It was a pleasure to work with him as a coworker in the field of history. As Coventry Historical Society Archivist we worked together to publish an important summary of the manuscript on Coventry Glass by the late Jesse Brainard. Noel also appraised our collection of Coventry Glass, and spent an afternoon evaluating and educating me on another collection of early American Glass that we are fortunate to have. He and I also organized a program on the Coventry Glass Works.

Gerry and Lorna, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. He was such a nice, well accomplished man and he will be missed dearly. I always had a great respect for his knowledge. I know my father will miss his back yard talks with him. May God bless him and all those surrounded by him.
