Duane William Noe
Aug 14,1955 - Feb 6, 2018
Duane William Noe, age 62, died suddenly Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at his home in Merced, CA. He was born August 14, 1955 in Merced to James and Verneita Noe. He was raised in Los Banos, CA. He graduated from Los Banos High School in 1974. Duane began racing at the age of 15, in the sportsman division at Merced Speedway. He went on to race the Late Model division. He was nicknamed the sidewinder, because of the way he put the car sideways in the turns. He won numerous races and track championships. He then moved on to asphalt racing where his winning streak continued. Duane loved racing and even after he stopped climbing behind the wheel, he was still building racing engines and you could still find him at the race track giving advice and telling jokes. Duane worked at Holt Bros in Los Banos for 33 years before retiring.
Duane was preceded in death by his father Jim. He is survived by his mother Verneita, his sister Patty, his son Matt Noe, his daughters Carrie (Jeff) McCoun, and Leigha (David) Kendzora. He leaves behind 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. The family would like to thank Dave and Peggy Farmer and Becky Noe for helping us during this difficult time.
Visitation will be held at Whitehurst Funeral Chapel in Los Banos Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 5-7pm. The funeral Service will be Wednesday, February 14, 2017 at 10:00 am. Burial will follow at Los Banos Cemetery. Services entrusted to Whitehurst Funeral Chapel-Los Banos.
