Darius Sepehr Noori, Pharm.D. M.D. (1950-2016) Dr. Darius “Doc” Noori, age 65, a resident of Acampo, Calif., moved on to his next great adventure on Sunday, May 15, 2016. He was born August 5, 1950 in Shiraz, Iran. In 1965, at the age of 15, Doc came to the United States to pursue his higher education. He managed this with the encouragement of his father, and the assistance of the U.S. Ambassador. After studying Chemical Engineering, then Geology, Doc went on to complete his PharmD at University of the Pacific in 1977. He then earned his M.D. in 1984 from Ross University, and went on to specialize in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. He settled in Lodi in 1993. Doc was an avid traveler, skier, sailor, motorcyclist, bicyclist, SCUBA diver, sports car enthusiast, and licensed pilot. He loved adventure, and was always planning his next trip to the far points of the globe. It was on a ski trip to Mammoth Mountain in 1989 that he met his wife, Nancy Little. With family members, his best friend Ivan, and various friends in tow, he visited Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Monaco, Nepal, the Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, North and South Vietnam, Venezuela, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Turkey, Vatican City, and all three Guyanas. He also visited Bosnia, Mexico and Yugoslavia as a member of Doctors Without Borders. He has trekked to the base camp on Mount Everest twice. The second time was in 2015 when the earthquake occurred, and he had already purchased tickets for a third trip this September. Doc remains a legend among his friends and acquaintances—not only for his travels or his accomplishments, but for his integrity, generosity, and joy of life. He will be missed, but more importantly he will be remembered as a man who lead by example how a life should truly be lived. He is preceded in death by his father Colonel Mansour Sephernoori and mother Zam Zam Soleimani. He is survived by his wife, Nancy Little, his daughters Brenley and Daria, and his sons Jake and Austin, as well as his brother Kamy and sisters Pari and Maheen Sephernoori. A celebration of his life will take place at 11AM on Friday May 20, 2016, at Oak Farm Vineyards. Doc Noori will be interred in a private ceremony at Lake Tahoe, where he enjoyed skiing with his friends and family. In lieu of flowers and cards, the family requests donations be made to the charity of your choice.
