Gerald “Gary” D. Noland, age 71, passed away on Thursday, May 7, 2020.

A happy born in Montana man who could design, build, repair anything; manage workers and complex projects; skillfully operate his beloved Bobcat; ride, pack and shoe horses; all while being a good husband, father and friend; however, he never conquered spelling or cancer.

Gary simply loved his wife (Sandra), daughters: (Kayleen, Yvonne, Lindella and Ronelle), parents: (Carroll and Vel), siblings and spouses: (Charlie, Laurel, Ken, Rhonda, Roy, Sherry, Dan, Terry, Kelly), grandchildren, sisters-in-law (Sam and Kay), nieces, nephew and friend, Frenchy.

He excelled as a construction superintendent for Williams Brothers Construction in Billings and as a Landscape Architect at Glacier National Park: Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project.

His parting advice: Change the oil every 2000 miles.

Due to Covid-19, a memorial service will be held at a later date.

David Holland just sent me Gary's obituary--what a good life he led. I remember seeing you two in Ronan in 2018 (after some 55 years) and could tell you were a happy couple and good friends. And so youthful! It's sad to hear that he's gone so soon. I'm sorry for your loss. -Tom Kidder

Sandy,

I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Gary. I was struck by how happy he looked in his photo. And playful. I haven't seen either of you in many years but have kept ups with you through my parents. They both thought he was a good man and mentioned both of you often. I will be thinking of you.

To Gary's Family;
We would like to offer our condolences on Gary's passing. John worked with Gary at William's Brothers & has many memories. I will always remember his passion for candy. He would buy a full sack a day--it was his lunch & break time snack. And he never gained any weight! May God guide you through the days ahead. Audrey & John Stoican
