Donald J. Nores Obituary
May 28, 1930 - June 9, 2016 Donald Nores was received into Gods hands, surrounded by his family, on June 09, 2016. Don was born at Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles on May 28, 1930 to his loving parents Marguerite and Robert Nores. His childhood was spent in Alhambra, California where he attended St. Therese Catholic School. He later attended Loyola High School and Loyola University where he graduated in 1952 with a degree in Business Administration. In later years, as an entrepreneur, he returned to Loyola Marymount University to establish the Entrepreneurship Program. In 1950, Don met Joyce Ann O'Hagan of San Marino - a blind date grew into the love of a lifetime. They wed at Saint Felicitas Church in San Marino on June 21, 1952. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the US Air Force, serving for two years. Due to his love of classical music, he became involved as a founding director of the Los Angeles Master Chorale and remained actively involved with the Chorale, rising to the title of Director Emeritus. Don, always challenging himself, decided in 1971 to establish his own company, Digital Printing Systems. With Don at the helm, DPS has become the leader in the parking and transit industry. Don had many interests and hobbies; however, sailing, woodwork, and traveling with his family were his true passions. Don and Joyce extensively traveled to many capitals of the world. He was particularly proud of a pair of bent wood baby cradles he built for his grandchildren. With great zeal, Don set goals and accomplished them. He was deeply involved in his community, serving as President of Holy Family Adoption Service and many other charitable organizations including St. Phillip the Apostle, Loyola High School, Loyola Marymount University, Mayfield School, and Saint Andrew's Abbey. Donald Nores was a humble man of incredible integrity and character, always giving, in countless ways, to his family, friends, and the community he loved. There are no words to describe the amazing son, husband, father, uncle, and grandfather he was. Don found tremendous joy in spending time with his family and will be greatly missed by all. He is survived by: his loving wife Joyce of 64 years, his three children and their spouses: Jim and Mary Nores, Nancy Snowden, Brian Nores and Edmundo Luna, his grandchildren: Christopher, Matthew and Michelle Nores, David Flannery, Danny, Mitchell, Mariah and Scott Snowden and his adoring niece, Drucilla Kent. Funeral services will be held at Saint Philip the Apostle Church, 151 South Hill Avenue, Pasadena on Saturday, June, 18, 2016 at 1:30PM. Interment will be at San Gabriel Cemetery, 601 Roses Road. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his name to St Phillip the Apostle Church, Loyola Marymount University, Loyola High School, or the Huntington Hospital. Cabot and Sons Funeral Homes
