Commercial Lobsterman Norbert B. Stamps Jr., of Charlestown, R.I., has passed away

Born on March 15, 1956 in Providence, RI, he was the husband of Patricia A. (Eastman) Stamps and the son of the late Norbert B. Sr. and Margaret (O’Neil) Stamps. At age 13, Norbert was fishing for striped bass with his father in Narragansett Bay and hooked something quite heavy with his fishing pole. At the end of the line was a lobster trap completely full of lobsters. From that moment on, he knew he wanted to be a fisherman. That winter he was in his basement building lobster traps. He then started to build a 26-foot skiff in the family’s backyard on Lennon Street in Providence which was completed upon graduating from Our Lady of Providence High School (OLP) in 1974. He became a full-time commercial lobsterman. During his career, he owned several 40 ft boats, owned his pride and joy 75 ft boat named after his two oldest boys, Brendan and Kevin, and was partners with Jay and David Gallup running an 80 ft boat. >click, read more about this beloved man< 11:02
