Condolences to Brigitte and John.

Sincéres condoléances Brigitte ainsi qu’a toute la famille, bon courage dans cette douloureuse épreuve

Dear Brigitte,
So very sad to hear the news of your loss.. Please accept my deepest condolences.

I met Noah the summer before I started university. I loved running into him and spending time with him over the years. His kindness, gentle nature and humour had such a profound effect on everyone who loved him. It was so easy to love him, he was an amazing friend to everyone he met. I cherish my memories with him, and send my most sincere condolences to his loved ones. Until we meet again ❤️

Brigitte ,
I met you through my dear friend Camilla many years ago. I wish I could have some profound words to share with you to ease your pain . Sending you my deepest condolences 💐

Very sorry to learn of Noah’s passing, my condolences to you Brigitte, Jonathon and all family members at this difficult time

I knew you for but a short time, though it was a good time. I and many others loved you. Rest in peace.

Sending deepest condolences to Noah’s family. He left his mark on so many young improvisers, like my son Gavin. Noah’s quick wit, humour, and kindness will never be forgotten.

We are only hearing of Noah’s loss now as we are out of the country but are immensely saddened by it. He was a kid when we moved onto the street but it was obvious that he was an old soul. We never knew who he loved more, his dog Shadow or his skateboard, but it was obvious that he loved and was loved. We are so very sorry for your loss

Thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

Although I went to elementary school with Noah, we didn’t get to know each other well until we both joined St. Paul’s Junior High’s improv team in grade 7. I had a pretty bad junior high experience, but improv was my outlet. Almost all of my positive memories from that time are from Mr. Hale’s classroom after school on Wednesdays, where Noah would never fail to make me and everyone else buckle over in laughter. In high school, we competed on separate teams, but I always cherished the moments we got to perform together because he was the kind of person everyone wanted to be around. While he quickly grew into a cool and popular high schooler, he never let it get to his head and remained humble and kind to everyone he crossed paths with, including me. We were never extraordinarily close friends, but he left such a big impact on everyone he met – myself included. I have been out of St. John’s for several years and have since left the improv scene, but I think often about my fond memories from that time, so many of which he was a part of. His loss is an immense tragedy, and my heart goes out to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.

Bridgett, mom passes on her condolences to you and your family. She is thinking of you at this difficult time. Wishes she could have visited.

I am so sorry for your loss, I know no words can express the heartbreak you are dealing with but I hope you can find comfort in the many memories you shared with your son.

The galaxy lost one of its brightest stars whit you friend. I hope you feel how much you’ve inspired us all as you walk with us just past the veil. Safe travels and god tidings Noah. I wish you nothing but peace.

Dearest Noah,

You came into our lives and brought so much joy, happiness and love. You lit up a room with your presence, with your kindness, your smile, your sense of humor, and the passion you showed for life. We have all been better for having you in our lives and that will be your legacy. We didn’t see each other for such a long time, but you have always been with us in our hearts, and that’s where you will remain for eternity. Go and light up all the hearts in heaven, light up all the rooms in heaven, light up spirits in heaven, and if we are lucky, we will join you there some day. I hope the heavens know the gift they are receiving, and I hope the angels know what a beautiful spirit is joining them. It’s so hard to say goodbye, so rest in peace our beautiful boy. We love you and will always feel your presence as we always have.

My daughters went to school with Noah. Two of them were involved in improv with him. I watched him play many times but, whenever his name comes up, I think of one scene in particular he did at Improv Games a few years back. Maybe others who were there will remember it too. The location was “on the moon.” Noah improvised placing a flag, saying “one small step for mankind”, then turned and placed another saying “one giant step for…..something else.” Everyone roared with laughter, and that is how I will always remember Noah – his facial expressions, his huge smile and his wonderful gift for improvisation and making people laugh. My heart is hurting for your loss, and I can’t imagine what you are going through now, but I hope it brings some comfort to know memories like this, that so many people have of Noah, will always bring a smile to our faces. Deepest condolences from the Ruddock family.

My sincere condolences to you Brigitte ,Johnathan and your family on the loss of Noah. Thinking of you at this difficult time.


Although, I did not know your son my hearts breaks for you. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your family. I will keep you in my prayers.

I didn’t know Noah well, but at times we crossed paths & friendgroups mingled, and he was always very kind and welcoming. An energetic & friendly guy with a bright aura is how I’ll remember him. Sending my condolences to you all.

Most genuine, sweetest dude. Very sad too hear this news.. you brought light and happiness too any atmosphere you were in Noah buddy. Always had everyone laughing with a smile.
Rest easy brother ❤️

Brigitte, John, friends and family,

Noah was such a lovely and older soul who brightened the days of all who he came into contact with during my time at St. Paul’s Junior High. My thoughts and prayers go out to you during this very difficult time. His inclusive nature and kindness will never be forgotten.

Brigitte and Family. We were shocked and saddened to hear of Noah’s passing., please accept our deepest condolences .you are in our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

A few years ago I met a really nice, sincere, friendly,,charismatic young man at one of my daughter Hannah’s improv shows . It was this guy called Noah. My daughter spoke to me yesterday and told me of a friend that had passed, it was the same lovely kid I met then. I immediately remembered the 30 minute conversation I had with him… his junior high school, his favourite skits, even that like my own son, he was a huge gamer! Sometimes I can remember what I did yesterday, but managed to remember the impression I was left with with this guy Noah. To the family and friends of Noah I send my sincere condolences.

Dear Brigitte and Family, So very sorry to hear about the passing of your precious son. May the Almighty grant him a peaceful afterlife.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your beautiful son and brother. I had the great privilege of getting to know Noah a little when he coached my son Ian Williams in Improv at Holy Heart and they went away for Nationals. He had a huge impact on Ian and my other son Matthew through Improv and graduated with my third son, Noah. His quiet, funny, accepting, kind, generous, open personality shone through when he was acting and coaching. When you have the space you will read so many social media posts about Noah and the impact he had on others and I pray that will bring a small measure of comfort to you.

Brigitte and family. So terribly sorry to hear of Noah’s passing.. I can’t imagine how hard this must be. Our thoughts are prayers are with you all. Cherish the wonderful memories.

Oh, Brigitte, I am overcome with sadness for you and Johnathon, It was always a treat to visit your office and see Noah. Of course, I loved teasing him and running downstairs to bring him some treats from the vending machine. His bright and gorgeous smile oozed with gentleness and warmth. What a wonderful boy, so polite and mannerly. Of course, you couldn’t overlook his handsome looks. This boy was truly loved by you. You are an amazing Mom! He is watching over you now and remembering how great you are. May God give you strength as you treasure your memories. God bless you and Johnathon.

Sending love from Saskatchewan. You touched so many people all over the country. I’ll never forget how accepting and funny you were. You will be missed dearly and I hope wherever you are you’re playing SSBM and making everyone in the area laugh and feel welcome. Rest in power my friend.

Brigitte and family. I am profoundly sorry to hear of Noah’s passing and I am completely heartbroken for you all. Please know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers now and in the coming days ahead.

Brigitte’ and Family,

Thinking of you all at this incredibly difficult time.

Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear Family Member. We are all thinking of you and hoping you find strength, and peace in the days ahead. Memories of Noah ,will live on in your hearts. Forever.

Hugs to you all!❤️

I am so sorry to hear of your immeasurable loss. Sending my deepest condolences, along with prayers for strength and comfort as you walk this difficult road.

Brigitte I am so sorry to hear this, he was such a sweet boy from when I remember him. I am truly sorry

My heart goes out to you and your family. My sincerest condolences.

noah was always very kind to me in high school, and i can’t really say that about too many people. Noah was kind to me because he was kind to, and friends with, anyone and everyone in between. He treated everyone the exact same, with kindness and light.

My condolences to your family in such a difficult time. may his legacy of love, laughter, and light continue on.

Brigitte and family – my sincerest condolences on the sudden loss of your beloved Noah.

Dear Bridget and family. My heart aches for you on the passing of Noah. I cannot begin to imagine the sorrow and grief you are feeling. Cherish your beautiful memories. Sincere condolences
June and Gerry Peckham

I am very sorry for your loss he was such a sweet guy

Brigitte, We are so sorry to hear of Noah’s passing. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Adriana & Gerry

Noah was such a wholesome and vibrant soul. There was never a moment where he didn’t put a smile on someone’s face. I’m so glad that I had the pleasure of knowing Noah. I will forever cherish his kind, energetic, and inclusive personality. My condolences to Noah’s family at this difficult time.

My heart is heavy with the news of Noah’s passing. I wish the best for Noah’s family during these trying times.

Noah was a dear childhood friend of mine and I have many fond memories with him. He will be dearly missed by many and his kind heart touched many more. Some of my fondest memories include going over to Noah’s house during Christmas break and him proudly showing me his new toys. That, and all the fun we had tormenting our friends and teachers in class! If you ask anyone (teachers or students) that went to school with us, they knew Noah was one to always make them laugh. To my regret, in the last couple years I fell out of touch with Noah but I thought about him regularly. The last time we saw each other was a couple of years ago when we went swimming with friends at The Paul Reynolds Center.

I will cherish the many memories I have with Noah forever.

I have no words Brigitte, I know how much you loved him💕. I’m so sorry to hear this sad news today, I am here for you always! Keep your memories close to your heart where he will always remain 🥰

Hi there – I was one of Noah’s Improv coaches in junior high. He was such a funny and bright student, I can remember countless times that he made me laugh so hard I almost fell over. His sense of humour was unbelievably intelligent even back then, and I know it only developed further with time. It’s heartbreaking that this has happened; I am not in Newfoundland anymore, otherwise I would have paid my respects in person. Know that even far away, Noah is being mourned and missed and celebrated.
