Your Dad was a great person. He was kind and generous and put other folks in front of him everytime. He always had a kind word and a smile everytime I saw him. He was a wonderful role model and he had a morale compass made out of steel. Anytime I ever had a tough question I’d think what would Lester Nobel do???? He loved him family very much, especially his children. I’m sure he was a wonder Grandfather. I have no doubt that my mom was waiting there at those Gates with your Grandparents with a smile and a firm handshake saying welcome and knowing her she probably asked what took you so long? We have lost a good man and I’m sure there are some other good men in the Noble family. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to make the memorial service but I hope you like the flowers. Knowing his great love of the outdoors we picked an arrangement full of color and hope. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
Philip, Ntrma & Jacob Drayer

I am saddened to learn of Les’s passing. I’ll always remember our enlarged stories and banter on our many trips to Lake Erie for fishing and the great times we shared. I will see you on July 8.

Andy Elliott - Jul 1, 2015

I’m so sorry for your loss, and for the loss for all of us who knew this unique and special person. Les and I had taken many Canada fishing trips together and I will never forget his wit, wisdom and friendship. Tight lines, my friend, until we meet again.

We are so glad to have known Lester — he was a good friend and neighbor, generous and kind-hearted. We will miss him. We are thankful, too, for the precious promises of the Bible that assure us with hope of the resurrection. “And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” (Isaiah 35:10) Our prayers will remain with Ruth Ann and the family…

Just to let you know, how very sorry John and I are to learn of your husband’s passing. Losing someone so unexpectedly is the hardest, know we lift you and your family up for healing and strength during the coming days and weeks.

John Thomas & Cynthia Milich - Jun 30, 2015

We will miss you Lester and thank you for reaching out to us in the short time we have been neighbors.
We loved you right away. Your intellect and humor were obvious from the beginning. You were naively generous which is the purest form of good will. Our property will always be “Noble” land and you will always be with us.

Jean Noble Litzinger - Jun 29, 2015

Have a good trip cousin. I will choose to remember the fun times with you and I will laugh when I do. You will be missed here but there will be more fun in heaven now.

Steve and Becky Jones - Jun 29, 2015

Words cannot express how sorry we are to hear about Lester. He was one-of-a-kind and we will never forget what a wonderful neighbor he was. We still talk about stories of him fighting critters his garden, tipping in his boat on the pond, etc. What a character! He sure will stir things up in heaven!! God bless you during this difficult time…and thank God for sharing Lester with all of us. Becky & Steve and boys
