Graham Richard Noble

Graham Noble, The Lord of Kelby, died on Saturday January 26th 2019, at the age of 75

Beloved husband of 54 years of Sharon and father to Colin and Michael

Graham was born July 3rd, 1943 in Bradford, Yorkshire England to proud parents Arthur and Edith Noble

In 1963 he met the love of his life, Sharon, and was married in 1964,

He will be lovingly missed by his two sons, Colin (Dianne) and Michael, his grandchildren, Blake, Kent and Laura, and his sister-in-law Anne.

Looking for a better life he emigrated to Victoria in 1966 to run his own barber shop. Unfortunately, due to the sudden death of his father Arthur, he returned to the UK in 1970, subsequently living on the Isle of Man for six years until 1976, when he again returned to the UK to become a Financial Consultant.

In 1979 he returned to Canada and settled in Kamloops where he established a successful company and helped many people plan for their retirement.
While in Kamloops, Graham was instrumental in the creation of the Kamloops Foundation now referred to as The BC Interior Community Foundation

In 1999 he took early retirement and moved to Canora, where he was the property manager of over 30 homes, and where he could enjoy small town living.

Always a world traveller, with a continual desire to expand his mind, he travelled extensively across the Americas, Europe, and Asia, and has now moved on to his next adventure.

Graham is predeceased by his Parents Arthur and Edith Noble, his brother Kevin Noble, and his grandson Alex

He will always be remembered fondly and greatly missed by his wife and family, his friends and all that knew him.

The Funeral Service will be heldat 2:00pm on Tuesday February 5th  in the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2165 Parkcrest Ave. Internment to follow at Hillside Cemetery.

    We send our sincerest condolences to the Noble family.
    Colin, I have fond memories of your dad, he always had a smile, quirky sense of humour and a kind word to share. I remember him giving our son Marc and other youngsters in the neighbourhood summer employment on his property. He encouraged young entrepreneurs wanting to get a start.
    May you be comforted in his memory during this difficult time.
    Melanie and Leo Pouliot

    To the Noble Family:
    I just heard the sad news, such an incredible loss! I often think about my visits to your home when Graham was first starting his business in Kamloops. I am sure he will be missed greatly.
    My best to Sharon and family.
