Shawn Noble
Shawn Odell Noble, 55, of Lincoln City, Ore., died of cancer on Nov. 18, 2012 at his home.

He was born Dec. 10, 1956 to Donald Albert and Theola Joy (Erickson) Noble in Lancaster, Calif. For most of his young life, he lived in and attended school in Yucca Valley, Calif. In 1972, Shawn had moved to Tangent, Ore. and attended and graduated from West Albany High School in 1975. After high school, he played slow-pitch softball in Albany with his dad as the coach. In 1981, he met his wife, Marlene, and they moved to Salem. They had two sons, Shawn II and Doug. In 1987, he moved his family to Molalla and worked for Molalla Discount Tire and Continental Rubber Company.

In 2004, he moved his family to Lincoln City and changed occupations from 25 years in the tire business to a subcontractor for Carpet One in Newport with his best friend, Jeff Hill.

While living in Salem and Molalla, he became one of the state’s best dart players. He threw professionally for eight years, but he loved playing in the Molalla Country Dart League with friends and had lots of fun for 14 years. He was a member of the Molalla Moose Lodge for a short time. He also loved sports, but throughout his life his passion was fishing, from the high lakes in Oregon to the coastal rivers. He also loved the Oregon State Beavers.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Theola Erickson; and two stepdaughters, Renee Holowati and Jill Marie Abbott.

He is survived by his wife, Marlene Fay Noble of Lincoln City; children, Shawn Noble II, Douglas Noble, and stepson, Robert (Sondra) Holowati of Sandy, Ore.; sisters, Dawn Luehring, Leslie Godden and Rose Mason of Yucca Valley, Calif., and Lily Mason of Arizona; brothers, Donald Noble of Nevada and Lenard Mason of Kansas; sister-in-law, Darlene (Dennis) Starboard of Lincoln City; grandchildren, Bryce, Shaylee and Tyler of Sandy; 35 nieces and nephews; 35 grandnieces and nephews, including his number one fan, his nephew Tiger, of Molalla, and niece, Cherry, of Independence who were a great help through his sickness.

A memorial service will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at the Spot Tavern in Molalla. Memorial donations may be made in Shawn’s name at Chase Bank #2436519374.
