He was an avid Penn State football fan, enjoyed restoring his 1960 Ford Thunderbird, furniture restoration and reading about history especially the Civil War. Dave had a great personality and enjoyed spending time with family and friends especially his grandchildren.  Dave was a caring and terrific father to three children; Wayne P. Noel and his wife Sue of Hanover, Daniel Noel and his wife Tammy of Abbottstown, and Sharon Noel of Hanover, three grandchildren; Philip, David and Rachel Noel, and one great-grandson; Tyler Noel, two sisters; Mary Ann Thomas and her husband Edgar and Pauline Hunter all of Hanover. He will be sadly missed by his dog Katie.  A Celebration of Life service will be held 2:30 p.m. Saturday, October 29, 2016 at Murphy Funeral Home, 501 Ridge Ave., McSherrystown with Rev.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Dave was a good friend of mine and we use to pal around together after we graduated from school and then I lost contact. He is now with the Lord and at peace. I know he was a great husband, father and grandfather. He will be missed greatly. My prayers are with the family at this time of loss.
