Oct 1, 1953 – Apr 27, 2018 (Napa, CA)
On April 27, 2018, our dear brother, uncle and friend, Ken Noel, went home to be with our Lord.
Kenneth Paul Noel was born October 1, 1953 to Paul and Marjorie Noel in Napa, Ca. Ken was the youngest of four siblings and a friendly, kindred spirit to all who knew him. Throughout his life Ken enjoyed collecting butterflies, camping with family, and fishing. He was also an avid walker and enjoyed his daily walks. When he wasn’t spending time outdoors, you could catch him following his favorite teams, the 49ers and the Giants.
In the early 90’s he moved from Napa to Sonoma. It was there he met and married the love of his life, Judy Whitten on May 1, 1998. Ken adored Judy and took loving care of her until her death December 1, 2010.
Ken is survived by brother David & Eumelia Noel of San Jose, sister Marilyn & Rod Slade of Napa, brother Gary & Debbie Noel of Prosser, Wa., nephews Ryan Slade and Dan Noel, nieces Angela Slade-Buchanan, Kim Noel-Channel and Tina Noel, along with 9 great nieces and nephews and in-laws, Ed and Jackie Whitten who have remained close, along with his beloved church family.
A celebration of Ken’s life was held on June 8, 2018 at the Sonoma Church of the Nazarene in Napa.
