My deepest condolences on the passing of Mr. Noseworthy in February. I was not in town to attend the visitation recently to meet the family. I have wonderful memories of your dad as I grew up around Newfoundland Tractor. He always had a smile for me.

Please accept my sincere condolence on the passing of your father. I worked with him at Nfld Tracor for many years. He always seemed to enjoy life and was dedicated to whatever he did. May all your memories bring you comfort at this time

I am so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. I would like to extend sincere sympathy to all of you in your loss.

The Noseworthy Family
I am so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. It was a honour to know both of your parents. Over the years there were many games of bridge, get togethers for special times and of course involvement with the Kiwanis Club. Fred was a good person, he loved music and was a proud committed supporter of the Kiwanis Music Festival. He will be missed by all who knew him. May fond memories of your father/grandfather bring you comfort. Sincere condolences.

The Noseworthy Family:
I am so very saddened to learn of Fred’s passing. He was, indeed, a fixture with the Kiwanis Music Festival, and I had the privilege of working with him on the Festival Committee for many years, and in the day-to-day running of the Festival each year as well. He was a stalwart by all measurements; a man of dedication and love for all things musical. He will be sorely missed, and I am so sorry for his loss.

The Noseworthy Family

I am so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. We shared the same passion for Newfoundland Stamps. He was a respected philatelist, and mentor, he will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with you.

Nancy Robert and family. I first met your father in 1947 when I had a summer job at the tractor company. We sang in Cochrane St choir. We enjoyed Kiwanis together. Both your parents were bridge partners with us on many occassions. Fred was most interested in Music so I have wondered how his passing was in the middle of the Kiwanis Music Festival. One has to wonder? We are in Florida and cannot visit with you but we have you in our thoughts and prayers . May your many happy memories bring you comfort at this time.

Nancy and Family,
I had the pleasure of working with your father/grandfather for many years with the Kiwanis Music Festival. He was a kind and well liked gentlemen. My sincere condolences.

Nancy and Robert, so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. We have many fond memories of both your parents. The four of us played bridge and socialized together at Middle Gull Pond for many years. Please accept our sincere sympathy.

Fred lived a long and productive life and will be missed by family and many friends.

Nancy and family,

I have worked with Fred for many years with the Kiwanis Music Festival. I have always had a soft spot for Fred, My sincere condolences.

Most saddened by Fred’s passing. He was mentor and friend to the stamp and coin collecting fraternity. He had the uncanny ability to find the correct information on the image in the postcards he collected, which were dear to his and Frances hearts. Many an evening he would spend getting together with local stamp collectors talking about his favorite postcard from yesteryears. I sadly miss him. He was most enjoyable as a friend. My condolences.

On behalf of the Pippy family please accept our sincere condolences.
I remember working with Mr. Noseworthy during my summer jobs at Nl Tractor. I certainly remember him as a character.

Fred was a character. I have great memories of him on the badminton court in Southcott Hall as well as family vacations and trips to Middle Gull Pond. His sense of humor and dry wit will be missed. My condolences to Nancy, Robert and family.

Nancy, Robert and Family. So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I had the pleasure of working closely with him at the Kiwanis Music Festival for the past 20 years. He loved the Festival and was one of its most active supporters. He will be missed.

Fred was a gentlemen who loved his family and community. His long life was a testament to his long walks. Showing us the key to a healthy life well before it was fashionable. He will be missed.
