Noel served in the Army as an MP stationed in Germany. He was crazy about his family, especially his granddaughters. Everyone described him as the “Gentle Giant” because of his kind heart, sweet demeanor, and his height. He just loved all people! The world has lost a great man! He was a Deacon at Brookwood Baptist Church and enjoyed ministry there. Noel looked forward to his Heavenly Home.
