Tributes have been pouring in to Watford “super fan” Kevin Norman after he was found dead in Venice.

Kevin Norman, 60, from Watford, is said to have never missed a game since the 90s, and his face is likely to be one well recognized amongst Hornets fans as he was commonly seen attending Watford and England games – both home and away.

However his body was found in a Venice canal shortly before the Three Lions World Cup qualifier on Monday (November 15).

I sat next to Kev on the coach to Sparta Prague in the early 80s, 20 hours there and 20 hours back. A horrendous journey in winter made totally bearable with his chat and banter. I dont think many got much sleep on the trip and I'm sure you could hear him chatting away from the front of the coach, whilst trying to get some sleep. Over the years, it would be a nod, a wink and a 'alright mate'. More recently, met him at a fans forum, had a pint, and talked about the trip to Prague and wondered if we would ever make these trips again with Watford. It will be a pity if/when it does happen and that he wont be there to share it. He would have deserved it. I know he will be sorely missed and I send my sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Watford and England Away will not be the same without you We used to call you Mr Watford and to me no one to step into your shoes. You really cared about the hornets. Gone but not forgotten.

Absolutely gutted when I heard of the news that Kev had left us. He was loyal to the core and always ready to chat and used to call me Shrewsbury Ray. He had time to chat with my son who knew him through me and also my sister. He will be deeply missed. RIP KEV TRUE HORNET

Sending my condolences to Kevin’s family. Back in the day, Elton Johns Tailor made army, used to go to home and away matches with him. He was also a very passionate England supporter. He and others used to like ticking off different grounds that they have been, I have family in Northern Ireland. England were playing Northern Ireland, he asked if he could get tickets which my uncle got for us. Watched the match and that was another one he could tick off his list. RIP Kevin, from Steve. Love you lots.

If this this Kevin who attended Victoria boys and Grange Park schools we attended games in the early 1970s and sold Golden Goal tickets at the Vic. We were in the same class at school, can someone confirm its him. So very very sad, lovely guy RIP Kevin . Ian Duncan.

Kev was always there! I've been bumping into him at home and away games since the 70's - he will be sorely missed by all those that follow Watford (and England) home and away. There was always a smile not far away from Kev's face however badly the team were playing. A great character - Watford will be a lesser place without him. RIP Kevin x

Although I did not know Kevin personally, I saw him at many away games and he always said hello. Or acknowledged you with a nod and smile. He will be sadly missed by all those who knew him and the many Watford fans who just remember from his smile. Condolences to his family.

I spent 15 years going to Watford home and away games with Kev. We had some awesome trips away and I'll never forget those memories we made. He was a top bloke, a gentleman and had Watford running through his veins. I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me. He truly was a legend and will be sorely missed.

Kevin...top bloke ! He always shared a few minutes with me when we met , the last time was in Austria during pre-season. For someone with so many contacts to have that energy for other people.........that's special , and a rare attribute R.I.P. Martin

As Kev's sister, I would like to thank everyone for their kind messages and tributes, it's clear he touched many hearts. Knowing Kevin he would be a little embarrassed by all the attention but secretly pleased. Watford FC was always a big part of his life and his absence will be felt all around the stadium. on Saturday sing loud & proud and celebrate his life as a true Golden boy.

Seen you at games for years and had a long chat after the Arsenal away game in the Euston Flyer with my two lads and said we’d catch up at Burnley. A top bloke and really couldn’t believe the news. RIP my hornet friend and condolences to your family.

I’ve seen you at away matches since the 1970’s and always had a quick word or sometimes just even a nod - a true supporter in every way - you will be missed terribly by all loyal Hornets . My condolences to his family and close friends on behalf of all the Harefield Hornets.

Gutted to read that you have left us mate, I will miss not having a chat in the pub at the grounds and above all, your passion for Watford FC. Only those who have a love for this club will understand what the club meant to you, the current owners don't. Kev knew that. RIP my friend.

Virtually everyone who has been regularly to an away game during the last 30 years will recognise him. Definitely heard him and more often than not shared a drink with him on a train, a pre match pub or in the ground. Kev’s name may not be instantly recognisable to a virtual audience because he wasn’t the sort to post online. He was old skool and going to the game with his mates was where it started and stopped. Going to EVERY game. He was tremendously supportive of the Supporters Trust in the early days. Both in making sure the message got through to the people who he went with, but also tangibly in donations and encouraging others to do likewise. His ludicrously awful death is a real shock. But Hornet Heaven has just let in someone who will proudly take his place with the great loyal fans of our club. I’m hopeful my boy and he hook up quickly. But GTs more than likely already made a beeline for Kev, so Fred will just have to queue up. A sad day. 2021 can do one.

I first met Kevin many years ago and our families enjoyed many New Years Eve together as well as weekends away that of course included an away game with Watford. Lots of memories. Sadly I havnt seen Kevin for a few years but it was still a shock to hear such sad news. My thoughts are with Heather and the family and his close friends.

So sad to hear the tragic news of Kevin's death. I know how much he was looking forward to his retirement. We were hoping to see hm over the Christmas period. I can only echo what has already been said about him and he will be sadly missed by many. He's been a great help to us professionally over the years and was always ready to give sound advice and help when required.

I was so shocked to here this news I have been Kevins Hair dresser for over 15 years seeing him every two weeks at my Salon. I have been friends of the family even longer with our boys being friends from school days. I will always remember him coming in in his shorts even in the winter months he always had a treat for our dog. We had some funny chats and he will be sadly missed We send our condolences to Heather, Tracy and Scott and faimly.

Kevin, where do I start. The life you gave me within football will last a lifetime and I'll be sure it carries on through our family. The life outside of football you gave me will be with me forever as well. The memories I have of birthdays, Christmases, holidays, NYE party's, Sunday dinners and everything else are magic and very special to me. We were so privileged to share with these special family moments with you. You are gone and my heart breaks but you will never be forgotten. I will see you soon. Take care, love you. Scott X. COYH
