Obituary of Raymond J. Noble
Raymond J. Noble, 75, of East Hartford died on February 26th after a courageous battle with lymphoma. The son of Raymond G. Noble Jr. and Mary (Donegan) Noble, Raymond was born on September 30, 1946 in Hartford, CT. Raymond grew up in East Hartford, CT and attended the University of New Haven, receiving a BA in Business Management in 1972. He went on to Western New England College, receiving his MBA in Finance in 1976 and working as a financial planner for Hublein, Inc. in Farmington for 16 years, followed by employment at Advo, Inc, in Windsor for the remainder of his career.
Ray had a penchant for current events, the financial market, and wealth management, but he also loved working with his hands. He spent much of his time on car, boat, and engine maintenance, household repairs, and yardwork. When Ray’s daughter bought her first home, the pair spent many hours together on home improvement projects. Later when his daughter started her own veterinary practice, Ray greatly enjoyed seeing her embark into the business world and loved to discuss the particulars of small business planning with her.
When Ray was not at work on a household project or chatting business strategy with a friend or family member, he could often be found cheering on the UCONN basketball team or enjoying his wife’s gourmet cooking. He also took great pleasure in her homemade cookies and seasonal pies, and loved the milkshakes and root beer floats she would make for him in the evenings.
