Eugene H. Noll Obituary
April 26, 1927 - July 4, 2016 After a short period of declining health, Gene died peacefully in his sleep on July 4, 2016. Born in Lima, Ohio in 1927, Gene was raised in Indiana, graduated from Indianapolis' Arsenal Technical High School in 1944, and joined the Navy in 1945 at the age of 18 where he served as a seaman on the USS Cabildo during World War II. While attending Purdue University, Gene married the love of his life and wife of 67 years Virginia ("Ginny") Tapfer on August 26, 1949 in Pasadena, CA. After graduating from Purdue with a degree in metallurgical engineering, Gene and Ginny returned to California, where Gene joined his father-in-law in the furniture retailing business. But Gene's true vocational calling was as a stockbroker and investment advisor. After working with another brokerage firm, he co-founded Maxwell Noll, Inc. with J. Terry Maxwell (deceased) in 1975. He combined that passion for investing with his lifelong love of learning and teaching to found and operate the Pacific School of Finance, where he taught his investment clients and others how to invest wisely. He was active in the Pasadena community, including the Better Business Bureau, South Pasadena-San Marino YMCA, the Pasadena Bond Club and Convalescent Aid Society. Gene's family and friends remember Gene as a true outdoorsman, with a passion for backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, and bicycling. He passed on his love for these activities to his four sons, and until quite recently, Gene and his boys would go on annual fly fishing trips together. Gene loved to travel with Ginny and his family. He lived a very full and active life with Ginny and loved nothing more than a fun party with family and friends, and spending time with: Ginny and his sons Doug, Scott, Tim (deceased), and Mike; his daughters-in-law Aleya, Suzanne, Julie, and Wendy; his grandchildren, Austin (Kelsey), Stewart, Alison, Travis, Anna, Rachel, and Ames; and his great-grandson, Michael. His family will miss him and think of him every day. A memorial service will be held Friday, July 15 at 2:00PM at Church of Our Saviour, 535 Roses Road, San Gabriel, CA 91775. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in honor of H. Eugene Noll to either Convalescent Aid Society, 3255 E. Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107 or Pasadena Guild of Children's Hospital, 665 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena. CA 91105. Cabot & Sons, Pasadena
