Gregory Jay Noble

March 19, 1966 - March 30, 2021


Gregory Jay Noble died in Salem Health Hospital on March 30, 2021 of a MRSA infection in his lungs.  He was born in Salem on March 19, 1966 to Robert and Nancy (Linscheid) Noble.  He leaves behind his partner in love, Sarah Frey and his parents. 

Greg graduated from Douglas McKay High in 1984 and enlisted in the U.S. Army shortly thereafter.  He served with the Blackhorse Regiment, 11th Armored Cavalry.  He was stationed in Fulda, Germany for two years maintaining Abrams M1 Tanks.

Later, he served in France during Operation Desert Storm.  He worked in several different industries in Salem and around the Valley.

In addition to Sarah, Greg loved his many friends in Salem.  He also loved all automobiles, water sports, heavy metal, birding, photography, and his best bud, his Yorkie “Cooter”.  He perfected the art of smoking meats in his Traeger BBQ and loved to tantalize his neighbors while doing so.  He took many, many wonderful photos of birds at their feeders – his specialty was photographing hummingbirds.

No funeral is planned; however, family and friends are invited to a celebration of Greg’s life at the Hong Kong Restaurant and Lounge at 3583 Commercial St. SE in Salem on April 17th from 11:00 am to 2:00pm.

Donations may be made to:   Friends of Felines, 4157 Cherry Ave. NE, Keizer, OR   97303
