In Loving Memory

Noyes, James Thomas

November 30, 1946 - December 27, 2023

James Thomas Noyes, 77, passed away peacefully on December 27, 2023 at DeGreeff Hospice House in St. Louis, MO. He was born on November 30, 1946 to James L and Ruth Noyes in St. Louis, MO.

Jim was a kind soul and a great father, husband, brother, son, uncle and friend. During his younger years, he achieved the honor of 1st Lieutenant and played the clarinet and tuba in the marching band at Christian Brothers College High School, and subsequently spent many hard working years as a Logistics Manager.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Jim was known as a “gentle giant” and approached life with his signature kindness and sense of humor, which he maintained through his final days. Jim was a life-long music enthusiast, sports guru, traveler and foodie. He found much joy in his role as Deacon during his later years at South County Baptist Church.

Jim is preceded in death by his parents, James L and Ruth Noyes, his beloved wife, Linda Noyes, sister-in-law Linda Walters, and dear brothers-in-law Larry Walters and Dan Latina. He is survived by his daughter Tara Noyes (Katie Hazelwonder), sister Carole Latina, nieces Stephanie Latina, Angela (Darrin Jr, Dominic) Harmon, and Lisa (Scott; Autumn, Aiden) Gamel.

A Memorial Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 from 12-2pm with a Memorial Service at 2 p.m. at Kutis Funeral Home South County, celebrating the life of Jim and his wife, Linda, who passed in 2020. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to DeGreeff Hospice House at Mercy South Hospital.

Jim’s memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He will be deeply missed.

  1. Jim and his wife, Linda were close neighbors and good friends.
    When we would see them, in church on Sunday morning, Linda would say, “I need a hug”, and we exchanged hugs. Jim just gave a warm smile and a handshake.
    When Linda died, December, 2020, Jim tried to busy himself with church services, events, etc. It was sad to see him graduate from walking cane to crutch to wheelchair. He continued to faithfully attend church and greet everyone with a smile. Then came time in “rehab” . We visited and Glenna made cookies, which he said he enjoyed. After three ‘earth years’, Jim & Linda are together again, in Heaven.
    We are thankful for the care given to him at Mercy Hospital and the Fern & Russsell de Greff Hospice House.

  2. James. Rest in peace Big Guy. I enjoyed working with you at ISC in the 1980’s and 1990’s. I especially enjoyed our trips to Las Vegas to see numerous heavy weight boxing matches. You will be missed. ARK
