David (Dave) Ramsay Noble, resident of Forest Grove Care Centre, passed away on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at the age of 86 years.
Dave was born to John R. and Isabelle (nee Reid) Noble on September 25, 1922 on a farm near Compeer, AB. He was a family of thirteen (four sisters and eight brothers). Dave and his twin brother Ed received their education at Westland School which was about three miles from the homestead. He and Ed moved to Calgary where they were employed at Nu-West homes in the building trade. Dave and Ed lived a number of years together before they moved to Forest Grove Care Centre. In earlier years, Dave enjoyed returning to the Compeer area to visit family and participate in the annual fall goose hunts. This allowed him to rekindle his agrarian roots. Dave and his brother Ed always had soft spots in their hearts for the stray animals, especially cats, that would surface at their residence when hungry. Never was a hungry animal turned away, which was a characteristic that they had learned in their rural childhood upbringing. Dave is survived by his sister June Davidson and four brothers, Bert, Alan, Ronald and Gordon.
