Obituary of Thomas Howard Noble

Thomas “Tommy” Howard Noble, 71 years old, son, brother, uncle, poet, photographer and former tight end passed away very fittingly on All Souls Day, Friday, November 2, 2018.

Tommy grew up in Jackson and attended Provine High School, where he ran Track and played football. His abilities on the football field were noticed by Coach Johnny Vaught of Ole Miss. He received a scholarship and played there briefly until an injury took him off of the field too soon. He then attended both Ole Miss and MS State.

Tommy had a passion for photography, poetry and Johnny Mathis albums. He had a voice that accompanied his mother’s piano playing perfectly and made the rest of the family sound good! Tommy was well loved by many people and will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Earline Noble; and his brother, Phil Noble (Robbie).

Those left to remember him are his sisters, Linda Noble Gilliland, Mary Lane Noble Stiglets (Jimmy), and Vicki Noble Ott (Shaw); as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.

The family would like to especially thank Mike and Becky Hampton for their love and care of Tommy in recent years.

A service will be held graveside at Lakewood Memorial Cemetery on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 2:00 PM.

RIEMANN FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 11280 Three Rivers Road, Gulfport, is serving the family.
