Hughes, Noah A.  
Noah A. Hughes AGE: 43 • Wilmington Noah A. Hughes, 43 of Wilmington, a loving son and devoted father, passed away suddenly at his home on Friday, April 15, 2016. Noah moved with his family from Ponca City, Oklahoma, to Wilmington in 1989. The move was difficult for Noah, as it would have been for any teenager, as it coincided with the beginning of his junior year of high school and necessitated leaving behind many friends. But he soon made new friendships and managed to maintain many old ones. The outpouring of condolences from his friends here and in Oklahoma has been a comfort to the family. After graduating from John Dickinson High School, Noah served proudly in the Army's 10th Mountain Division, with which he twice deployed overseas. Later, civilian jobs took him to Louisville, Kentucky, to Syracuse, New York, and then back to Wilmington. A desire to work in the field of drug and alcohol counseling led him to enroll in that program at the Delaware Technical and Community College, from which he graduated, with honors, in 2014. Noah is survived by his parents Ann and Lester Hughes of Wilmington; his sister Jessica Hughes of Toronto, Canada; his daughter Maisie Hughes and her mother, Nichole Russo, Noah's partner of many years, both of Wilmington; and his uncles Jerry Hughes of Oklahoma City, Roger Hughes of Denver, and Gary Hauge of Des Moines. We listen for your footstep, for your voice, but there is only silence. Wherever your soul may roam, know this: there is a place in our hearts that is forever yours. Friends of Noah and his family are invited to an informal celebration of Noah's life on Friday May 6, from 5 to 7 pm, at the Hunter's Den restaurant, 3517 Old Capitol Trail, Wilmington. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to a savings account for the education of Noah's daughter, Maisie E. F. Hughes, which can be made at any WSFS Bank branch or 4730 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808. Condolences can be made at MealeyFuneralHomes.com (302) 652-5913
