Brian W. Noone, 68

LANCASTER - Brian W. Noone, 68, was welcomed by our Lord on August 8th, 2017, following a heroic battle with cancer.

He leaves behind his devoted wife of 24 years, Rosalie C. Jones-Noone, stepson Lawrence M. Jones III and wife Nicole of South Glastonbury, CT, stepdaughter Lisa Marie Jones Elia and husband, Fred Elia of Belleair Beach, FL. Brian thought of Larry and Lisa as his own children and spoke of them in that way. Brian had six cherished grandchildren whom he adored and was called "Papa" to his delight. They are Alexa Catherine Jones, Matthew Gregory Jones, Ryan Lawrence Jones, Paul John (PJ) Jones, Tyler John Elia, and Grace Anne Elia. Brian leaves two brothers, John F. Noone Jr. of Worcester, and his long time companion, Jill, and Michael L. Noone and wife, Rosemary, of Brewster. He also leaves two nieces, one nephew, and two grand nieces.

Brian graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in 1966, followed by earning a BSE at Fitchburg State College. He taught history and social studies for the Worcester Public Schools. For the next 3 years, after teaching distributive education subjects for 2 ½ years at Bay Path Vocational High School, he left to pursue his Master's in Counseling Psychology. Brian spent the next 16 ½ years at the Occupational Training Center in Worcester. Shortly after marrying in 1993, he joined the Winchendon Public Schools as a School Psychologist and continued his education earning a CAGS from UMass Boston.

Brian's legacy was to be of service to others. He enjoyed reading, history, discussing religion, an occasional ball game, and feeding ducks with his wife. Best of all, he enjoyed being with his wife, grandchildren, and extended family.

I worked with Brian for many years at OTC and my office was next to his. We shared lots of laughs and he was a good friend and co-worker who really seemed to love his job. While we lost touch I was happy to read he had married and had a loving family. Our prayers and condolences go out to you all at this time. So sorry for your loss. Sincerely Diane and Phil Doherty

Rosalie, So sorry to hear of Brian passing away. We both worked many years at OTC in Worcester. Although I supervised him he was always more a friend and someone I would seek out for wise guidance. He will be fondly remembered.

Hello Rosalie,

I taught in the Worcester Public Schools at East Middle School at the same time as Brian. He was a very, very nice man and we were friends.

Sometimes, he would come over to the house and we would play Chess until the wee hours which is a nice memory for me.

Although I lost track of him after he left WPS, I am happy to see that he found love and family.

I am sure he will be missed.

To Brian's family ~
It is with sadness that I extend to you my deepest condolences in your great loss. Brian and I were classmates at Sacred Heart Academy. Upon seeing his picture, I thought, Brian's sweet face hasn't changed at all. I pray that all who cherish Brian, will find solace and peace in the loving arms of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I was so saddened to hear of Brian's passing. I worked with Brian in Winchendon for many years. We often had lunch at the same time of day or shared a few minutes of prep time talking. Always a gentleman and always professional and thoughtful. During my Masters program, he shared a great deal of his time helping me to become proficient with administering and interpreting academic testing data. Brian's door was always open to our staff, and he always provided greater insight into our students' academic and emotional needs. I wanted you to know how many lives he touched and enriched in Winchendon. Though I haven't seen him since I retired, he was one of my fondest memories of my time teaching at Murdock. May God's gentle peace be with you all.
