Bob was born on February 13, 1927 in Shannon, Texas to parents Homer and Lillian Noe. He enlisted in the U.S. Army during the latter stages of World War II, and following basic training, was assigned to duty in the Panama Canal Zone. After the war, he went to work in the oilfields of Texas, and spent more than 40 years working for Texaco in the Electra and Gainesville areas. During this time, he met the love of his life, Dorothy Mae Richardson, who he married on April 10, 1948. Together they raised and nurtured three children in a loving and supportive household. Bob was a member and regular attendee of the Church of Christ. He enjoyed reading his Bible, fishing, hunting, target shooting, and telling tales of growing up during the Great Depression, serving in the U.S. Army, and his years of working in the oilfield. He was an anchor for the extended Noe family whose friendship and counsel were greatly valued. We feel extremely blessed to have had him with us for 92 years in good physical and mental health. He will be long remembered and deeply missed.
Bob is survived by his daughter Jeannie Noe Lalk and husband Randy of Midland; two sons, Wes Noe and wife Renae of Midland, and Stephen Noe of Tomball; four grandsons, Kevin Lalk of Midland, Ryan Lalk and wife Rommela of Midland, Brandon Noe and wife Amanda of Odessa, and Andrew Noe and wife Danielle of Great Gransden, UK; and seven great grandchildren. His is also survived by three sisters; Beth Oldstrom of Bloomington, Indiana, Etna Noe of Canyon Lake, Texas, and Greta Limon of Electra, Texas.
Bob was preceded in death by his beloved wife Dorothy, his parents, and one brother and five sisters.
