From Dick Mauch:

Norb was our anchor and archery- bow hunting equipment link to ASTM standards FO8 committee from the beginning of our acceptance to a high level of improvement of products and safety, liability proof products of our industry.     Most do not know or understand just how valuable he was and of the time he donated to this job.  He represented our industry with a great conscious effort and a very dignified engineering analytical approach to each product being examined.

From Dave Gordon:

I would add one accomplishment that sometimes is over looked. The ASTM Safety Committee F08.16 under Norb’s leadership  authored 11 Treestand Guidelines that has made hunting from tree stands safer for the sportsman & less liability for manufactures. God Bless Norbert Mullaney, he made a major impact on our sport.
