NOBLE CHARLES GINTHER, JR., born April 27th, 1933 in El Dorado Arkansas, delivered at home by his grandfather, passed on December 28, 2009. He was the eldest child of the late Noble Charles Ginther and the beloved Minnie Lee. Following graduation from St. John's in Houston, Texas, he attended SMU and received a law degree from U of H.
