Owner/Licensed Funeral Director
Robert C. Noblin, Jr. is 42 years old and originally from Fredericksburg, Virginia. He has been serving the needs of others in funeral service since high school. He purchased Riverside Funeral Home in June of 2005, and immediately found a niche with his musical talent in Belen. Robert began playing piano at age 4, and his talent is used largely in church. He has played and will continue to play for many local churches. Robert is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Belen. He is graduate of Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Atlanta, GA. Robert enjoys playing the piano, karaoke, and being involved in the Valencia County community. He has also served on the Development Board of the University of New Mexico Valencia Campus as well as both the Belen Chamber of Commerce board and the Los Lunas Chamber of Commerce board. He earned his Certified Funeral Service Practitioner designation in 2017 and was also elected as President of the New Mexico Funeral Service Association in 2019.
He has a strong belief in providing honest service at a price comfortable to all and in 2011 made the decision to expand Noblin Funeral Service to include a convenient Los Lunas location. In 2013, he began the process of installing an on-site crematory at the Belen location in order to provide "complete cremation care" to the families he serves.
