Damon Lee Noblet of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma passed away on September 22, 2021 at the age of 57. He was born in Maryville, Missouri to Merriell D. and Joyce E. Noblet (formerly Lewis) on November 18, 1963. Damon grew up in Missouri, and attended Central High School in St. Joseph, graduating with the Class of ’82. After graduation, Damon attended Missouri Western State College, where he played baseball for a brief period. Damon was a skilled woodworker, a Carpenter by trade, and his career allowed him to travel all over the country.
Damon was an eclectic person. He had a great love for music, art, sports, and family. He was funny, lighthearted, playful, and enjoyable to be around, often humming and singing. He was a natural artist who was passionate about his projects. Damon wanted everyone to enjoy his work as much as he did. He gained his spirit, knowledge, and humor from the things around him and what was happening in the moment. He was creative, kind, and passionate about his work, his art, and his music. He was talented in many areas, always wanting to try doing new things that interested him, like learning to play guitar and gardening. Damon loved music – it was in his soul – and not a day went by that he didn’t listen to music, as well as politics and sports. He loved listening to Styx, and Damon was Dennis DeYoung’s biggest fan, able to sing every note of every one of his songs. He believed music gave soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.
He enjoyed watching all sports, and his favorite teams were the Kansas City Chiefs, the Missouri Tigers, the OU Sooners, and the OKC Thunder. He also liked to play golf, and he had a lot of fun going out to the courses with his brother and brother-in-law. Damon was a patriot of this great nation, and he loved his country. He liked watching military movies like Saving Private Ryan, Darkest Hour, and Band of Brothers, but he would never pass up the opportunity to watch a John Wayne movie. He also loved to watch the History and the Discovery channels, and he liked watching American Pickers, Gold Rush, and The Walking Dead.
Damon enjoyed cooking and loved to experiment with flavors and spices. He was known for his sriracha sauce and his smoked pulled pork. Every time he would make a new batch of his sauce, he was so eager to have his family and neighbors try it. He was always willing to help Tina with her tailgate parties, and Damon was always in charge of smoking the pork that Tina took with her. He had a secret injection recipe that he was unwilling to share with anyone.
Damon loved talking with his family. He made it a habit to talk to Linda every day, and always reached out to his brothers during Kansas City Chiefs football games. He always enjoyed catching up with his son, Hunter and shooting guns with his brother Rob. Damon will be remembered and deeply missed by his family and friends.
A memorial graveside service will be held at 1:00 PM on October 16, 2021 at the Prairie Home Cemetery in Graham, Missouri.
