Rofoli, Noel A.
My beloved husband, Noel A. Rofoli, age 75, left us on June 22, 2020 from our home of 33 years in Laguna Niguel, CA surrounded by his wife, Mary, and children, Patrick and Elizabeth.
Noel was born in Papaikou, HI, to his parents Demetrio and Conchita Rofoli. In 1961, Noel’s family moved to Long Beach, where he graduated in 1963 from Wilson High School. He then enlisted in the USAF and became a Sergeant serving 1 1/2 years in the Vietnam War during 1965-1967. Upon release from active duty, he joined the Santa Ana Police Department. After 11 years on the force, he changed careers to the composite distribution business, becoming the California District Manager with North American Composites until his retirement in 2015. Noel and I exchanged wedding vows on August 1, 1981 in Newport Beach. We shared much joy during our 38 years of marriage. My husband enjoyed many passions including golfing, sailing and spending time with his family. Noel is predeceased by his parents and 2 children, Kimberly and Dimitri. He is survived by his siblings, Dennis, Corliss Houston, and Stanley, 6 nieces and nephews. He is beloved by my family of many brothers, sisters in-law, nieces, nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews.
