Nolan helped build and addition to our home and build the deck in 1987. That was a long time ago but I still remember how much we enjoyed him. He was especially attentive to the children who all clamored to be around him. He really was a masterful carpenter. He asked me how I wanted the deck built and I told him to just do what he wanted and he created a masterpiece. My husband passed away in January and I hope they get to meet each other up there and catch up on the years between. He will most surely be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Nolan was such a great man. We send you all our deepest sympathy.

With heartfelt sympathy and prayers, my condolences to Barbara and family. Nolan was a diligent and caring home teacher who became a friend. He was a dynamic speaker and gave great gospel lessons. He loved to travel and serve the Lord throughout the world. He was a talented carpenter and loved building houses. Nolan has gone to build a mansion for Barbara and their large eternal family. A life well-lived, thou good and faithful servant.

I have always looked up and admired Nolan since working with him at WS doing construction and maintenance and he mentoring me to take over when he retired. He has always been an inspiration to me.
