He was a graduate of Pleasantville High School, class of 1946.

Mr. Nosker was a veteran of World War II and of the Korean Conflict. He entered the U.S. Army at Pittsburgh on June 4, 1946, and was honorably discharged on Nov. 5, 1947, at Ft. McPherson, Ga., with the rank of corporal. He immediately re-enlisted and was honorably discharged on March 21, 1952.

He enjoyed traveling to casinos with his friends, poker being his game of choice. He also enjoyed his many mornings having coffee at the local McDonald’s with friends, and his time spent at the YMCA. One of his hobbies was woodworking and he made many bird feeders, chairs, stools, etc., for his loved ones.
