Glenn Noblitt, 79, of Seymour, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, June 26, 2015 at 5:30 a.m. after a long illness.
He was a fireman for 25 years and fire chief for 13 years for the Seymour Fire Department. He retired Aug. 25, 1984, to start Noblitt Excavating.
He was born Nov. 27, 1935, at the Peter’s Switch homestead, the son of the late Archibold and Wilma Noblitt.
He will be greatly missed by his wife, Nancy Waldkoeter; four children, Julia Mohr (John), Eva Auleman (David), Beth Linnemeier (Joe) and Nathan Noblitt (Amy); nine grandchildren, Amy Cockerham, Lauren Earl, Isaac Auleman, Madison and Chloe Auleman, Cassidy Linnemeier, Christopher Frazier and Jeremiah and Daniel Noblitt; seven great-grandchildren; two brothers, Max and Neal Noblitt; and a sister, Sharon Baurle. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
Glenn was a wonderful husband, a great father and was very devoted to his family. He was known for his passion of building Kentucky long rifles, being an outdoorsman and his community service. He enjoyed going squirrel and deer hunting with his muzzleloader he had crafted. He and his wife reopened Rocksey Skating Rink in 2007 and loved the ministry with children there.
