“Art” Noble, 74, longtime resident of Mina, passed away Oct. 20, 2014 at Mt. Grant Hospital in Hawthorne. Art was born on Feb. 28, 1940 in Aurora, NE to Lloyd Raymond and Mildred Noble. His family moved to Nevada when he was three years old and lived the rest of his life in desert towns of Nevada. He was employed for many years as a truck driver for Wells Cargo and then worked for Nevada Dept. of Transportation as station supervisor until his retirement.
Art served in the US Army in Korea in 1964 and was a lifetime member of the Fortune, Eckley, Perry VFW Post 2668 in Mina. He was also a member of Brucite Lodge #42, Free and Accepted Masons of Gabbs.
Art was a huge hockey fan and especially enjoyed this year’s Lord Stanley’s Cup winner, the L.A. Kings. He loved his annual trip to Disneyland. He loved getting out exploring in the desert with family and friends, taking every side road looking for the destination, taking many hours to find it, then the trip back was usually a 20 minute drive. He also cherished yearly vacations to Branson, MO for music and entertainment with his wife and sometimes other family members. He would take frequent trips to Washington, Idaho and Montana to see family and friends. He also spent many long weekends in Reno to spend time with family there. Arthur loved his family and friends and was the kind of man that would lend a hand to anyone. He loved welding and building, assisting many friends and family with various projects in and around Mina.
