I want to let you know that my husband, Richard (Dick) Noble, #3469, died on May 12, 2017. I have enclosed his obituary for your information. He entered Royal Roads in Sept. 1951 but did not complete his year. However he maintained his interest to the end and kept in touch with several classmates. I also read your emails. Our oldest son, Peter, entered Royal Roads in 1973 and I’ve always understood that my grandfather went to RMC in the 1890’s.

Yours sincerely,

June Noble
