A Loving Tribute

Robert W. Noble

September 29, 1943 – November 30, 2023
Submitted by Carolyn White


En route to a vacation, Bob Noble suffered a heart attack that led to his death ten days later. He died at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in New York City with his wife Carolyn at his side.

He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and as the child of what he called a “government gypsy,” he grew up in several states, wherever his father’s job took them. After graduating from Louisiana Tech University in 1965, he began his career as a government gypsy. He retired in 1999 after working for Social Security, Medicare and the Inspector General’s office of the Department of Health and Human Services.

It was with his move to Grand Junction in 2010 that he truly found his home. For many years, he was president of the Grand Junction Newcomers Club. He looked forward to the weekly meetings of the Friday Bagel Group. As an auxiliary member of the Art Center Guild, he relished selling brownies at Music in the Grapevines concerts. He loved baseball caps, music, travel, and quiet times reading and was always ready for a schmooze.

He is survived by his wife, Carolyn White; sons Warren (Angela), Colin (Shay), Jacob, and Malcolm; stepdaughter Rebecca Fischer; and a host of friends.

Donations may be made to The Art Center of Western Colorado in Bob’s name. Please also consider registering as a donor at DonateLifeColorado.org. He would have been delighted to learn that his 80-year-old liver would give someone else another chance at life.
