In Loving Memory of Raymond Edgar Nobles
December 16, 1927-February 25, 2020

Much loved father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed away at Pioneer Elder Care in St. Catharines, Ontario on February 25th 2020 at the age of 92. He is survived by his devoted family: daughter, Julie (Kirk) Springett, and sons, Derek (Jacqueline) Nobles and Richard (Cheryl) Nobles. Six grandchildren, Erin(Christian) Pilgrim , Adam Springett, Roxy Nobles, Daniel Nobles, Charlotte Nobles and Andrew Nobles. Great grandchildren Myla Pilgrim and Makenna Pilgrim. His dear brother Ged (Toni) Nobles, sister-in-law, Stella Little, and much loved nieces and nephews. Ray was predeceased by his adored wife of 63 years, Norma Louise Nobles (Hanna).

Ray was born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan and grew up in Edmonton. His business career with CIL and later Stauffer Chemical took him and his family across much of Canada and into the USA for a short time. One of the last moves was back to Toronto where he served as a Warden at St Paul's Church, Bloor Street for a number of years. He and Norma later retired to Minden, Ontario. Ray was fiercely proud of his Irish and United Empire Loyalist roots.

Pursuant to Ray’s wishes, Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Ray’s life will take place at a later date. The family requests no flowers. Donations in Ray’s memory are welcome to Highland Hills United Church or the Minden Hills Cultural Centre and can be arranged through the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., P.O. Box 427, Minden, Ontario K0M 2K0.

From Bill and Lois Reed of Halifax, Nova Scotia: Lois and I will never forget the kindness of Ray and Norma when we arrived in Port Arthur, Ontario as newlyweds in 1954. A thousand miles from home, we knew next to nothing about domestic affairs but they took us under their wing , entertaining us and introducing us to our friends. Ray was my supervisor in the CIL office and was extremely patient with his inexperienced clerk . Even though, subsequent transfers took us to Manitoba, Ontario, and the Maritimes, we kept in touch with the Nobles and their family , always grateful for their friendship and support.

We were so sorry to hear Ray has passed away. We so missed him when he moved from 15 Anson St. and often wondered where he had gone. He and Norma were great neighbours, always checking in with us, making sure we were OK. Always a smile and conversation. Ray will be greatly missed, hold those memories close to your hearts as we will. With our deepest sympathy at this sad time, our thoughts are with you all. Keith & Judy Hardy

On behalf of our extended Blackwood family on the West Coast, I would like to send our condolences to the Nobles' families. My father, Art, would often comment on the fun they had growing up. So nice to hear about the wonderful family he has left behind which is part of his legacy.

I have fond memories of Ray. He offered me much guidance as a young minister as he was a faithful man. Failing health led him away from Minden but his memory has been and will be cherished. Sincerely, Rev. Max Ward

Rev. Max Ward, Your kind words about my Dad are very much appreciated. He , in turn , thought very highly of you . I’ll contact you in the future regarding my parents burial wishes at the Minden Cemetery. Sincerely, Julie

A wonderful and loving grandpa. Some of my best memories are on his pontoon boat on Lake Kashagawigamog Lake and the Gull River, making blueberry pie and then eating almost the whole thing, boiled eggs for breakfast and making paper bags puppets at his cottage workshop. My grandpa had a zest for life that really shone through. So many amazing memories with him and grandma. I love you, grandpa! Rest In Peace
