Gene G. Noble

Gene G. Noble, "the absolute luckiest man on Earth", age 89 of Circleville, passed away Tuesday, February 15, 2022, at the O.S.U. 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. Gene was an Air Force veteran who served in the Korean War. 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. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife and the love of his life, Judy (Gardinier) Noble; his oldest son, Joe; great granddaughter, Ava Grace Gunn; his sister, Eleanor Louise Beam.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m. Monday February 21, 2022, at St. John XXIII Catholic Church, 5170 Winchester Southern Rd., Canal Winchester with Fr. Brian O'Connor, Celebrant. Interment with military honors will follow at St. Mary Cemetery, Lancaster. Friends may call from 1- 5 p.m. Sunday at the Taylor-Theller Funeral Home, Amanda. A vigil service will be held at 5:00 p.m. Sunday with Rosary immediately following at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like contributions payable to "Dayton Children's Hospital" in memory of Gene and in honor of his great granddaughter, Ava Grace Gunn by mailing them in care of Taylor-Theller Funeral Home, P.O. Box 176, Amanda, OH 43102.

Gene was such a joy filled person. When I saw Gene I would say, "Hi Gene". He would answer me by saying, "Hey, this shouldn't be a health issue". His humor always made me smile. I have been blessed to have had our paths to have crossed. May he R.I.P.

To Susie, Jeff, Sharon, Sandy, Scott, and Jerry,

Your Dad was always so joyful, so comfortable in his own skin, and such a good friend to my Mom and Dad (Pauline and John Flahive). In fact, my Mom and Dad were very fond of both of your parents. I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been to have them for parents. We Flahives were fortunate to know your Mom and Dad and you kids, too.
It is so sad that this world has lost such a wonderful man. And, oh God, how he will be missed!
Bless all of you and your families. Thank you for all the great memories and for the fantastic picture-video you created and posted to the Taylor-Theller site. What an extraordinary group of people you all are!

Our world has lost a bright and shining star. Gene was always ready to help with the drop of a hat. His humor contagious. His love for his family never faltered. With Deepest Sympathy.

Gene Noble was my friend, my mentor, one of my heroes in life. Always ready and willing to help, council and pitch in with soul and body, if I needed help. Helping to raise our son along with his seven children, I worried less about Mike's safety in Gene's care than in my own. My blessings, my sympathies to his wonderful family. He will be missed but I know he is in a better place, though I don't know if that place is ready for him. If you knew him, you'd understand that statement. I find comfort in knowing that he and Judy are reunited. God bless you all.

Doug and I are recent additions to Knollwood Village and the first neighbor to introduce himself to us was Gene and his dear dog Rosie. He generously offered his home to us for anything we might need as our house was being built. In the two plus years we've lived here, we got to know Gene quite well and enjoyed the many memories he shared with us. His passing has left a huge hole in our hearts and we will miss him greatly. May you rest in Peace, Gene.

My family and I are so sorry for your loss. Gene was our neighbor in Knollwood Village and we loved to chat with him. My husband and I have three girls and they loved seeing Gene and Rosie. He ALWAYS had a smile and was so fun to talk to. We will miss him.
