Michael was born at Potters Emergency Hospital on Front Street in Beaufort on June 19, 1941, to Earl M. and Edna Adams Noe. He was a loving and devoted son, husband and father and had a heart of gold. He was a principled man who believed in doing the right thing and always being truthful. He did not suffer fools lightly.
After graduating from high school he enlisted in the Coast Guard and was stationed in Cordova, Alaska. That began his love affair with the state of Alaska. He spent over 30 years there, first on the Coast Guard Cutter, Sedge, then as Nursing Home Administrator and later as Chief Accounting Administrator and construction coordinator at Providence Hospital in Anchorage. He loved all things of Alaska – the snow, the fishing, the hunting, and its great independence.
In 1990, he returned to North Carolina to be with his high school sweetheart and first love, Jeanette.
Michael was a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Beaufort, Franklin Lodge 109, Ancient Free & accepted Masons, and the Carteret County Shrine Club.
