Thomas E. Noble Obituary

Thomas Edward Noble, a man of quiet strength and loving kindness, passed away peacefully on February 7, 2024, in McHenry, IL. Born on December 18, 1948, in Chicago, IL to Sigmond and Elizabeth Noble, Thomas grew into a caring and dependable man, whose hands were rarely still as he took on the role of everyone's handyman.

Thomas's journey through life was marked by a deep and enduring love story that began when he married Linda Miotke on December 1, 1973. Together, they shared 50 joyous years, building a life filled with laughter, love, and cherished memories. As a family man, Thomas was the proud father of Catherine, Thomas (and his wife Maureen), and MarySue Noble. He was also the beloved grandfather to Jacob, Holden, Matthew, and Tess, who were his greatest joy and with whom he loved to spend time and create lasting memories.

In his professional life, Thomas was a dedicated member of the local 73 union for sheet metal workers. His commitment to his craft was only matched by his passion for baseball. As a skilled pitcher, he not only enjoyed the game but also the camaraderie and competition that came with it. His love for sleek design and powerful engines was evident in his admiration for Corvettes, a hobby that brought him much pleasure over the years.

Thomas's siblings, Sharon Poteraske, Ron Noble, and Howard Noble, along with his sister-in-law Betty Ann Faraci, fondly remember him for his steadfast presence and the support he so freely gave. His extended family, including many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, will miss the gentle guidance and the quiet but impactful influence he had on their lives. Thomas was preceded in death by his parents, Sigmond and Elizabeth Noble, his sister-in-law Monica, and his in-laws, Kathy and Tony Miotke.

Those who knew Thomas, even in passing, would describe him as loving and kind. His hands were not only skilled in fixing what was broken but also in holding together the fabric of his family. He was the embodiment of the word "handy," not only in his ability to repair and create but also in his capacity to provide comfort and support.

Thomas's legacy is not only in the structures he built or the objects he repaired but in the hearts of those he touched. He was a source of quiet strength, a pillar in his community, and a devoted family man. His passing leaves a void that will be felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

As the sun sets on a life so beautifully lived, we say goodbye to Thomas Edward Noble, knowing that his spirit will continue to guide and inspire us. His was a life that exemplified the virtues of love, kindness, and hard work, and while he may have left this world, his influence remains imprinted on the lives of his loved ones.

Let us honor Thomas's memory by embracing the values he held dear: family, craftsmanship, and a life well-lived. Though he may have been a man of few words, his actions spoke volumes, and the love he shared will echo through generations. Rest in peace, Thomas Edward Noble, knowing that you were truly loved, and your memory will be cherished forever.
