In 1957 while in the Navy, Noel introduced me to his cousin Sigrid and Floyd County, I immediately fell in love with both. We have remained friends those many years since and he was my go-to guy with answers to my questions, from guns to cooking and all in between. He will be missed.

I loved visiting with Noel on his front porch. The company, the view and the hummingbirds. I will always think of him when they visit at my house. He will be missed.
