Like others, I was stunned with I opened up the FF this morning and saw his photo at the top.  The first thought through my head was "oh no..."

We have many great people on this forum, and Brother Noble was one of the greatest of the greats.  We are all much poorer for his loss, yet at the same time much richer for the wonderful thoughts that he shared with us over the years.

My condolences to the famil.

I was very sad to see Bro Noble's picture at the top of the page when I signed on. Though I never met him, we shared some messages about his days at Iowa State and about the life of a dairy farmer.

He will be missed.

My wife and I were privileged to meet Bro. Noble and Nancy, and one of the sons, at an early pig roast.  I recognized early on that he was a special person, and his posts were an "always read" for me from that point on.  I always got a kick out of his "stoopid cows" remarks.  I read his obituary, and it's obvious that his legacy is well established, and his place in life highly regarded.  His family might not see the extent of the comments here on the Forestry Forum, but I have hopes that Son, David will see to that. They will see the extent of our regards for Bro. Noble.  Condolences to the entire family.

When I told my wife about Brother Noble's passing,  she recalled the time that the four of us,  Noble, Becky, Jeremiah (my son) and I were riding around Ozark County in my pickup truck with me driving.  Noble would tell me now you gotta keep your speed up going up this hill till you get to the top of the hill. (no prob with V8 pickup) and when you neared the crest of the hill the road suddenly veered to the left and of course the natural reaction is to let off the gas and hit the brakes.  Noble laughed and said "Ah you chickened out like everyone else does"     then he said,  when we were kids, we would take the hill full speed all the time for thrills.    I think as Noble got older,  he got wiser,  cause his pickup truck back in 2003 only had a 6 cylinder,  probably so he wouldn't be tempted to climb the hills of the Ozark Co. roads at speeds capable only in a V8.

At the end of our visit to Noble's in 2003.  Noble was driving in his pickup and we in ours.  We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant about an hour north of his farm.  I can't recall the name of the town.  Anyway, after lunch, he wanted to take us
by an antique equipment museum that he and Noble Sr. were actively involved in getting established.   Noble pulled up to the museum grounds in his pickup truck and I was right behind him in mine.  I pulled into the grass to park (no parking lot)
and got out of the truck.   About that time,  up walked a 6 foot tall Easter Bunny and I started getting chewed out for parking on the grass.   It seems that this Easter Bunny and a few other people had just finished hiding a bunch of Easter Eggs for
a hunt that was about to take place in an hour or so.    Noble never did let me live that one down as he frequently reminded me that I was the only person he ever knew that was nearly assaulted by an Easter Bunny.   
Whoever was in the costume was pretty hot under the collar probably both literally due to the costume and figuratively too.

That is a great Noble Story. :) 

Riding around in a pickup with Noble either as the driver or a passenger was a treat. One time Tammy and I along with Noble stopped at a small store to get a coke. Tammy and I went in and Noble remained in our truck. Some how the truck alarm was set off just after we entered the store and we couldn't hear it from within the store. When we finished up and went back outside we found the horn was blaring and the lights were flashing and there sat Noble reading a book that had been laying on the dash and acting as if he was oblivious to the whole thing.  The book was upside down. :D

Nobleson,
I am very sorry for your loss.  Your father had and will continue to have a great deal of influence on this membership.  Though I had not met him, he was a model of decorum that all of us appreciated and that I respected greatly.

David, thank you for letting us know.  I've been out of town for a while and am just catching up.  Your dad is going to be sorely missed around here.  It was my honor to chat with him here from time to time and to pray for he and his family.  I'm really going to miss him and am upset that we never got to personally meet and shake hands.

Prayers for comfort to you and yours from Alaska.

More photos has been posted to my Facebook Album on Brother Noble.  I have added comments about many of the individual photos including a photo of the house where Brother Noble was born and the swimming hole where he swam as a kid.
