We are in Florida vacationing. My condolences to Pat, Jennifer and the entire family. I have many great memories of watching Nolan pulling tractors and later trucks. He was a mainstay of the Central Michigan Pullers. An excellent farmer and a great friend of my parents Willard and Bessie Myers. No doubt he and dad are together catching up. Rest in peace!

I remember Noland very well he was always nice all the fans. I really miss those Glory days of tractor pulling. Remember the one of the first few times I saw the tractor odd couple then they repainted it and call it the odd squad. Nobody else can make 455 Oldsmobile engines run like he did. Godspeed.

Dear Pat and entire family, We have know the Hall Family all our lives. Sharon and her brother, Larry, attended the Pink School with them. In fact, back then, all the families in this area made up THE PINK COMMUNITY CLUB.
And of course all of us went to and graduated from Mason High School, in fact, he and Dennis graduated from high school the same year. Our love and prayers are with Pat, their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and Joyce & Joan and their families. They all hold a very special place in our hearts. R.I.P. dear Friend, you will definitely be missed.

Nolan was a man of smiles, a hearty laugh and always looking to lend a hand to fix anything. A great competitor in Michigan and with the National Tractor Pullers Association. When Nolan and Pat were together there was happiness all around. My condolences to "mother Hall" who helped, guideand shaped me into the person I am today during our time together during the CSPC. May perpetual light shine upon him. God bless.
