Uncle Noah was always kind to me and so sweet. His devotion to his family was so evident. His warm smile and sense of fun was what made him a great uncle. He will be missed.

Our Hoosier heritage is coming to the end of an era. Uncle Junior as I knew him, my Father-in-Law Earl's youngest brother and Junior to their dad Noah. Though we only met at reunions and funerals I recall he was always cheerful and smiling. We saw our Indiana family last fall and stayed at Red Bud Hills. I cherish those few days with meals and stories of Earl and Noah during the depression. I do picture the reunion in Heave with Earl and Junior. Bet they get a game of Eucher going.

When my husband and I bought our little house in 1972, Noah and Gretchen became much more than builders! They became family. Next door were Danny and Maryanne and eventually, we all had babies and lived as the best of friends and neighbors. Love this family so much. Peace sweet Noah.

Noah was an extraordinary man. He was my father in-law from the time I was17 yrs old, for 41 yrs. A second father, who treated me as as his own. He was generous, kind and always had your back. If you needed something, he was there, you never had to doubt it. I’ll miss him more than I can express, I’ll miss him like my own father, who I lost 18 months ago. It’s a sad day for all who loved him, and I wish love and peace to all the family. RIP Noah, you were loved beyond measure and will be forever missed.

My dear sweet Uncle Noah was the best.....period. There is so much to say about him. I'm not sure where to start. To me, he always had a smile, was witty as can be and was the best listener. He wanted to hear what you had to say, concerned with what was going on in your life, he loved to talk technology and spoke the language well. He loved games and was a joyful competitor. His kind and patient manor was extraordinary. He was an all around good man. I will miss him so much. The world won't be the same without him. I'm grateful to have had summers with Uncle Noah and Aunt Babe as I was growing up. Memorable adventures I'll never forget. After my Aunt passed away, years ago, Uncle Noah and I remained close from a distance. Until we meet again dear Noah. Thank you for everything.

Noah played cards with us at Redbud Hills. He was always in good humor. And, most of the time he won in cards. We were always laughing and had so much fun. I moved from from the third floor in March down to the first floor next door to Noah.
His family gave us some of his furniture, which gives me a feeling that Noah is always with us - my daughter Laura (Lulu) Beikman and me. Thank you so much! God Bless all of you and may all of your memories bring you peace and comfort.

Noah was within one school grade from my Dad, Rex Bruce. He shared memories of Noah with me.
