Noah Lee Mullendore was born Sept. 19, 1944, in Wellston to Walter E. and Lela M. (Judd) Mullendore.

Later his family moved to a small dairy farm in McLoud where he would learn about life and hard work. Noah graduated from McLoud High School with the class of 1962.

In 1963, the family bought a 600-acre farm near Seminole where they continued their dairy operation.

In the fall of 1964, he joined the Army Reserve. Noah proudly served his country in the 95th Infantry Division until 1971 when he received an honorable discharge with the rank of SSGT. E6.

During this time, Noah met the love of his life, Mary Sue Brown, on a blind date in 1966. They married later that year on Nov. 25. To this union, one daughter and two sons were born, Lee, Kerrie and Brian.

In 1978, the dairy was sold and Noah moved his family to Bethel Acres. He then became a truck driver for Trans Con Truck Lines. He also sold insurance and worked as an electrician before going to work for Con-Way Truck Lines where he received a "One Million Mile Safe Driving" award.

Noah was a deacon at Blackburn Chapel Baptist Church. He also had many hobbies and talents but most of all he was blessed with the gift of gab. He was quick to strike up a conversation with all he encountered and not one was left with any doubt of where he stood on any given topic.

At the age of 74, Noah passed from this life on Feb. 9, 2019.

He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter Kerrie Lynn Mullendore, grandson Jacob Riley Mullendore and sister Anna Mae Wainscott.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 52 years, Mary, son and daughter-in-law, Lee and Traci, son and daughter-in-law, Brian and Amanda, all of Bethel Acres, grandchildren, Josh and wife Jessika, Rowdy and wife Jamie, Heather, Mikayla, Hunter, Cooper, Taylor and Dakota, great-grandchildren Piper, Marley, Blaise, Braylon, Addyson and Sadie, brother, Kenneth and wife Bonnie of Wynnewood, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services are scheduled for Feb. 13, at 2 p.m. at Blackburn Chapel Baptist Church with Pastor Larry Sparks.
