Bernard J. “Bernie” Noll

Bernard J. “Bernie” Noll was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to the late James and Sally Noll on May 12, 1966. Bernie started his firefighting career as a volunteer with Adams Township Volunteer Fire Department in February of 1989, then moved to Southwest Allen County Fire District on January 19, 1993. Bernie continued his volunteer role until 2001, when he transitioned into a full-time firefighter/EMT position. Bernie was a dedicated public servant for a total of 33 years when he passed away on January 14, 2022.

Bernie was dedicated to his family. He leaves behind a wife of 23 years, Roxi Noll; children, Lizzie, Riley, and Abby Noll; siblings, Rosemarie (Tim) Johnson, Jonathan (Paula) Noll, Michael (Melissa) Noll, Sara (Wayne) Unsell, James (Sarah) Noll, and Bryan (Annmarie) Noll; 15 nieces and nephews and one great-nephew; parents-in-law, Russ and Patsy Hodges; sisters-in law, Mindy (Adam) Tyler and Shelly (Dave) Myers; and brother-in-law, Daren Lehman.

Bernie loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter. He loved his time in the woods in his deer stand, even in the cold. He enjoyed the yearly trips to southern Indiana for turkey hunting. He enjoyed many years of owning his Harley and camping with family and friends. Bernie enjoyed cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. He could grill the best BBQ chicken. Bernie spent many years as a carpenter, and there didn’t seem to be anything he couldn’t fix or make. Most of his time was spent tinkering in the garage on his next project with his 80s rock turned up loud. Bernie was loving, kind, silly, and a good friend to all. He didn’t know a stranger and could talk for hours with anyone.

Bernie was a member of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. His faith was very important to him. He could always be counted on to help anyone in need and was often found helping friends and family with needed projects around their homes.

Bernie’s memory lives on in his friends, family, and children, who spend a lot of time reminiscing with “Bernie stories.” While Bernie is missed every day, his family takes solace in the knowledge that his heart was right with God, and he rests peacefully in His loving arms.
