18, of Scottsdale, Arizona passed away suddenly on January 25, 2013. Noah was born in Redondo Beach, California on December 16, 1994 and was a student at Saguaro High School in Scottsdale. At the age of 9, he proudly became a member of the Phoenix Boys Choir, graduating into their Masters Choir at age 14. He remained a member until his death, having spent half of his lifetime in dedicated service to the organization that nurtured his great love of music. His passion for music propelled him to continually teach himself new instruments, from guitar and harmonica to didgeridoo and more. Noah was also a self-taught amateur magician and delighted in confounding others with each new trick. During his short life, he had the good fortune to be able to see so much of this world. Among the destinations he enjoyed visiting were Great Britain, Taiwan, Thailand, China and Canada. This exceptional young man is remembered by everyone who met him for his smile, his good nature and his ever-present sense of humor. Noah is survived by his mother, Susan Wadsworth, of Scottsdale and father, Jose Carrasco of Sacramento, California. In Arizona, Noah leaves behind his brother Connor, stepfather Shane Nixon, devoted uncle Jay Wadsworth and adoring grandparents Nina and Robert Wadsworth. In California he is survived by his brother Jose, sister Dulce, a nephew and four nieces. In Washington he is survived by extended family including Deborah Myers, Jessica Skelton and Zachary Morrow. Noah will forever be missed by his beloved girlfriend, Destini Castro, his best friend Dakota Adams and countless other friends whose lives he has deeply touched. A memorial celebration of this amazing person's life and his love of music will be held on Sunday, February 17 at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center, 6110 N. Scottsdale Rd. beginning at 2:30 PM.
