John Leslie Noe was born August 20, 1939 at General Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, son of Stanley H. and Maxine (Rogers) Noe. He graduated from Butler High School in 1957. John joined his father, Dr. Stanley H. Noe in his optometry practice in Butler in 1963 after graduating from the Southern College of Optometry. He continued in practice for 50 years, retiring in 2013.

Throughout his life John enjoyed being in the country. In his earlier years, he enjoyed fishing and hunting but particularly loved farming. He primarily raised cattle but had sheep and chickens among other animals as well. Even in his final days he spent time outside listening to the quail. This summer he was able to enjoy the first peach of the season from a tree on his place. He belonged to the Butler Masonic Lodge and the Elks.

One day, John told Suzanne he was going to Sunday services at Double Branch Christian Church, and that she could come along if she wished, but didn’t have to. From that day on, he would be a faithful member of the Church, attending every Sunday he was able.

Dr. John was preceded in death by his parents, and a son, Allen Daron Noe. He is survived by his wife, Suzanne; children John Damon Noe (April), Scot A Noe, Laura M. Woods (Mike), Danielle Torres (Ray), and Sara C. Weatherman; grandchildren Jchelsea, Daniel, Derek, Joshua, Breanna and Aleah Noe, Dustin, Dylan, Logan, and Rowdy Noe, and Micaela and Levi Woods; great-grandchildren Remington and Chandlyr Noe, and Zander White; as well as special adopted family Dr. Dave and Susie Miller, and their children Bryce, Blaire and Brooke.
