Charles Edward Nobles
Charles Edward Nobles passed away May 5, 2012, with his loved ones by his side, after a short battle with cancer.
He was born Oct. 28, 1942, to Samuel and Winnie Nobles in Tulsa, Okla. He was lucky to come into this world as the younger brother to Darla. He spent his youth in Tulsa, Okla., and moved to Delano, Calif., at the age of 15, where he graduated from Delano High School.
He joined the Air Force after high school and served as a mechanic. He met great lifelong friends whom he considered his brothers, Rick McCallum, Bill Sadler, Jim Drummond, and Gene Olague.
He met the love of his life, Jane Nobles, in California. They were married in Las Vegas, Nev., on Sept. 12, 1964. They had 46 years of love and laughter. They were lifelong companions and friends and created numerous memories.
They moved to Utah where they settled and raised their son, Wallace Edward Nobles, born June 10, 1973. Chuck was a wonderful and loving husband. He was always a kind and gentle father and a great example to his son. He had strong family values and his family always came first. He was an extremely hardworking man and took care of those he loved. He was always there to help anyone out and would have given you the shirt off his back.
He spent over 20 years as a foreman with Thiokol. He also spent many years helping his father-in-law on the family ranch in Snowville, raising cattle and horses. He had numerous hobbies and interests, including a love of motorcycles, and American Muscle cars, which he passed on to his son. He had a very creative side which was manifested in the form of woodworking, leather work and stained glass. He spent hours working on leather projects which were always wanted by his friends. His number one passion, though, was always his wife and son, as well as his daughter-in-law whom he always thought highly of, and his grandkids.
