January 13, 1943 ~ February 5, 2015
Jerome Joseph Noone, 72, passed away February 5, 2015 at Loma Linda University Hospital in Murrieta, California. Jerry was born on January 13, 1943 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. The family moved and settled in California when he was 4 years old. He became the oldest of 5 children growing up in a close knit and loving family. In 1961 he married Kay and they became the parents to 3 children. He worked as a framing contractor in the San Fernando Valley for over 40 years building some of the valley's finest homes. He was a lover of life. He loved music, dancing, playing cards, and camping at the Kern River. His greatest love, however, was always his family. He will be remembered by his love, kindness, graciousness and clever wit. Survivors include his sisters, Mary and Dorothy, his children, Susie, Jerry Jr. and Judy. 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his 2 brothers Joey and Bobby. Thank you, Dad, for teaching us to love unconditionally, to forgive, to be gracious, and to keep people as a priority. You will be forever loved and in our hearts.
Dear Family of Jerry Noone, Jim & I are deeply saddened to hear of Jerry’s passing & our prayers go out to all of you at this very difficult time. May God’s love & peace bring you comfort in the days ahead. With our deepest sympathy, Jim & Colleen Sando
I am so sorry Jerry’s family and acquaintances will be missing him so very much here on earth. From all things I heard about Jerry over the years I know he loved his work, play and especially his family. May your losses be softened with your memories of him…laughing, playing, and loving.
I have nothing but the fondest memories of Jerry. He was one of the kindest and most likable people I ever met. Speaking with him was a pleasure, he made me feel so welcomed in his presence. It has been many years since I’ve seen him last, but I can’t forget a guy like him – they don’t pass through one’s life very often. God have mercy on his soul.
I MET JERRY FOR THE FIRST TIME WHEN I CAME TO CA. TO VISIT IN 1978. WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME TOGETHER-JUST HANGING OUT AT MARYLOU’S TAVERN AND LATER TRAVELLING TO RENO WITH HIM FOR A JOB HE HAD TO DO. HE ALWAYS WORKED HARD BUT ALSO HAD A GREAT TIME GAMBLING-CRAPS-AND HAVING SOME DRINKS! HE WAS VERY CARING AND LOOKED AFTER ME WHENEVER WE WENT OUT-LOTS OF NIGHTS A SUTTER’S MILL!! I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH THE FOND MEMORIES I HAVE OF HIM. HE WAS TRULY ONE OF THE FINEST PEOPLE I EVER MET! MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO THE ENTIRE NOONE FAMILY.
Jerry, My amigo, compadre, friend, gambling buddy, brother-in-law, it’s been a pleasure knowing you, spending time with you and enjoying our various trips together. You’re one of a kind. This is not good-bye but until I see you again. “Who loves you baby?……Kojak”
My deepest condolences to Jerry’s family during this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Jerry was one of the good guys….and will be truely missed.
My love and heartfelt sympathy’s to all of the Noone family. I know that the days to come will be hard, so I wanted to share with all of you the person I knew; we all knew. Jerry was truly “one of the good guys”, as Kathy Doran so perfectly put. He had a gentle kindness and generous nature that was undeniable. He saw people without judgement. His care for others was always authentic. And boy, he loved to laugh. We had so many shared jokes (“can’t rush into these things!”) Every child, blood related or not, every four legged creature, was drawn to him. They say when you look upon those that you love, you get a glimpse of the face of God. With Jerry, we got a little more than a glimpse. I love you, Jerry, and will miss you until “that day.” I’d like to imagine him lying down by green pastures, singing his song, ….”and the chain will be unbroken..” May this bring, if only for awhile, some comfort and peace, knowing how much he “is” loved.
My sincere condolences to the entire family for your loss. May the memories you have be shared with others; and bring you comfort during this difficult time.
Noone Family— My deepest sympathies for the loss of your brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle. I know it takes a while to accept that he is in a better place but it’s true. I have some wonderful memories of Jerry — in 1974, riding in the back of his truck with Susie, Jerry and Judy when he and Kay took us to Magic Mountain. In 2002, going to the Notre Dame/USC football game, convinced that I had someone on my side, until he told me that ND was his 2nd favorite team — after USC. I tried to convince him blood was thicker than water — being Irish — but he just smiled and said he’d lived in California for a long time. When he lived in the Valley he never failed to come visit at Butchie’s when I was out there. And he never failed to tell me how his kids were doing — he was so proud of the three of you. May your memories sustain you until you meet again.
Our condolences go out to the family. May you find comfort in knowing there is one more Angel looking down on you from heaven. Uncle Jerry was a great man and we were blessed to have had him in our lives.
Susie, Jerry & Judy, I was extremely sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. It seems just like yesterday I was always going up his house to stay with him & your Uncle Joe the first time I was stationed at Pendleton. He was a great individual to hang out with and look up to. His laugh was infectious. He always took the time to stop by my brother’s house when we would visit. He will be forever missed. May he rest in peace. S/F Shiney
You are an amazing Godfather, you have always held a special place in my heart. I cherish the memories of my childhood visiting your home and spending the weekend with you. I love you! RIP. You’re a great man!!
