8 September Grand Trustee John Noldan Passes Away September 8, 2018 By The Fraternal Order of Eagles General 0 Brothers and Sisters, It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Grand Trustee John Noldan, 66, of pancreatic cancer. John was a proud and dedicated Eagle, firmly committed to upholding the Ritual and serving the Fraternal Order of Eagles in every way he could. He is survived by his loving wife, Kat, four children and nine grandchildren. Since joining the Eagles in May 1989, John dedicated a large portion of his life to the Order, developing training programs, serving in numerous State and International-level positions, competing in and promoting the Ritual and preserving our history through his advocacy for the Washington State Aerie Museum. In 2013, he was elected Grand Aerie Inside Guard, beginning an ascent through the chairs to Grand Trustee on his path toward a dream of becoming Grand Worthy President, in service of the organization he loved so dearly. John was a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy and spent 41 years working for the Department of Defense at the Bremerton Naval Shipyard. No matter the task, John was always a tremendous representation of our motto “People Helping People” and greatly enjoyed his work in service of the membership as a Grand Aerie Officer. John will be sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers are with his family throughout this difficult time. Information regarding arrangements and cards/flowers for the family will be made available within the coming days.
