As a child Noah loved to spend his time, like most young boys, playing with his marbles or rolling tires. Noah had a love for church; it was instilled in him even as a small child when he and his family would walk to church on Sundays. He loved listening to singing, especially the old time quartet style music. His most prized possession was his Bible and it never left his side. Noah will always be remembered for his sweet and gentle demeanor, he never got upset, but just spent his time loving people.
He leaves behind to mourn his passing his three sisters: Dora Arbutus Watson of Corbin, Joyce Smith of Corbin and Georgia Rains of Corbin; his nieces and nephews: Ricky Curnutt and wife Virginia of Williamsburg and Vicky Lane and husband Johnny of Barbourville.
