My Grandfather was one of a kind. He loved playing a good practical joke or scaring the hell out of you with his driving. He loved his family just as much as he loved cleanliness. There’s a bunch of napkins smiling down on you, grandpa. His sense of humor was unmatched. Whether it was a joke or a prank on someone, it was always hilarious. Thanks for retiring the grandma’s bra joke before it became too stale. You always left great memories and memorable impressions. Always appreciated having pasta and coke a cola at 9 am for breakfast whenever we visited. Never left on an empty stomach. Loved breaking your chops whenever the Yankees beat the Rays, although that’s changed the last few seasons. You were truly one of a kind. We’ll all miss you dearly. You’re my bubba!

Love,

Joe, Jen, Nicholas, and Olivia

Marianne, as I sit here at my desk, I am greatly saddened by the news . It is always hard to find words to express condolences in the loss of a loved one. I share a strong and emotional response of grief and sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and each of the people that your father touched their hearts.

I wish you and your family all the peace and blessings of our Lord in the days ahead.

Mrs. Nobile and family, we wanted to express our sincerest condolences. Ariane and I have so many fond memories of when we were much younger (teenagers) and worked with you during your catering days back in NY. As you remember I (Kenny) was a dishwasher and Ariane was a waitress along with Marianne and Lynn. Gosh that kitchen got hot! Ugh, How I hated cleaning those big black pans the Prime Ribs were cooked in :-). I remember the assembly line in the kitchen when we were putting the meals/plates together to go out to the guests. Who can forget Joe's golden voice when he sang "Daddy's Little Girl" at the weddings. I always looked forward to that. Who would have thought that 40+ years ago in a kitchen at a Knights of Columbus in Oyster Bay we were making memories that would last a lifetime. God bless you and the Nobile family. Keeping you close to our hearts and in our prayers. The Cornelius'

Dear Uncle Joe-thank you for a lifetime of childhood memories filled with laughter, interesting stories, fabulous food, close knit cousins adventures, warm family fun, outdoor athletic games, all-night Christmas Eve games that started after our eight course banquet, reminiscing about the old days, and lots of joking around. A unique extended family life never to be duplicated. You were huge part of this wonderful family legacy along with Aunt Jo, Aunt Jo and Uncle Angelo, and my mom and dad. It was all so special. My cousins would all agree.
Love always, Terry
