Obituary of Noel Ernest White
On Thursday October 20th after a brief illness, Noel passed away peacefully with his beloved Karen by his side. He was a loving and proud father to his 3 angels, Amanda (Jeremy), Kailee (Kavan) and Shannon. Cherished Granda to Easton and Odin. Dear brother of Alan, Colin (Ellen), Audrey (Doug), Sharon (Ray) and Norman. Noel will be loved and remembered by his brother-in-law Ritchard who always called him Nolee. Noel is also survived by a wealth of nieces, nephews and extended family in both Canada and Northern Ireland. He will also be greatly missed by his many dear friends. He is predeceased by his parents, Ernest and Muriel, and by his devoted dog, Bailey.
Noel was born in Northern Ireland and immigrated to Canada with his family when he was a young teenager. He worked in maintenance at the St. Catharines Hospital for 37 years, where he forged many lifelong friendships. Noel had a passion for soccer, whether it was playing, refereeing, or coaching. He could often be found cheering on Manchester United. Noel will be remembered for his fierce love of his family, and how he always made sure they were taken care of.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff, nurses and doctors at NHS-St.Catharines who worked tirelessly to find a treatment for Noel while making him as comfortable as possible.
In keeping with Noel's wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date, after the family has had some time to adjust to a different life without Noel. He will eventually be laid to rest in his home of Northern Ireland.
Noel, we love you so much and miss you terribly already, our hearts are broken. We will cherish your memory and will take you with us wherever we go. As you passed quietly from this world to the next we know Bailey was there waiting for you, probably with her tennis ball.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
