Lee - Harold H. Noyes, 91, passed away September 19, 2018, at the Maine Veterans Home in Bangor. He was born September 16, 1927 in Houlton, the son of Garth A. and Mary (McLean) Noyes.
He was a graduate of Houlton High School, the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire with a Master's in zoology. Teaching students was the love of his work life. Many former students often say he was humorous and made the subjects taught interesting. He retired as a teacher of several subjects, most notably biology and driver's education, having taught at high schools in Hermon, Lubec, MDI, and Lee Academy. He retired militarily as a veteran of WWII with service in the Army Air Force and the Maine Air National Guard in Bangor.
He was a Master Mason in the Springfield Lodge. In retirement, he remained active in his community having served on hospital and credit union boards to include being a trustee of Lee Academy and moderating town meetings. Harold was very handy with tools and built his home and Kamp in Lee in the 1970s. He was known to sell tickets for the Lee Historical Society Supper fund raisers, monitor many of the Lee Museum openings to the public, and served meals-on-wheels.
He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was in "heaven on earth" when he was with his buddies doing the same, especially gathering at the hunting camp called the "Owl" where he was an accomplished cook and cribbage player. He enjoyed farming and tended huge gardens and flowers. Over the years, he had owned many animals including his beloved pet cow named "Bess".
Harold is survived by his wife of 67 years, Vera Ann (Morrison) Noyes; two sons, Alan Noyes of Mattamiscontis and his fiancée, Glenda Shorey of Lincoln, and Thomas Noyes of Millinocket; a grandson, Matthew Noyes of Houston, TX; one brother, Lawrence and his wife, Betty, of Brewer; one brother- in-law, David Morrison and his wife, Donna of Levant; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a son, Michael Harold Noyes and a daughter, Barbara Jean "Bunny" Noyes.
A private graveside service will be led by brother-in-law, Pastor David Morrison at Woodlawn Cemetery in Lee in the near future.
