Noah R. Huss34, Lititz resident, held master’s of divinity degree

By on March 15, 2012

Noah Huss, 34, of Lititz, formerly of Jarrettsville, Md., passed away the morning of Tuesday, March 6, 2012, as the result of a car accident.

Noah held a bachelor’s degree from Grove City College and a master’s of divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.

While those of us privileged to know Noah feel crippled by this sudden loss, our lives have been undeniably enriched by his conviction, compassion, creativity and humor. His care for others, unassuming intelligence, depth of character, gentleness and ability to bring laughter into any situation made him a wonderful father, husband, brother, son and friend. Noah laid down his life for those he loved, always. He lived passionately and loved generously. Those he left cannot understand why he was taken from us so suddenly, but as Noah himself wrote just last week in a theological conversation, "Really, these things are just too difficult to understand; and I’m comfortable understanding that God is good – always — even if I don’t get it — which is often."

Noah is survived by his wife: Rachel, and his boys: Nathan William Geoffrey, 15, Levi Novi, eight, and Simon Eliot, three months, all of Lititz,; his mother: Dodi Gregory Huss, of Jarrettsville; father: John Theodore, husband of Pamela Huss, of Rising Sun, Md.; brother: Jacob David Huss; and sister: Sarah Grace, wife of Michael Bethke; his in-laws: Anna, wife of Willem Roth, and family; of Toronto, Canada; and many beloved nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents and brother: Aaron B. Huss.

A funeral service was held March 12 at Evans Funeral Chapel & Cremation Services, – Bel Air, Forest Hill, Md. Interment will be private.
