Melrose- Kurt L. Noyes, 68, formerly of Tomhannock and more recently Melrose, died peacefully, Monday, June 27, 2022 at the Eddy Heritage House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Troy, following a long illness.
Born in Troy, at the former Leonard Hospital on November 3, 1953, Kurt is the son of the late Carl Noyes and Helen I (Amidon) Noyes of Valley Falls who survives.
Kurt attended Hoosic Valley Central School.
As a young man, his career began as a production worker for over 10 years at the Oak Mitsui Manufacturing Company in Hoosick Falls. More recently, he worked as an automotive mechanic at several area garages and service stations before retiring in 2010.
In his quiet time Kurt enjoyed fishing when he could, attending local car shows and spending quality time with his family and friends. He considered himself to be “a homebody” and was content to work on projects he could help his family or neighbors with. One of his most proud moments was when pictures and the story of the 1969 Pontiac Bonneville that he owned and restored, was the feature article in the nationally recognized Hemming’s Motor News magazine.
In addition to his mother, Helen, Kurt is survived by a son, Christopher Noyes of Saratoga and a daughter, Stephanie Cashdollar of Duanesburg, three sisters, Tina Bruns of Valley Falls, Lisa Bruns of Johnsonville and Nancy Harrington of Mechanicville, his former wife and special friend, Pam Noyes, five grandchildren, a nephew and three nieces. In addition to his late father, Kurt was predeceased by a brother, the late Neil Noyes.
A graveside committal service will be held at the convenience of the family. At Kurt’s request there will be no public calling.
