He was so proud to create and manage the Millwork Department at rk MILES. He was an Auxiliary Vermont State Trooper and also worked as a Manchester Police Officer. Barbara joked they needed two large closets for his various uniforms. Noel remained active until his health issues forced him to alter his course. He courageously battled his illness as it progressed and was so grateful for all the love and support he received along the way. Noel had a very strong faith and relied on God throughout. Noel loved to sing and dance and party. He loved hunting, camping, reading and building things. He loved life! Mostly, Noel loved his family and friends and spending time with them.
