Robin Ernest Noftell
It is with great sadness that the family of Robin Noftell of Black River announce his passing, which occurred on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at his residence surrounded by his family at the age of 69. Born on August 3, 1948 in Saint John, he was the son of the late Garfield and Annie (Montieth) Noftell.
Prior to his retirement, Robin was employed as a Pipefitter for just shy of 50 years, a career he truly enjoyed. He was a proud brother of UA Local 213, where many friendships were made. Robin took great comfort in the outdoors and was an avid fisherman. Most of all, he adored his family and treasured the times spent with those he loved.

In addition to his parents, he was also predeceased by Nancy Noftell; daughter in infancy, Carrie; brother, Donald and sisters, June LeBlanc and Audrey "Tootie" Alberts.
