Noel Warde

Noel (24.12.1940 – 24.08.2013) is remembered here with love and thanks.

Friends and family can access Noel’s photo archive here.

He was a much-loved husband to Brenda, father to Stephen and Paul, and grandfather to Ella, Martha, Kirsty, and Finn.

He taught for more than 40 years, initially at St Malachy’s College, Belfast and, since 1972, at St Mary’s R.C. High School, Hereford – where he was Deputy Headmaster for over two decades.

He was a fine footballer in his younger days, gaining a youth cap for Northern Irelamd, and turning out, among others, for Queen’s University Belfast and Coleraine F.C. He kept up his love of sport throughout his life – the photograph is from his time as Captain of Herefordshire Golf Club.

Noel lies at rest in the beautiful graveyard at Belmont Abbey, Hereford – one of his interests during his retirement was cataloguing the graveyard. Another was charting our family tree.
