In Tribute and Honor of Past Chief Drexel Noble

The Kearney Fire & Rescue Protection District is sorry to announce the passing of Kenneth “Drexel” Noble, on Thursday, December 4, 2014. Drexel served as a member of the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department in the 1960’s and served as Chief from 1964 through 1966. Drexel was very instrumental in getting the junior fire department established and served as a mentor to many of the young individuals that chose to participate on the fire department. He was also the leading force behind Kearney participating in many of the fire department competitions. Drexel’s leadership abilities continued on with his personal life after leaving Kearney working for a construction company and then starting his own. He constructed several buildings here in Kearney and was known for his attention to detail.

Our thoughts and prayers for his entire family, his legacy will continue on here for many years.

The station flag will fly at half staff on Monday, December 8, 2014 in tribute to Past Chief Drexel Noble. Read more.
