Wexner Medical Center in Columbus while under the care of Hospice of Central Ohio. He was born October 23, 1932, in Dayton, son of the late Jesse R. and Emma L. (Hofferbert) Noble.

He was a member of St. John XXIII Catholic Church in Canal Winchester and was an active member of the International Union of Elevator Constructors Local #37. Gene was an elevator mechanic who retired in January 1995 with over 35 years of service. He was always laughing, able to make others smile and willing to lend help to others wherever he could. Gene could fix anything including cuts and scrapes with his butterfly bandages. He was a "Jack of All Trades". He was willing to give hugs to family, friends and even people he had just met. He was always teaching his children and grandchildren whether it be how to swim, ski, or how to enjoy life and do the right thing.
He was abundantly blessed with seven children, Joe, who precedes him in death, (Susan) Noble, Susie Noble, Jeff (Doreen) Noble, Sharon (Kevin) Davis, Sandy (Jimmy) Davis, Scott (Cindy) Noble and Jerry (Tammy) Noble; 16 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren; his beloved wiener dog, Rosie.
