Noah Taylor Peters, 11, a sixth-grade student at Thorne Middle School in Middletown, died suddenly at home on March 5th. Born in Red Bank, Noah lived in Middletown his whole life.

Noah had a sweetness and big-heartedness about him that was so endearing. He loved meeting new people, and no one was a stranger for long. There was no age barrier if Noah was interested in engaging with you. He loved his family and liked giving them gifts, especially homemade ones.

Noah was fortunate that he lived in a place that’s close to the water. He loved going to the beach and swimming in the waves, learning to surf, and beachcombing for shells and other treasures on the shore. He also enjoyed fishing and crabbing with his grandfathers and kayaking with his grandmother.

Noah was fascinated by nature and comfortable with it. He thrilled at the opportunity to hold a tarantula at the Bug Museum and liked picking up bugs, to everyone’s horror. He enjoyed watching birds at the bird feeder through binoculars, and relished helping with garden chores like planting, weeding and pruning.

Noah had boundless energy and liked riding his bike, scooter, and skateboard and playing soccer. He loved watching daredevil feats on YouTube and dreaming of someday being able to match those accomplishments. He enjoyed helping in the kitchen and learning how to bake and cook, and liked to draw and paint and attend Doodle Dude’s classes at the Middletown Arts Center.

Noah is much loved by his family, including his parents, Colin and Jill Peters, and his siblings, Trevor and Haleigh; his grandparents Tom and Rosemarie Peters and Bill and Linda Zdep; two aunts, Jennifer Van Berkel and Gabrielle (husband Russell) Mester, and two cousins, Dylan and Chloe Van Berkel.

Visitation is on Wednesday, March 10, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St., Red Bank. There will be a private service for Noah. Donations in Noah’s memory may be made to the Middletown Arts Center, 36 Church St., Middletown 07748.
