He was a former City Councilman, former County Commissioner, and enjoyed his time as a Radio Host at Magic Q 104.9 Tejano Radio. He was also a West Oso Hall of Fame recipient, a Tejano Roots Hall of Fame broadcaster and a true public servant. David was highly civic minded. As a young boy and man, he was actively involved at Universal Little League as a player, coach, umpire, and officer. He was also involved in local elections especially at Skinner Elementary Precinct 80 and advocated for candidates and issues that improved Nueces County, Corpus Christi, Westside, West Oso, and Molina neighborhood. David was selected as the Molina Veterans Committee Chairman which renamed Laguna Park to Molina Veterans Park and Erected The Molina Veterans Monument in honor of 8 young men that died in the Vietnam War. David protested the Corpus Christi ISD Superintendent's Interviews (No Hispanic or Local Finalists) conducted at a private facility the CC Yacht Club. This meeting was ruled in violation of the Open Meetings Act. The All Anglo Superintendent Finalists withdrew. The new Finalists included three CCISD Hispanic Assistant Superintendents. Ultimately, the first Hispanic Superintendent in CCISD history was selected. As a city councilman, David advocated successfully for Westside infrastructure improvements including streets, curbs, gutters, neighborhood parks, and lighting. He successfully assisted the Westside Baseball Youth Sports and Greenwood Softball Complex improvements with lights, fences, backstops, concessions, turf, etc. He was a strong advocate for The Greenwood Seniors Center, Greenwood-Molina Children's Center, Neighborhood Centers of CC, and The Greenwood Library. David led the successful fight not to privatize the profitable CC Gas Department to keep lower costs for the citizens. He was the lone city council person that proposed to name the entire Bayfront Convention Center Complex for Selena Quintanilla Perez which resulted in the Selena Auditorium. David led a local turned national protest and boycott against Howard Stern and his sponsors because of his demeaning comments about Selena after her death. Stern apologized and the boycott ended. As a county commissioner, David was highly accessible to his Precinct 2 constituents and listened and/or helped any and all Nueces County residents. He voted for the bonds that created the now Fairgrounds and Aviators baseball park. He also pushed for county roads, bridges, drainage, parks, and community centers improvements for the rural areas including Bishop, Banquete, and Agua Dulce.

ADD A MEMORY
Christina Hernandez

My deepest and sincere condolences to all the Noyola family in the passing of a courageous and strong leader of Molina. Those of us who grew up in Molina share a bond that cannot be broken. We are like family. From all that I have learned about David (Bofa) it doesn’t surprise me one bit that he lived his life fighting for the rights of all and for what he believed in. David, Corpus Christi will definitely miss you and especially Molina. Your memory will live on forever, you will never be forgotten. I have no doubt that you will continue to lead in heaven. It’s just you, a leader not a follower. It’s been over forty plus years since I last saw you. However, your many accomplishments were not a secret. I can say I am privileged and honored to have known you. Thank you for taking time to coach our softball team, the “Blue Jays”. David and Eddie Garza put together the team and paid for our uniforms, equipment etc. He always encouraged us to do the very best and never to give up. Lasting impact you have left on thousands of folks. You have gone home to be with our Lord Jesus Christi. It’s ok for you to Rest In Peace now!

Rest In Peace, my Friend. You have completed your journey with honor and much admiration from your community and friends.

I first met David when he was working to change the name of the Molina park to the Molina Veterans Park, as I was then serving as chair of the City Parks Board. His passion was contagious, righteous and could not be denied.

David could be very intense and often people misunderstood his passion for anger. Once at a City Council meeting, Mary Rhodes, our Mayor, asked him what was wrong because he had such a serious look on his face. David told her, much to our humor, "Mayor, this is just the way I look, nothing is wrong."

Ah, David, my friend, you were one of a kind of good men. Rest In Peace, we carry on with thoughts of you, your ideas and leadership.

Sincere condolences to all of the family. We truly share in your loss.

Vic Menard

I greatly admired David and his family as they worked first to improve the Molina area, then the city, schools and county.

I met Mr Noyola for a short time as I was his driver for a local transportation service and would often pick him up to take him to dialysis.We instantly got along so well talking about local tejano and conjunto music legends and he also knows my godfather who is a musician and every time I'd see him he would ask me And my compadre Pato?have you seen him?It was always a pleasant drive to have him as my client.My most sincere condolences to the Noyola family on behalf of SATX Guardian drivers.Our prayers are with the family of Mr Noyola and may the Lord give them strength and peace at this time.
