Thomas Noguchi, 81, of Portland, OR passed away peacefully on October 11, 2023, surrounded by his family and loved ones. Tom was born and raised in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii. He graduated from Oregon State University and served in the United States Army for four years, with time spent stationed in Panama. He worked as an electrical engineer at Bonneville Power Administration for 42 years until he retired in 2007.
Tom enjoyed his retired life- golfing with friends, playing with his grandkids, cheering them on at swim meets and soccer games, taking the dogs for long walks, and spoiling them with treats.
Tom will be dearly missed and always remembered.
He is survived by his wife, Merle; children, Kristie (Kawika) and Lindsey (Dave); grandchildren, Kaia and Roman; and sister, Betty. We request all of Thomas’s loved ones join us in celebrating his beautiful life at 1125 SE Madison St, Suite 101, Portland, OR 97214 on November 4th at 2pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Ronald McDonald House in his honor.
