Our family had the pleasure of getting to know Noel through my daughter-in-law Cassie, son Philip and Cassie's family. Noel was fun to have at family functions, very personable and full of great stories. I was very extremely impressed with his extensive military background and the multiple branches he served in.

We will miss him!

Sorry for your loss Lorna and Jerry. He was for a while my big brother who took me to New York City as a teen. He was a wonderful guide and put up with a wonder filled girl who had never been to such a big city before. He was tall dark and handsome especially to a sixteen year old teen. When I was a young and broke soon be mother and traveling to your home for Christmas, I avoided all the toll roads from Washington DC to his work in Conn. I think. Anyway he gave me the money to get on the turnpike cutting hours off my travel time. Even though it was only a few dollars, it seemed like a fortune to me.

I will treasure the memories I have of Noel forever. He was a good man who was kind and generous and loving. He was a huge part of our family and will be missed very much. I believe he will live on in our memories and in our hearts and I do hope that he visits me in my dreams.
