Photography, music, travel, nature — firefighter paramedic Raymond (Tim) Nobes knew extensively about all those subjects — and much more, said his friend and colleague Tony Cerulli.
Nobes, 57, died June 22 after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. The Newtown resident was a married father of four who graduated from Danbury High School and was a U.S Army veteran.
He worked for the Ridgefield Fire Department for 20 years before retiring in 2021, in addition to serving as an on-staff paramedic for the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department for nearly two decades where he was awarded honorary chief in May 2022, according to his obituary.
Cerulli, a captain in the Ridgefield Fire Department, said Nobes was knowledgeable about many topics.
