Noah James Edelstein, 87, of Wallingford, Connecticut passed away on Tuesday, May 19th 2020 at Masonicare Hospice Center in Wallingford, Connecticut.
Noah was born on December 23, 1932 in Hartford, Connecticut to Harry and Lucille (Broadway) Edelstein.
Noah had a fun loving and gregarious spirit. After graduating from High School, he attended the University of Connecticut. He soon got the call to serve his country by joining the United States Marine Corp. He held his service to his country in high regard throughout his entire life. In 1972 he married the love of his life, Ruby Ellen (Vance). Shortly after Noah’s retirement from The Aetna, he and Ruby moved to Haines City Florida. They resided in Florida for over 20 years. In his own words Noah often said that he had the “Best” wife (Ruby) and a “wonderful life”. Sadly, Ruby passed away just prior to moving back to Connecticut to be closer to family. Noah was a “giver” to literally hundreds of causes such as his church family, University of Connecticut Nursing in memory of Ruby, Alzheimer’s Association, World War II Museum, K9’s for Warriors to name a few. He was not a wealthy man, but had a huge giving heart. He was usually found singing in the church choir or in the Masonicare singing group called “Anyone Can Sing”. He loved entertaining the Masonicare residents in song or with a joke.
Noah is predeceased by his son Harry A. Edelstein. He leaves daughters Edith Hurst and her husband James of Colchester, CT, Debra Howson of South Windsor, CT, Holly Beth Gingras of Mansfield, CT, Dawn Dwyer of New Hartford, CT, Grandchildren, Debra Cardoza and her husband Jordan Sr., Kyle Gingras, Megan Gingras, William Dwyer, Christian Dwyer; two Great Grandchildren, Hailey, and Jordan Cardoza Jr., a Sister-in-law Roberta Rood, and several Nieces and Nephews.
Services are private. Donations in Noah’s memory may be made to the University of Connecticut School of Nursing. Ruby and Noah are finally reunited, dancing under the stars in Heaven forever.
