On October 19, 1928, L C Nobles was born on Kimble Bend Ranch on Bee Mountain, 7 miles north of Kopperl, Texas in Bosque County. When he was 11 years old the family moved to Rogers Hill by Gholson, Texas in McLennan County. He enjoyed attending school in Tokio, Texas and at the age of 13, the family moved to Gholson.
In 1945 L C worked at Borden Milk Company. The most important period in his life was when he began his study of the Bible and applying Bible principles in his life. He was baptized January 15, 1950, and began building his life around his service to Jehovah God. L C served as an Elder in the early congregations of Jehovah’s Witness and continued until his death.
He will be dearly missed by all that knew him. He was a loving husband to his wife of 66 years. His biggest joy was helping many people understand the Bible. He enjoyed talking to people door to door and delivering talks in the Lake Air Congregation as well as coordinating and giving talks at conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
L C was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence Clifton Jack Nobles; mother, Ruby Velma (Meek) Nobles; sister, Lilly Mae Townley; and niece, Darlene Townley.
L C is survived by his dear wife, Frances Nobles in their home and extended family, Jim and Brenda Martin.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the Providence nursing staff and especially Dr. James Goodsett for giving L C the best care possible.
