St. Johnsbury, VT: Jason Philip Noël, Faithful Servant of the Lord, was called to his Eternal Home January 19, 2020. He passed unexpectedly Sunday morning at the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital in St. Johnsbury; Jason was 43.
He was born in St. Johnsbury, VT, on August 25, 1976, son to Jean Paul Arsene and Sharon Ann (Ely) Noël. He was raised and educated in Lyndonville graduating from Lyndon Institute in the Class of 1995. He matriculated to Lyndon State where he received a BS in Environmental Science. An avid reader, Jason loved learning. He was also very musically talented: singing, songwriting, and playing guitar, trombone, and most recently ukulele. On September 6, 2008, he married Rebekah Clifford and even wrote their wedding song. He worked for VT Tap & Die, at Kennametal in Human Resources, and most recently at Tender Corporation. Safety management was his passion, always looking out for those with whom he worked to provide a better space to continue working. Prior to Tender, he ran his own consulting company, Noël Environmental Health Services. Jason was an all-around sportsman, coach, avid golfer, hunter... he loved bird hunting with his brittanies, Clover and Ginger. He loved kayaking, camping, gardening, and just being outdoors. He cheered passionately for the San Francisco 49ers and was looking forward to seeing them make and win the Super Bowl. He got into archery through his good friend, Ricky Smith, and had great times shooting with him and his nephews. This led him also into archery competitions where he excelled. He loved life while being a kid at heart and never missed an opportunity to take someone’s ornery remark and put it to song. Jason was a great cook, loved to grill, BBQ, and smoke meats. He loved spending time with his nieces and nephews, and sledding with his kids. For years, he was the Worship Leader and church treasurer at Lyndon Full Gospel Assembly of God. His family was and still is his joy. Loving them, praying with them and for them. A few more words that describe Jason would be: Loyal, Committed, Devoted, Loving, Compassionate and a Good Steward.
