It was with Sharpe, Noble could be seen driving the cars, answering the phones or saying something to bring joy to a family who was in need of cheering. His infectious laugh, could brighten any dark situation.
Noble loved several things in life. First, he loved God and his family dearly. He loved golfing, driving in his big red truck, Lowe’s, Holly Hill Mall, Waffle House on 54, Surfside and its members, Augusta Lodge and his beloved Sharpe Funeral Home, Inc.
