According to Webster, "noble" means "outstanding qualities."   Mr. Noble Barker's picture should forever be etched in all dictionaries defining "noble."  It will be in my mind.   

Only for a relatively short time did I know Noble.  We bacame good friends,we shared notes on farming, he helped save my daughters calf, I advised him on fish stocking and feeding.  His love for his family, especially grandchildren, was contageous.  He was a man I admired and will forever more.  His family will find comfort knowing we shall all meet again someday in heaven above.  Until then good bye my Noble friend.

Others have spoken the words that I feel.
My condolences.
Just seeing the name Brother Noble always brought a smile to my face because I could see the stoopid cows in my mind.

 :( :'( :( :'( :'( :'(  My condolences to Brother Noble's father.  We are very sorry for your loss.  His passing is a loss to everyone.  We are saddened.  I first met him in person at a Pig roast several years ago and visited their farm three times over the past couple years picking up his Dad's Corley #5 sawmill.  We enjoyed every minute of those visits which were always shorter than I would have liked :(  One visit he had a toy steel wheeled tractor with a gas engine he'd put together for his grandkids out for Zach to ride  8) 8) 8)

Oh no. This news just breaks my heart.

 I love reading Bro Nobles posts, he was so intelligent and so funny. While I never had the pleasure to meet Noble, I did have the pleasure of buying lumber from him. He was truly a class act all the way.

One thread I remember him the most from was about the women in the Bible. I laughed and laughed at the comments. I will search to find that thread so you all can enjoy his wonderful humor.

When I logged onto the Forum this morning and saw Bro. Noble's picture at the top of the page, I knew exactly what it meant :-\. He will be missed, but our loss is his gain. My prayers are with the family.

My heart sank when I saw Brother Noble's picture.  I have met few true gentlemen in my life, Noble was definately one and a good example for us all.

It is good he passed in his sleep and suffered not. 

I will miss his wit and wisdom greatly.
