Memorial Park Cemetery – Noah’s Ark
Memorial Park Cemetery’s Noah’s Ark section houses hundreds of bronze animals ranging from gorillas and giraffes, with one notable newcomer – a 700lb bronze camel – recently added.
Mark and Vikki moved to a smaller town shortly after their son died, but still come together on Memorial Day to remember him.
Early Life and Education
Many members of Noah’s family are interred here. Additionally, several descendants have taken an active part in maintaining and chronicling its history.
James Hillhouse took great pleasure in planting trees; his plantings gave New Haven its nickname of “Elm City”. Over time, however, severe ice storms and high winds have damaged or killed many older shrubs and trees, particularly old elms; these have since been replaced by evergreen varieties.
Noah Webster (1758-1843) was an esteemed lexicographer and dictionary publisher. He published An American Dictionary of the English Language and visited Washington D.C. to advance copyright laws, while dined with President Andrew Jackson himself. Noah Webster could trace his maternal lineage back to colonial Connecticut via colonial Connecticut families – his remains lie buried alongside his wife and children at Grove Street Cemetery in West Hartford Connecticut.
Noah cemented himself into French sports history by winning the French Open men’s singles tournament a few years back, and still makes fans of a certain age smile when they hear his name today.
He was a man of many talents and passions; from tennis to law. A devoted family man and willing to help anyone in need, he always found time for anyone in need.
Noah enjoyed welding and traveling to new places. Even while sick, Noah always maintained an upbeat outlook that inspired others. On April 12th 2023 – at 39 – he bravely battled Glioblastoma cancer at home with family by his side until finally succumbing in April at his residence surrounded by loved ones. His survivors include both parents and four children.
Achievement and Honors
Family, friends and fellow officers of Elwood Police Officer Noah Shahnavaz lined up outside Crown Hill Cemetery Saturday for his burial service. A procession began at ITOWN Church before stopping off at Elwood PD for his 10-42 call before ending up at Crown Hill with both military and police honor guards paying their final respects as he entered.
He was known as the go-to guy for anything that needed fixing or taking care of in his family, friends and neighborhood. Additionally, he had an unquenchable thirst for adventure and enjoyed all sports, especially his beloved Minnesota Twins.
His parents described him as kind and generous; he enjoyed helping those struggling in life and was the ideal candidate to become an Army Ranger.
Noah Isaac Chambers was an adoring son and brother to his family. He attended Rockingham Middle School and belonged to ITOWN Church; in his free time he enjoyed hiking and playing games – but most importantly his deep bond with Phoenix, his beloved pet dog, was something special.
Mark and Laurie mourn their son’s death with great grief, so they have decided to honor his legacy by donating his organs so other children may benefit from life-saving transplants.
Family has established a memorial fund in their son’s honor that will donate proceeds to organizations providing foster and abused child services, administered by the Noah Chambers Foundation. Part of these funds may also go toward organizations which he loved and supported during his life.
Noah boasts a substantial bank balance thanks to his acting career and other lucrative gigs like product endorsement. Additionally, his YouTube channel provides him with additional income streams.
Noah currently boasts an estimated net worth of around $3 Million, though this should increase as he replaces Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.
The Noah Ralph-Jamieson Memorial Fund aims to support charities whose overall missions echo what Noah valued, such as food banks, LGBTQ support services and animal shelters.
Funeral arrangements and additional information can be found on the funeral home website, along with a memorial page where you can leave a note for their family. Thank you.
