College in 1957.

He married Nyla Rivinius March 25, 1956. They had three children, Terry, Nancy, and Bradley. In late 1957, Norman began his career with Sioux Sporting Goods in Bismarck. While working at Sioux Sporting Goods, Norman saw an advertisement for a small Honda trail motorcycle in a sporting magazine. He believed this to be a marketable item for local hunting enthusiasts. Within 2 weeks of responding to the ad, Sioux Sporting Goods became the first North Dakota Honda Motorcycle Dealership. The flourishing sales under Norman’s watchful eye eventually gave birth to Sioux Cycle, where he was later assisted by the charms and savvy of his lovely wife Nyla for a successful 42 year run. Sioux Cycles eventually blossomed into North Dakota's largest motorcycle dealership.

Norman began racing go-carts. This newly acquired enthusiasm led to motorcycle racing and eventually on to racing snowmobiles, where he was a state champion in both sports. Norman also organized the North Dakota State Motorcycle Dealers Association where he served as president for 25 years.

Motorcycles and snowmobiles were a major part of his life, as was his passion for hunting and fishing. He could be found at Captain Kit's Marina most summer days prior to his retirement.

Norman is survived by his daughter Nancy Tietz Cerkoney, grandson Britton Cerkoney and Britton’s fiancée Stephanie Erickson.

Norman is preceded in death by his parents Reinold and Josie Tietz, sister Dorothy Kuehn, wife Nyla, and two sons Terry Tietz and Brad Tietz.
