February 23, 2000

Victor Edwin Noon Jr., a retired Internal Revenue Service agent and lifelong baseball enthusiast, died Saturday of heart failure at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. He was 75.

The former Argonne Drive resident, who had lived in Ocean City since 1989, retired from the IRS in 1979, where he had been an agent since the early 1950s.

Born and raised in West Baltimore, Mr. Noon was a student at Polytechnic Institute in the early 1940s, where he played baseball and was a left-handed power hitter and first baseman. Drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, he later played Triple-A ball for Montreal before ending his career in 1946.

After serving in the Army from 1948 to 1949, he graduated from Baltimore College of Commerce, where he studied accounting.

He remained active in sports, playing fast-pitch softball during the 1950s and '60s for Baltimore industrial leagues. He later coached Catholic Youth Organization baseball and soccer teams for St. Bernard Roman Catholic Church, including some of the first integrated teams in the city, family members said.

He was married in 1950 to Mary Anne Dempsey, who died in 1988.

He was a communicant of St. Luke Roman Catholic Church in Ocean City.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 9 a.m. today at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, Route 40 and St. Agnes Lane, Catonsville.

He is survived by three sons, Patrick D. Noon of Alexandria, Va., Timothy K. Noon of Baltimore and Terence M. Noon of Frankford, Del.; two brothers, John Noon of Ellicott City and Robert Noon of Bel Air; and three sisters, Alice Noon Kennedy of Owings Mills, Joan Noon Kirkwood of Ellicott City and Patricia Noon Kope of Florissant, Mo.
