Jack L. Noel

MEADVILLE — Jack L. Noel, 79, of Meadville, died Sunday, June 29, 2014, at Wesbury United Methodist Retirement Community.

He was born July 9, 1934, in Meadville, a son of Robert and Laura Zeitler Noel. He married Joyce Keefe Sopher on June 24, 1977, and she survives.

Jack was first employed in the physical therapy department of Meadville City Hospital and then Abex Corporation for more than 20 years as a foundry worker and subsequently retired from Channellock following more than 10 years of service. After his retirement, Jack worked in security at Wesbury, a job he truly loved and where he was a devoted employee for more than 10 years and where he always made everyone feel at ease and had a wonderful sense of humor. A hard working man all of his life, Jack enjoyed hunting for a short time, bluegrass music and working in his yard. He was a passionate New York Yankees fan which was only second to his loving wife, children and grandchildren whom he took great pride in and cherished his time spent with them.

He was a member of St. Agatha Roman Catholic Church.

Survivors, in addition to his loving wife, Joyce, of 37 years, include five children, Laurie Hackworth and her husband, Jack, of Linesville, Mickey Noel and his wife, Bernadette, of Massillon, Ohio, Cody Noel of Meadville, Jamie Sopher and his wife, DeAnna, of Meadville, and Jackie Cox and her companion, John Homa, of Spartansburg; seven grandchildren, Allie Sopher, Nolan Cox, Kayla Noel, Erin Sopher, Adrienne Sopher, Andrew Hackworth and Jacob Hackworth; a brother, Robert (Red) Noel and his wife, Betty, of Meadville; a sister, Betty Ann Noel of Meadville; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Bill Noel; and a daughter-in-law, Tammy Noel.

Calling hours are today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Barco Chapel of Wesbury United Methodist Retirement Community, 31 N. Park Ave., Meadville, where a memorial service follows at 1:30 p.m., with Father Matthew Kujawinski of St. Agatha Church and the Rev. Philip Torre, Wesbury assistant chaplain, officiating.

Interment will be in St. Agatha Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to Wesbury United Methodist Community, 31 N. Park Ave., Meadville, Pa. 16335.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Robert W. Waid Funeral Home, 581 Chestnut St., Meadville, where memories and condolences may be shared at waidfuneralhome.net.
