Obituary of Thomas Francis Noe
Thomas Francis Noe, age 73, of Minooka, and formerly of Burbank and Chicago, passed away Friday, January 21, 2022 at Morris Hospital.
Born November 9, 1948 in Chicago, he was the son of Francis and Myrtle (Baker) Noe, and attended Reavis High School. He was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps as a jet mechanic. He attained the rank of Corporal, and served in Vietnam. He then enjoyed a 25 year career with the Chicago Police Department as a police officer.
Tom was a proud man; proud of his military service, proud of his service to the police department and his community, and proud of his amazing family. He was very family oriented and was described by his children as the best dad and papa ever, and as their guide and protector, and their safe place. He had a keen sense of mechanics and loved doing research on how to fix things. He was also a proud dog dad and was a man surrounded by love.
In his free time he loved golfing, bowling, playing cards and poker, cooking, baking, grilling, and fishing. Fishing trips with his brother, Mike, were a special highlight of his life. In his youth, he also enjoyed playing 16 inch softball.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 51 years, Linda (Swierkosz) Noe of Minooka; four loving children, Diane (Eddie) Slowikowski, Jeanine Noe, Michelle Noe and Thomas Noe, Jr.; and two adoring granddaughters, Adeline and Molly Slowikowski. Tom was also a fond brother to Frank (Daniela) Noe and Patricia (Sam) Silvia; a dear brother-in-law to Carmela Noe and Joe Rosales; and an uncle and great uncle to many.
He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Michael Noe; and two sisters, Cheryl Marrigan and Debra Rosales.
