Joseph E. Nolet of Tyngsboro

Joseph Emery Nolet of Tyngsboro, 60, lost his five year battle with Alzheimers on Sunday October 13, 2019 surrounded by loved ones at the High Pointe Hospice House.

He was the beloved husband of Cheryl Nolet (Ahern) with whom he just celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on October 3rd. He was born in Lowell, MA on June 14, 1959 and was the son of the late Edward and Ethel Nolet. He graduated from Chelmsford High School with the class of 1978. Joe was the proud owner of Nolet Brothers Landscaping of Tyngsboro, MA for over 30 years.  He was a communicant of St. John the Evangelist Church in Chelmsford. He enjoyed golfing, bowling and was an avid fan of the Patriots, Red Sox, and Nascar Racing.

More than anything, Joe loved spending time with family and friends, whether it was relaxing at his lake house in New Hampshire or on a beach in Aruba, he was always the life of the party.

Besides his wife, he leaves his daughter Meagan and her husband, Ryan Dolan as well as his two cherished grandchildren, Shea and Emma. He is also survived by his son Nicholas Nolet and was excited to be welcoming a new grand-daughter in January.

In addition he leaves 4 brothers; Edward and his wife Judy Nolet, Robert “Bubz” and his wife Milllie Nolet, Rick and his wife Diane Nolet, Jim and his wife Berny Nolet; and his late brother, David Nolet who passed away earlier this year. He also leaves behind his 3 sisters; Sheila and her husband Ed Lisavich, Sharon and her husband Bob Campbell, Paula and her husband Steve Ellis. Joe always thought of the Ahern family as his own and had a loving relationship with each of them that began over 45 years ago when he first met Cheryl. In addition, he leaves his sister-in-law, Jean Fielding and spouse Patti White; 3 brothers-in-law, Dan and his wife Sarah Ahern,
Brian and his wife Christine Ahern, Todd and his wife Heather Ahern; and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his father-in-law, Philip Ahern and had a special love for his late mother-in-law Janet “Jammy”, who passed away in 2011. Joe will be greatly missed by family and friends alike. He had a truly unique way of connecting with anyone he met and had the most generous heart. He worked hard to provide such a wonderful life for his family and lived every day without regret.

    Joe was such a warm, loving, giving person, who will be greatly missed. Right from the beginning, I always joked with Joe, calling him my other son, because he was so much like my son Peter. I had a special affection for Joe. Cheryl & Joe’s love for each other, even after all these years, was so special & inspirational. As long as Joe is in our heart’s he will always be with us. 💜😢

    I sent to you my most heartfelt condolences in the passing of Joe. My memories are fond when I recall his happy go lucky nature and always reaching out a helping hand.

    I have known Joey and Cheryl for years (before high school, I believe). I can not imagine 5 years of this disease, I have been an RN on a secure unit since changing professions. I give Cheryl and the entire family more kudos than then most people can imagine! The unconditional love and commitment that you all shared keeping Joey at home where he was on his familiar surroundings. I pray that the memories of Joey through all the years helps you keep him near in your heart! Love, Elsine Lagasse

    Cheryl and family,

    My Parents and I were saddened to hear of Joe’s passing. We know it’s been a tough few years for you. Our hearts go out to all of your family. I am so sorry you had to go through all of this. May all the fun and loving memories of Joe always warm your hearts and make you smile whenever you think of him. I know you have many great memories because I see all your great pictures on FB.

    I am in VT with my parents as my mother fell on Sept 10 and has been in the hospital since. She has been through several surgeries and just a lot. She was finally moved to rehab yesterday where they will hopefully get her back on her feet. She has been left in bed too long for one reason or another. She has not missed a beat since her fall had when I heard about Joe’s passing, I told her. She asked me to reach out for her and my Dad.

    Sending Hugs to all xxxxxooooo,

    To The Nolet Family–

    I am so sorry for your loss. From one North Chelmsford boy to another, I used to run into Joe at Nab Lake CC or occasionally at the Fletcher club with his brother-in-law Brian. He always had a smile and a good word to say. He will be missed.
