KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Noble “Nobie” B. Noble, Atwood, formerly of Osage City, died Friday, July 23, 2021, at the Kansas City Hospice House, Kansas City, Mo. He was 66.
He was born May 7, 1955, in Emporia, the son of Charles Berton and Rose Kathryn (Getsinger) Noble. He grew up in Osage City and graduated from Osage City High School in 1973.
After high school, Nobie did the smartest thing in his life, and left Osage City to go find the love of his life. That journey took him to Lyndon, of course, where only the sweetest angels are found, and there he found his angel. He married the love of his life, Robyn Pierce, July 31, 1976, in Lyndon. They shared nearly 20 years of marriage before Robyn’s death February 14, 1996. To this union, they shared two daughters, Mackenzie and Jessie.
Nobie worked many years as a heavy equipment operator for various construction companies. He spent most of his life as an over-the-road truck driver, where he drove for many trucking companies. He was a member of the Local 101 Operating Engineers Union in Kansas City, Mo., and the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Osage City.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Robyn; and his three brothers, Pete, Mike and Dan Noble.
Nobie is survived by his two daughters, Mackenzie Curley (Philip), Osage City, and Jessie Noble (Rob Szymula), Belton, Mo.; his two sisters, Cathryn Houghton and Priscilla Hamman (Bob), both of Osage City; and his three grandchildren, Jace Keim and Keaton and Collin Curley, all of Osage City.
Memorial services will be 11 a.m. Saturday, July 31, at Feltner Funeral Chapel, Lyndon. The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 30, at Feltner Funeral Chapel. Nobie’s daughters request that those attending the visitation and service wear jeans and your favorite Harley Davidson or racing shirt in honor of Nobie.
