James H. Noel, of 102 Kristen Dr., Wheatland, CA. Jim was a resident of Wheatland for 25 years, since his retirement from his 31 years with PG&E as a warehouseman. His last move with PG&E landed him and his wife Nancy in Wheatland and they planted themselves there and became entwined with the community. Jim served with the Gleaners and the fire department as well as working in the almond orchards as a maintenance mechanic for several years. He did miscellaneous electrical work and liked to set wells up. Nancy and he traveled around with their camper for a number of years until she became too ill to travel. When that happened Jim continued to stay with her even though he could have gone here and there, he never left her side all the way up until the day she died two years ago.

Jim was the true "volunteer". Whenever there was a need, he would be there to help. Even after he couldn't drive anymore he managed to walk to Big Al's, the post office, bank, the Smog Shop and the Village Pharmacy each day to make his rounds. He loved to do that. His son invited him to go live with them but couldn't because of his feeling for this community.

Jim is survived by three sons, David & his wife Darlene of Wallace, CA, Chris of Marysville, CA & Dan and his wife Roxana of Albuquerque, NM, his sister Judy Scott of Sisters, OR, and numerous grandsons and granddaughters.

When we think of steadfast men, think of Jim Noel. See you in heaven, dad.

Services for the memory of Jim Noel will be held at the Faith Baptist Church at 414 Front St. in Wheatland, CA, at 10 AM on the 5th of August 2015. Please come and share your memories of Jim.
