Obituary for John Robert Noldan

John Robert Noldan
John R. Noldan was born on September 24, 1951 in Virginia Beach, VA. He passed on September 8, 2018 in Tacoma, WA after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Kathleen Noldan of Belfair; two daughters, Nichole Moore of Memphis, TN and Melissa Patrick of Lancaster, KY; two sons, John Noldan of Wells, ME and Joseph Noldan of Port Orchard; stepdaughter Leah Bothe of Belfair; one brother Eddie Noldan and one sister Patti Rose; and 9 grandchildren; Jeffrey, Tristan, Brianna Moore; Jordan Simpson; Alexys and Cody Patrick, Rylan and Delaney Noldan, Dominic Noldan; Marlea Bothe and numerous extended family members. He was preceded in death by his father Edward and Madeline Noldan.
John is a Vietnam War Veteran, having served in the Navy from 1969-1976. Following his Naval Service, John continued to serve his country working for Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for 41 years.
A loving father of four, John was a jack of all trades. He coached baseball, was involved in scouts, and was a big proponent of the military. John’s children went on to follow in his footsteps and serve our country. His children have provided a cumulative to date of almost 30 years of military service.
With grandchildren spanning both coasts of the country, John managed to stay involved in all nine grandchildren’s lives. He shared interest in racing, hunting, summer activities and sports with his grandchildren. He will be sorely missed.
In 1989 John joined the eagles……. He was a charter member and the first Worthy President of North Mason #4226. He served in the positions of Aerie Secretary, Vice President, and was the current Worthy President. He was also a member of the Trial committee. John worked his way through the State chairs, and in 2005 became the Washington State Aerie President. In 2010, John was inducted into the Washington State Aerie Hall of Fame.
John also served 5 years on the Grand Aerie Pension board, and in 2013, John was elected into the office of Grand Aerie Inside Guard, and worked his way up to his 3rd year as Grand Aerie Trustee, with the dream of being Grand Worthy President in 2022.
John was also a big fan of cruising on the Carnival Cruise lines. John and his wife Kat would always do a cruise or two a year along with family members and numerous friends. He usually was always helping one of the groups with them, or out on the lido deck in a Hawaiian shirt with a beer in hand and line dancing with everyone, saying “who cares if I mess up, they will never see me again.” He was always out to have fun and made sure everyone else did also.
In lieu of flowers John would prefer that a donation to The WA State Cancer Charity be made in his honor.
