Born to Louis and Ida in Paterson. Nochimson served in the U.S. Coast Guard during World War 2, and after serving, he played in the ABL. He was also a part owner of the Paterson Crescents. He was a childhood friend of baseball Hall of Fame outfielder Larry Doby, a friendship the lastest until Doby's death.

Interesting news story I found about Nochimson. Around 1938, he was working as a gas station attendant when he noticed two of his customers fit the description of a couple of men who had committed hold-ups nearby. He called the police and then stalled while tending to the criminal's car, allowing the police enough time to arrive and arrest them.
