Noble Fred Joel, Jr., 73, of Austin, Minnesota, passed from this life surrounded by his family at his Harrison, Tennessee home on January 25, 2013.

Fred was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and soldier who retired as a mustang officer from the United States Navy, starting his career as an enlisted man that saw the world from the ashes of Mount Vesuvius to the jungles of Vietnam, and whose commissioned career spanned from the bridge of guided missile destroyers to the expanses of Antarctica. In retirement he taught at Chattanooga State and DuPont Industries, but his true passion was his family and anyone he ever met in need.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Noble Fred Sr. and Amreta Joel, and his sister Renae Raimann, all of Austin, Minnesota.

Fred is survived by his loving wife, Anne H. Joel, of Harrison; sons Romeo and Craig; daughters Sheila, Juli and Tara, all of Harrison, Tennessee; brothers and sisters-in-law Ike and Pat Joel of Mankato, Minnesota, Edward Joel of Harrison, Tennessee, and David & Debra Joel of Austin, Minnesota; and his sisters and brothers-in-law Jane and Larry Clark, Austin, Minnesota, Sharon and Bob Bednar, of Austin, Minnesota, and Suzanne and Bruce Vaith, of Manchester, Minnesota; and six grandsons, Michael, David and Joel Ruiz, Austin Noble and Carter Joel, and William Conroe Joel; and a host of precious nieces, nephews, and other relatives. He is the man the family revolved around, and will be forever in our hearts.

A private family service will be held at a later date, but memorial contributions may be made in his name to Hospice of Chattanooga, 2411 Oakwood Dr., Chattanooga, TN 37416.
