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.

In lieu of flowers, donations to The American Legion, Newport Harbor Post 291, 215 15th Street, Newport Beach, CA 92663, Veteran Emergency Assistance Fund, are appreciated.

    Time with Noel was always time well spent. Infectious smile/laugh-great sense of humor. Could talk to Noel about anything/everything. 38 years with my sweetheart sister Mary Joan says a lot. Vietnam vet, ex-cop, superb salesman-a great guy-across the board. Missing you already Noel…big time…

    I truly had many great times sailing and golfing with Noel. I laugh when I recall back in 2003 when Noel came aboard our newly purchased 40-footer and he just was so excited! I am sure that Noel is now sailing on that mega-yacht across the universe and playing on many beautiful golf courses!
    Fair seas and hit-em-straight, my friend!
    My condolences to the Rofoli family.

  3. RIP Noel! Noel was a prince, bright and fun, life-engaging and loving, joyful and spirited.
    We loved all the time we were so fortunate to share with him and Mary!
    Mary, Patrick, and Elizabeth, take comfort in knowing how loved and respected your husband and father was.

    He will be profoundly missed.

    Maile and Bob

  4. I’m sorry to hear if Noel’s passing. I’ve never met him but I’ve heard of him through my late Papa and his brother Tito Deme, Noel’s Dad.
    My deep condolence to you and family.
