Michael and Judy Kalka would like to express our deepest sympathy to Noell family. I have known Ted Noell many years as an attorney from working at the Courthouse back in the early 1980's. We will always remember Ted at the polka dances.

Ted was a true gentleman and a classmate at Riley, although he was a year behind me. Every time I happened to see Ted he would say "Thank you for your State Police service.

I first met Ted when I was the nurse in Dr. Louis Sandock’s medical office. Ted was a friend of Dr. Sandock. Ted became the attorney for my father and assisted my family with legal arrangements on my dad’s passing. I will miss seeing him at Angelo’s restaurant. My sympathy to the family.

Our parents were friends. Ted took me to my Schools first dance. There were no mention of his Brother in the obituary. Sorry for your lost. My prays are with your family.

I am sorry to learn of Ted's passing. We were friends in DeMolay during high school and roommates at IU for 4 years and had a wonderful time and learned much from each other.
Sadly, our paths and groups of friends diverged over the years. I have thought many times of reconnecting but, life and circumstances always got in the way.
I am sorry.

I graduated Riley in 1954, knew Ted pretty well, always at or near the top of his class. I never saw him again after leaving Indiana, now living in Northville, Michigan.

Expressing condolences to the entire family. I haven’t seen Ted for many years. My grandfather, Herman Hoekstra, was married to his mom, Lily. I remember Ted as a kind man.

I met Ted when we worked together on my one and only divorce. Many years later he needed a secretary and I was happy to oblige. He was always a great man to work with and we had a wonderful relationship as friends. I learned so much from him and and always enjoyed the clients. I ended up being office manager and will never forget his kindness to me and all his clients and friends. I had stayed in touch with him and would call to reminice every once in a while. He would always say; "What can I do for you?" Well Mr. Noell... you have done quite a bit actually. Your forever friend, Cyd
