Israel “Izzy” Lee Noe

Israel “Izzy” Lee Noe, age 48, a resident of Veguita, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, Sept. 5, 2022. He passed unexpectedly in his sleep, at home with his family.

Izzy is preceded in death by his father, Dan Noe, of Belen.

He is survived by his beloved soulmate, best friend and wife, Stephanie; mother, Lolita Springer Noe; five precious children, Ian “Bean” (age 9), Isaac “Newton” (age 12), Dylan “Dilly Pickle” (age 15), Richard “Richie Ricardo” (age 20) and Ashley “Pooh” (Jeremiah); three grandchildren, Hunter, Anastasia and Tomas; brother, Jeremy “Jeremiah Beans” Noe; nephews, Cody “Doc” and Corban “Pancho” Noe; and niece, Gia “Phreddy Ann.”

Izzy is and forever will be missed more than words can say. He leaves his fingerprints on each of our lives, and a huge, Izzy-sized hole in each of our hearts.

Newt: “I miss you so much and I thank you for everything you ever taught me. I’m sad you won’t be here to make meatloaf for my 13th birthday in a few days. I love you, Dad.”

Dilly: “I miss you and I love you. You will always be my, “Mama Izzy,” just like when I was little.”

Richie Ricardo: “Thank you for always being here for me. The house is so empty without you here. I love you and I miss you.”

Stephanie: “You are and always will be the love of my life. I miss you so much. I love you more. Infinity.”

Jeremy: “I am proud to say my brother is an honest man, and my hero. I love you, Balky. For the record, I always looked up to you.”

Doc: “I miss you, uncle Izzy, and I can hear your voice saying, ‘Yeah, I know, I miss me, too.’”

Israel was born in El Centro, Calif., on Monday, April 8, 1974, the day Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run, breaking Babe Ruth’s record. He was only 48.

Izzy’s family was his world. He cherished spending time with them, cooking for them and playing video games with his boys. Izzy’s laughter brought joy to every holiday. He enjoyed making Christmas breakfast for everyone.

Izzy’s sense of humor is legendary. He loved baseball, football and Nascar. Izzy loved working hard and always gave everything he had. Izzy worked at Frank’s Septic Services in Belen with Lorenzo and the gang, at William’s Windmill in Lemitar, Walmart in Belen, and was currently working at New Mexico Travertine in Belen. He found joy in each of these jobs and the men he worked with.

Izzy also operated heavy equipment and worked in drilling both oil and water. He said his passion was water wells.

April 8, 1974 – Sept. 5, 2022: “That little dash there in between” was too short, but will stretch on forever through the lives he touched.
