Bobby Noah was a lifelong member of the Duke/Wellington community. At an early age, he began working in the cattle barns, herding livestock for sale. Bobby became a very successful cattle trader quickly. He was known for his ability to gauge the weight and value of a cow upon sight. At sixteen years old he began hauling cattle and hogs for his father to sales in Montgomery and Tennessee. Spending his entire life around cattle, horses, hogs, and many other animals - he became widely known for his amateur
Bobby enlisted in the army and spent three years at Fort Lewis, in Washington. He endured monthly name drawings for deployment in Vietnam - and was never chosen. After the war Bobby returned home and eventually began to work for M&H Valve. In the mid 1980’s he went to work for Bynum, where he retired in 2005.
Bobby Noah was a tough man, a cowboy through and through. Bobby spent the last 18 years doing exactly what he wanted to do - taking care of his family, team pinning, and horseback riding. Whether he was tending to his pasture, his horses, his garden, his family or friends - he dedicated himself tirelessly to every task he took on. Bobby wasn’t one to be idle, he was always looking for a project to take on, or somebody to boss around. The only exception to this was when the Alabama Crimson Tide or the Atlanta
Braves were playing - and even then, he kept himself busy by assuming the Head Coach position from his recliner.
Bobby Noah was well known for his “no-nonsense” demeanor and undeniable ability to always be right. He wasn’t easy to impress, but earning his approval was a badge of honor and not to be taken lightly. His expectations were high for others because he held himself to even higher expectations. He was an incredible husband, Dad, and Papa. He was the best provider, leader, and supporter to his loved ones.
His daughters will remember him as their rock, always there when they needed him, and his grandchildren will remember him as the man who knew Rawhide and Bloody Bones and the man that could do it all. He will always be known as the best splinter-getter-outer, on-call handyman, storyteller, fixer of all things, and teacher of all the ways that things ought to be done. Bobby Noah, a man who was down-to-earth, hardworking, and genuine as they come, leaves behind a legacy that will always be remembered by those who were lucky enough to know him. His wit, wisdom, and contagious laugh will be remembered immensely.
