Noertker, Jr.

Asheville - Joseph Anthony Noertker, Jr., 87, of Deerfield, died Sunday, May 4, 2014.

He was born on March 18, 1927 in Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of the late, Joseph A. and Lillian Kirby Noertker; parents who taught him to find joy in being a participant, rather than a spectator in Life.

On September 9, 1950 he married, Nancy J. Steele. Her forgiveness, sacrifice, and love enabled him to chase his quixotic dreams. In addition to his wife he is also survived by his sons, Stephen, Alan and Douglas; and five grandchildren.

He sought to teach others to find joy amid the challenges of living. Death surely must celebrate life.

Under the wide and starry sky,

Dig the grave and let me lie.

Glad did I live and gladly die,

And laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:

Here he lies where he long'd to be;

Home is the sailor, home from the sea,

And the hunter home from the hill.

-Robert Lewis Stephenson

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 AM on Monday, May 12, 2014 at St. Giles Chapel on the Campus of Deerfield Retirement Community.

Morris Funeral Home, 304 Merrimon Avenue, is assisting the family. Condolences may be sent through the website, www.morrisfamilyfuneralhome.com.
