Dear Jane and family,
I have just learned of your loss today and my thoughts are with all of you at this time...
Deepest and most heartfelt sympathy for all.
Noell and I officed together a long time ago. A better man in business could not be found. A man of his word, absolute integrity, and always great to partner with and share times. He will be greatly missed. Sandy Pofahl
Kelly, I am praying for you and your family!
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time
A great warrior and gentleman. God Speed.
from a fellow Rat (Nail66).
Mayo and I both adored Noell. I flew with him at Braniff and Mayo went to SMU with him.. what a fun loving man and a heart of gold that persued his passion.. Our hearts go out to his family..
Great Pilot, great friend.
Nothing will endure more than Noell's personal qualities. He always made me smile.
Jane, Marlene and I give you and your family our heartfelt sympathy. Noel and I go back starting at Nellis AFB when he was recovering from an operation, then to Okinawa. I considered him a friend and great pilot. Only a few have been able to live a life as full as Noell. Our Prayers go out to you and your family.
I will miss my dear friend who I always enjoyed being with.
I only had the privilege of being with Noell on a couple of Bent Tree golfing excursions and found he was quite a gentleman, very witty and enjoyed our brief association. Obviously he had a great influence on many and my prayers are with his family and friends
Sending much love to all the Rathers
Our Prayers go out to all our fellow family members and friends! Noel was a wonderfully talented Pilot, Father, Grandfather and Friend to all of us who were Blessed to have known and flown with him! There is a large hole in the sky where he once flew and in the hearts of those of us left behind! He is now soaring with Wings of Angels with his many friends now in Heaven! Luke 18:27
He was a great, caring, compassionate boss that will be truly missed. He was the first person I saw when walking into the office and will miss him saying, "get with me kiddo, lets discuss". RIP my friend.
Our hearts are broken. Honey and Mo Baker
