Gene A. Noll, Sr., of Pompton Plains, died Sunday, January 17, 2021. He was 85.
Born in Staten Island, Gene was the son of Carl and Mae Noll. Marrying Ruth Ann Esposito, the couple raised a son and daughter together.
Gene was a true American success story. Starting as a box boy at A&P, he rose through the ranks to manage stores, and eventually was promoted to the company's main headquarters. He traveled throughout the country implementing technology into each of the company's stores. He instilled in his children a strong work ethic that they are ever grateful for.
During his last years, Gene spent many hours in prayer and reciting the Rosary for the health and safety of his loved ones. Please say a prayer for him today.
Gene is lovingly survived by his children, Gene Noll, Jr. and his wife Erin, and Helen Torebka and her husband David, as well as his grandchildren, Fiona and Carl Noll. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Ruth Ann.
Due to the pandemic, funeral services will be private.
In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Gene's memory would be greatly appreciated by his family.
