Fresh and salt water fishing with friends was a favorite past-time. Noel was also a president of the Utah Bowling Association. He was a long-time member and board member of the Oakridge Country Club and arguabley the club's finest left-handed player. His participation in all sports is best expressed by his induction in the Softball Hall of Fame.
