Bill was born September 6, 1931 in Tuskegee, Alabama and moved to Johnson City in 1966. He was one of five children of the late Mark Wright and Annie Weaver Noble. Mr. Noble was a U. S. Army Veteran. He graduated from the University of Alabama with a BA degree. Bill wed Shirley Ann Taylor, whom he called his beautiful bride on July 8, 1954. They had 57 wonderful years together. They loved taking trips together, playing bridge and any event which involved bringing all of their children and grandchildren together. He worked as an accountant until he retired at age 55. After his retirement he began working with his wife, Shirley as co-owners of the H & R Block franchises in Greeneville and Erwin, TN. He loved the Lord and loved to praise Him through music.
He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and a friend to everyone he met. He loved fishing with his son and laughing with his daughters. Never did he give up an opportunity to teach or hug a child that loved him. He loved taking long, quiet walks in the woods with his family and beloved dog. No challenge was too big for Bill Noble. He was what a husband and a man strives to be. “He was the wisest man I will ever know. He was my best friend. I will miss you immensely Granddad Love, Billy”
