Douglas Edward Noble

November 9, 1926 — April 7, 2015

Doug Noble was born in North Vancouver, BC, to Bertie and Madeleine Noble. He moved to Stave Falls as a small child, and then to Maple Ridge (Haney) when six years of age. Except for a stint in the Army during World War II, Doug lived in Maple Ridge for over eighty (80) years.
Doug was predeceased by his parents, Sister Lois and brother-in-law R.B. (Bob) McCullough, and by his best friend and soul brother Martin Williams.
Survived by his loving and caring family, wife, Dorethy, and sons Sean and Ross Noble; Niece Patricia McCullough and Nephew Doug McCullough and their families. Not to be forgotten, his feline friend and constant companion, Chloe; Angie (Baby), and the ever present Rocco (Golden Retriever).
Doug was passionate about many things: animals—dogs and especially cats; gardening and the environment; and soccer. As a younger man he played badminton with great enthusiasm. Bicycling was also something he loved, and served on the Bicycle Advisory Commission for Maple Ridge in its early years. He was an avid reader and a book and dictionary were never out of reach.
Doug was an electrician by profession, but a farmer at heart. He took Electrical/Electronics technology at BCIT when both he and the school were a lot younger. He worked as a tradesman, electrical contractor, and ultimately electrical inspector for the District of Maple Ridge.

Celebration of Doug’s life will be at the Royal Canadian Legion in Maple Ridge on Saturday, April 25th, from 1-3 p.m. This will be continued in the Sports Lounge from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. to toast a life well lived.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Katie’s Place in Maple Ridge, or Wildlife Rescue Association, Glencarin Rd., Burnaby.

    Heaven’s Light

    The sun shines down upon us
    with rays of warmth and light.
    Then when the day has ended,
    disappears beyond our sight.

    We then are left in darkness,
    not because the sun has died,
    but because it’s shining brightly
    on the world’s other side.

    So it is when one we love
    comes to their end of days.
    They go on to the other side
    to shine their loving rays.

    That’s why heaven is a place
    That glows beyond compare.
    The lights of those who’ve left us
    are all brightly shining there.
    Dorethy, Ross and Shawn, my sincere sympathy for your loss. Hugs Glenda
