Noah's family, Condolences to you all. I worked with Noah at Bi-State but in the Public Safety Dept which was at another facility so we didn't have a lot of day to day interaction. I do remember him as being a very nice person and fun to talk with when he came into the office. Check out the facebook group Metro 788 Retirees Bi State to read all the messages posted from some of Noah's co-workers after hearing of his passing. Here is the link - Rest in Peace

Oh, Brian. You look so much like your dad. And I see where he also liked to dress his best. That’s where you get your love for nice clothes. May God bless you in ways you can’t even imagine as you go through the grieving process. You are not alone. You are never alone. 🙏🏻
