Joseph "Quint" C. Noyes V

February 3, 2000June 25, 2020

Joseph Cobham Noyes V, known to everyone as “Quint” passed away suddenly on Thursday June 25th 2020. Quint was notorious for his charisma, humor, positivity and genuine love of people. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and spent his childhood in Hartford, CT attending the Renbrook School. He enjoyed spending his summers with his paternal grandmother in Madison, CT at the Madison Beach Club and in Quebec at Lake Memphremagog with his maternal grandparents. Quint’s friendships spread far and wide. He went on to graduate from the Pomfret School in Pomfret, CT and had completed his freshman year at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY. Always on the move, Quint took pride in a variety of activities including lacrosse, soccer, squash, tennis, and golf. He had a hunger for speed and adventure, which fueled his love for skiing. Quint possessed great artistic talent and was also refining his skills in the kitchen. Breakfast was his specialty. Above all, Quint’s greatest passion was bringing joy to the people he shared his experiences with. Quint’s authenticity was remarkable. He had the ability to make anyone laugh, by simply being himself. A fiercely loyal friend with a contagiously bright spirit, Quint was the life of any party and loved by all.

Dear Laurie, Sarah and Wayne,
We have no words to express our deepest feelings of sorrow at this most devastating moment. One can only hold wonderful memories of happy times spent together and faith that Clint is still always with you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I am often reminded of a favorite passage in The Little Prince. “We only see with our heart... That which is essential is invisible to our eyes”.

With love

Quint brought a lightness to our writing class each and everyday this last fall, and his classmates at Hobart and William Smith valued his sense of humor, his curiosity, and his friendship. He offered to us a way of thinking that was full of life and we got to know him through the questions he asked. His warm voice and personality came through in his writing, and during our class discussions he always expressed himself as a young man of a genuine heart, funny and engaging to everyone in our classroom.

I'm so, so saddened to learn of his passing, and his peers at HWS will surely miss his gentle and joyous way in the world.

Quint was a friend to everyone he met. His smile, laugh, humor, and energy were always contagious. From the first day we became friends at Renbrook he stuck by my side no matter what and he showed me what it was to be a loyal friend. Having two more years of school together at Pomfret was truly a blessing. Every memory I think of with Quint revolves around laughter. Reading comments from teachers and friends who all shared the same love for him is so special. Quint will forever be in our hearts and memories as the most fun loving & genuine friend. I love you Q. Fly high.

I’m grateful to have known Quint during his time at Pomfret School. I’ll remember his good humor, kindness, honest innocence, his lack of pretension, and unfailing gratitude. While heartbroken at the loss, I take some comfort in knowing and experiencing all the joy Quint shared with me, my family, and our community. Godspeed.

Quint was a true joy to teach in my astronomy classes at Pomfret. His positive energy, ever present smile, and great sense of humor made each class better. He often asked good questions about the 'deep questions' and had an innate spark of curiosity.

Quint had the ability to warm every heart encountered and brighten any room he entered. Quint's warm smile and energy reminded everyone to not take themselves too seriously while still being able to present their best self always. Wings were gained way too soon but we know Quint is smiling brightly from above. Memories of times shared will remain in our hearts forever. Prayers of strength and healing to family and friends as we remember Quint's life.
