David A. Noyle of Leesburg, Florida, originally from South Abington Township, Pennsylvania, passed away at home on July 27, 2017 after a long and courageous health battle, surrounded by his immediate Family.
Dave was born in Scranton, PA on November 14, 1947 and was preceded in death by his Father Thomas Noyle and his Mother Ethel New Noyle. The love of his life and best friend, his Wife Diana Kutyla Noyle and Dave were married for almost 48 years. Dave was the proud Father of Son David Noyle and his Wife Karen of East Norriton, PA, Daughter Diana Jelski and Husband Jan of Phoenixville, PA and Daughter Denise Kovatch and Husband Brian of Gilbertsville, PA. He and Diana have been blessed with 13 wonderful Grandchildren: Alexander, Andrew and Victoria Noyle; Regina, Ania, Jozef, Mateusz, Zofia, Matylda, Agnieszka and Tomasz Jelski; Zack and Kate Kovatch.
He was a graduate of Abington Heights High School’s Class of 1965 and a proud veteran of the U.S. Army. Dave’s passion was helping others as a second generation member of the Chinchilla Hose Company since 1961. He saved many lives as a volunteer fireman/fire policeman and helped the positive evolution of the hose company through the many leadership positions he held (President, Board of Trustees Member, Junior Firemen Advisor, etc…).
Dave’s employment history is lengthy from running heavy machinery for Lomeo Excavating in the early 1970’s through his years with Spatt Oil Company where he delivered home heating oil and supplied gasoline and motor oil to stations throughout Northeastern PA, to ultimately running the business in the mid 1980’s. In 1987 Dave decided to bet on himself when he turned his camping hobby into a business known as Cozy Campers RV Sales & Service. With the support of his Wife Diana and Children, he successfully ran his business for close to a decade. Dave then led the charge in helping to open up a brand new Sam’s Club in Dickson City in the mid 1990’s as a beloved and admired retail manager until his retirement in 2007. Post his retirement, Dave enjoyed driving a trolley at Lake In Wood RV Resort for families who enjoyed the camping lifestyle as he did.
He was a country boy at heart, growing up next to a farm on Scott Road where he learned to trick ride horses and once infamously rode a cow only to severely fracture his elbow when the cow decided to drop him off at the conclusion of his ride. He enjoyed watching NASCAR, football & crime dramas and his ideal diet consisted of Armetta’s pizza, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, french fries with Heinz Ketchup, Welsh cookies, chocolate ice cream shakes, M&Ms and coffee.
Dave and Diana loved spending time together in their many travel adventures. From trips north of the border in Canada, throughout the wine country of the Finger Lakes, to numerous beach communities up and down the Atlantic and Gulf coasts to ultimately becoming permanent residents at Hawthorne at Leesburg in Florida.
Our hearts are broken due to Dave’s passing but through our faith we are confident that he is in a much better place in God’s great kingdom, surrounded by Family and friends who previously passed and welcomed him to his eternal life.
Diana and her Children personally thank all of our Family & Friends for your thoughts and prayers through Dad’s many health battles over the last sixteen years. Dave’s Wife Diana has been brave throughout all of his health struggles and selflessly released him so he could pass on into heaven. His Son David was responsible for all of the gray hair on Dave’s head and provided much needed levity throughout his health battles. His Daughter Diana has been our Family’s spiritual leader and provided us comfort as we faced many challenges together. Dave’s Daughter Denise sacrificed countless hours, days, weeks and months in support of leading the charge for his medical care (without her steadfast leadership, Dave would not have been able to pull off so many heroic comeback stories).
Dave was a proud yet humble man, who never desired any formal pomp and circumstance. He did not want a traditional funeral but rather for us to have the opportunity to privately grieve and celebrate his life.
In lieu of flowers and gifts, please connect with Dave’s Children on Facebook and they will provide you Diana’s address, as she would love to receive your notes of sympathy and condolence.
