Noel grew up in San Antonio, TX and graduated from Jefferson High School. He attended St. Mary’s College in San Antonio, as well as Texas Lutheran College in Seguin. Noel earned his DDS from the University of Texas Dental School in 1964. After graduating from dental school, Noel established his practice in The Houston Heights where he practiced for 40 years. Throughout his career, Noel practiced alongside his Uncle, Dr. Donald Garbade, good friend Dr. Charles Schmidt and later Dr. Carol Price. Noel was a member of The American Dental Association and The Academy of General Dentistry. He also volunteered at the San Jose Clinic. A notable highlight of his life was serving as a Seasonal Park Ranger in Yellowstone National Park in 1961. This experience fostered his love of the outdoors and the American West. In 1968, Noel’s parents purchased property in Chaffee County, Colorado. Over the years, he looked forward to his numerous “cabin” vacations with family and friends, as well as his annual “hunting” trips in October. After selling his practice, Noel and Susan enjoyed traveling the world with trips to South America, the Far East, and Europe. Noel was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather. One of the greatest joys in his life was spending time with his family and friends. He absolutely adored his grandchildren and was very active in their lives. He often spent his free time creating pieces of art, as well as collecting and restoring antiques. He loved model trains, hunting, riding motorcycles, watching Westerns and listening to Country Music. He was active with Holy Cross Lutheran Church, where he served the church in numerous roles.
