Noah Martin Hobbs, age 80, of Sheldon, Missouri, passed
away Wednesday, June 7, 2017, at Freeman
Noah was born November 21, 1936, in
Bartonville, Illinois, to Harley and Vivian (Wilkinson) Hobbs. After serving in the U.S. Navy, he began a
career as a High Voltage Electrician. He completed many projects, living in
many places before his last assignment at China Lake Naval Weapons Base in
Ridgecrest, California. After retiring
in 1997, Noah settled in Missouri where he had more time to spend with his
family. Playing pool, fishing with his nephews, reading William Johnstone
novels, watching western movies, and outings with his sister filled his
time. Winning a national billiards
trophy was a highlight for him, but his best memories were made with his
grandkids, and he cherished any activity that could be shared (along with his
favorite M & Ms and Pay Days) with them.
On October 4, 1973, at Oberlin, Kansas,
Noah married Barbara Skiles, and she preceded him in death April 26, 1987. He was also preceded by his parents and a
brother, Jack Hobbs.
