Noah, Frederick A. (1928? – 29 MAY 2019)

Frederick A. Noah, 91, Hawthorne, Calif., formerly of Greenwood, was welcomed Home with our Lord on Wednesday, May 29, 2019. A memorial service was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hawthorne, on Saturday, June 22 at 11 a.m.

Born and raised on the family farm in Greenwood, Fred was the oldest of the 10 children of Emil and Marianna Noah. Fred’s curiosity about the world prompted him to join the Navy at the age of 17 in 1946. He served on the USS Manchester and visited places like Venice and the Great Pyramid during his tours. He was recalled to active duty during the Korean Conflict and served in South Carolina until 1953. His formal education included attending Milwaukee School of Engineering, El Camino College and UCLA, but he never stopped learning. He went to work at Northrop in 1953 and retired from there in 1993. During his time at Northrop, he worked as a major subcontracts administrator in the electronics division. After a serious traffic accident in 1988, Fred focused even more of his free time on volunteer efforts at Trinity Lutheran Church and Schools. He was a member of Trinity for over 60 years where he served as treasurer and vice president. Fred also applied his expertise and strong work ethic to repairing and maintaining anything and everything at the church, no matter the hour. In 1954, Fred married Ruth Bratz, also a native Wisconsinite. They moved to HollyGlen in 1955 and raised their family: David and Rosetta Noah of Wichita, Kansas; Patricia and Antonio Rivas of Los Angeles; and Janet and Jon Aasness of Long Beach. He is also survived by his grandson, Dylan, and wife, Valarie Aasness and granddaughter, Caryn Aasness.

Fred and Ruth enjoyed traveling together and had the chance to visit many countries and states. Fred’s trip to Machu Picchu, the Galapagos, and Ecuador, with his son-in-law, Antonio, fulfilled a lifelong dream. His interests included photography, woodworking, auto restoration and collecting tools.
