Ned Lee Noble(1935 - 2013)

Ned Lee Noble, 77, of Bloomfield, passed away on Thursday, Aug 15, 2013, in Albuquerque. He was born Oct. 11, 1935, in Farmington, to Curt Henry and Hattie Louise Noble.

Ned served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. The majority of his career was in the oilfield and trucking industry. He was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather, who enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was always the favorite "playmate."

We will miss his teasing, playful sense of humor and wit.

Ned was preceded in death by his wife, Beverly Hope Noble; parents; brothers, Curt Noble Jr., Clay Noble, Clint Noble and Dean Noble; and his sisters, Florence Noble, Ruby Ford and Midge Mitchell.

He is survived by his son, John Noble; daughters, Margie (Mark) Williams, Robin (Phil) Laben and Kristy Noble; and his brother, Cleve Noble. He is also survived by his five grandchildren, Eric Williams, Stefanie Gonzales, Heidi Signaoff, Nicole Noble and Amanda Laben; and his five great-grandchildren, Kailee Williams, Zia Williams, Isabel Gonzales, Lily Signaoff and Cassie Signaoff.

A private family graveside service will be 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, in Noble Acres Cemetery.

Ned's care is entrusted to Cope Memorial Chapel, 404 W. Arrington St. in Farmington, 505-327-5142. Those who wish to express their condolences may do so at
