DENVER, Colorado — Noah Kelly Pfister, 32, passed away unexpectedly on May 4, 2022 in Denver, Colorado. There is nothing that mattered more to Noah than family. In his final days, he reunited his parents and brothers, traveling from around the globe to be by his side.
Noah was born in New York, New York to his adoring parents, Peter Pfister and Monica Kelly. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Port Clyde where Noah spent his first two years surrounded by lobster boats and the beauty of a Maine fishing village that he held so dear throughout his life.
Noah attended Laura Libby and Riley Schools and graduated from Camden Hills Regional High School. He was respected by his teachers for his quick mind and insatiable curiosity. In 2012, he graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maine, majoring in International Relations and French.
Having grown up in Maine, Noah loved winter sports. He was a dedicated hockey player from Peewees through high school. Noah was also an avid snowboarder from a young age, always pushing himself to be faster and more fearless than anyone who had the privilege of riding with him. During his summers in Maine, he lived on the water. His youth was spent sailing and in high school and beyond, Noah could be found on the lakes, cruising around in his boat, waterskiing, wakeboarding and soaking up the sun with his countless friends. He was a devoted New England sports fan – his loyalty to his teams knew no bounds.
From ranching in Wyoming and Australia to teaching in Thailand, Noah was passionate about the variety of occupations he held during his lifetime. His sense of precision and perfection shined in the houses he painted throughout his home state. His dedication to his students in Thailand will live on in their memories.
Noah’s journey was filled with adventures and burdened by struggles. In recent years, he fought the all-to-common battle with addiction that claims the lives of so many around us.
Noah is loved and missed by his parents; his brothers, Angus and Conor; and by the friends and family whose lives he touched.
A gathering to remember Noah is planned for this summer, 2022. Gifts in Noah’s memory can be made to the Midcoast Recovery Coalition, P.O. Box 1002 Camden 04843
