I am just so sad to hear the news of Chris. He was truly one of the wittiest guys I'd ever known from high school. Caring and dependable, Chris never let me down. What a loss. My love and thoughts are with the Noel family.

Chris was a friend of mine throughout high school. Although I haven't seen him in a few years, we have spoken off and on via messaging and it breaks my heart to hear that he may have never known until now how many lives he touched, how many smiles and laughs he created, and how many people who will miss him tremendously. He was such a remarkable friend. My condolences go out to his family and all who were so blessed to have known such a great guy, even if only for a short time.

Chris was a great guy and a great friend. I don't know what I would have done without him these past few years. He will be missed.

Chris & I knew each other since we were 15 (give or take). We'd grown apart for many reasons, but he'd get in touch now and then over the years. I know that he had his share of troubles but he was always so proud of his nephew and I could tell how much joy being an uncle brought him. Chris loved to make people laugh. He was really fun to be around, and he was always ready with a supportive, kind word when you needed it. I'm so sorry for the pain that I'm sure his death has brought to his family and I hope that the memories of the laughter shared throughout his lifetime will carry them through.

It has been a long time since I last saw Chris (kind of happens when you move away from where you grew up I guess) but he always holds a place in my memory for the many hours of practice we spent together when we were both injured. He was such a fun loving guy and loyal to his friends. Both of is were frustrated not to be able to play but having a friend like Chris made the time much more enjoyable. I miss his sense of humor and smile at the memories I have of him.

Chris was a great friend during the awkward years. I have many early high school memories of us hanging out after school just about every day. Chris was a gentleman and a protector and a dedicated friend. He always treated me with respect and always looked out for me. Although he moved back to TX we kept in some contact. After he joined the service he came back through Wheaton and I drove him out to visit extended family. I had dinner with them and said goodbye. It's the last time I saw him. I didn't know him as one who struggled with anything. He was always smiling and always making life a funny thing. He got along with everyone and was never judgmental ( except maybe a basketball ref!) I was sitting in church on Sunday thinking about all the people out there who are struggling in life and honestly I was ashamed at how " picture perfect "mine can look like at times. It's not at all, but I want to make a pledge to really strive to know people and not be afraid to be vulnerable myself. I didn't take the time to see that Chris was struggling and I'm so mad at myself for that. It's comforting to know that he is set free now.

I met Chris while working at Rockfish. We quickly become close friends; we preferred to work together and he would make the day fly by. He always had a smile on his face and always made me laugh. I’ve stolen quite a bit of his material through the years to make others laugh. One of my favorite stories was a first date he had at the Practice Tee, which ended with his date being rushed to the ER. He lived for others; he always had Blake in the car seat, taking him around town.
His departure is a tremendous loss; to his family and the community.
Please accept my heart felt condolences.

My heart breaks for the Noel family. I wake up everyday in disbelief he is gone. I will miss his laughter and smile. I cherish my memories of him with Blake and how that little boy was his world. I am picturing him on the sunny beach in Galveston on our vacation soaking up the rays. Or the Cowboys game against the Eagles where we poked fun at the crazy fans at the stadium. He loved his Dallas Cowboys win or lose! He will be forever missed. Love you Chris.

My boys always referred to Chris as "that guy who smiled all the time". They were right. He did, and that smile changed my world. Chris had such a big heart with a huge capacity to love. I count myself as blessed to have been on the receiving end of it for as long as I did. Chris will always have a place in my heart, and you guys will stay in my prayers.

Chris was like a big brother to me. For years he was always hanging around...always laughing about something! That's what I remember the most. Smiling and laughing...all the time! My heart goes out to your family.

The summer of 97' I went to RockFest with one of my friends. We ended up meeting up with another group of friends (including Chris) Later in the night, I had gotten separated from my friend/Ride at the concert and I wanted to find her to make sure she was ok. Chris gave up his ride home to go with me to find my friend. We ended up getting stranded there. Chris totally took care of us. He found us a ride home with a limo. Ha!The limo driver just happened to be from Pearce and so Chris pretended to be the Limo drivers nephew and I pretended to be Chris's girlfriend. We sat up front with the Limo driver while he took his clients home.I was so upset the entire time because my parents had no idea where I was and I knew they would not be very happy. Chris totally took charge. Got the limo driver to pull over at a gas station so I could call my parents from a pay phone.He was such a gentleman. He was a dear friend and I am heart broken. Please know that you all are in my prayers.

Chris was not only my brother, he was my best friend. I will never be the same without him. He lives on, however, through my son, Blake Noel. He is just like his "Uncle Buddy" and we will forever miss him.
