Paul E Noble
Paul Eugene Noble, 87, of Milford passed away peacefully in the early hours of May 14, 2021 after giving his beloved wife, Donna, a three-year head start to Heaven.
Paul was Milford's friendliest postman and the most powerful voice in the Senior Center choir. His was a life of humble service, song and laughter, often in the company of friends at the Kimberly Diner.
Paul was born in Somerville, Massachusetts and moved to Milford as a teen, where he attended Milford High. Paul joined the U.S. Postal Service, beginning a 32-year career as a letter carrier. He met Donna Harvey at the Lordship roller-skating rink. They married in 1962 and had two daughters. Paul was an avid fisherman and loved a good joke.
His postal route covered hundreds of Milford households. He kept a special spot in his heart for their dogs – one of whom, Skippy, often rode shotgun in his delivery van. Paul's father and mother, Harry and Hilda, lived on the Naugatuck Avenue stretch of his route, where he visited them daily. After Hilda passed in 1968, Harry joined Paul, Donna and the girls as they moved together into a bigger home on Rita Lane. After retiring from the Post Office, Paul worked security at Schick Razors and delivered car parts for Colonial Toyota.
The Nobles were long-standing members of the United Pentecostal Church in Milford, which became Cornerstone Christian Center, where Donna served as secretary and Paul as a church elder.
Paul was predeceased by his brother, Harold, and three nephews, Paul, Kenny and David. He is survived by his daughters Janis (Kevin Gonsalves) Rockett of Fairhaven, MA and Dawn (Shawn Pogatchnik) Noble of Dublin, Ireland; granddaughter Alexandra Berntson, and grandsons Matthew Rockett and Harrison Noble.
