Andrew “Andy” Noon
EDMOND - Andrew Palmer Noon (Andy), 79, passed away unexpectedly September 23, 2021, in his Edmond home. His beautiful wife, Janelle was by his side. Even though he was taken from us too soon, his loving heart and zest for life will serve as a beacon of light through all that knew and loved him. Andy is preceded in death by his parents, brothers Bill and John and grandson Mathew Thomas Noon. Andy is survived by the love of his life, Janelle. He was a proud father to Bill Noon, his wife Kathy, Tawney Fitzhugh, Bobby Noon and his wife Tonya. He was a loving Papa to his grandchildren: Mathew (deceased), Ryan and his wife Autumn, Kyle, Caden, Harper, Brenden, Cooper, Sydney and Presley. He was a loving brother to Greta, Mary, Bill (deceased) and John (deceased). Andy was born December 31, 1941, in Butte, Montana, the second of five children of Malcom William and Mary Delores Noon. Andy’s early life began with humble beginnings in Southern California. At the age of 21 he met and married Janelle. They made their home in Yukon, Oklahoma where they raised their three children. Andy had an entrepreneurial spirit and loved the art of salesmanship. In 1993 he founded APN Healthcare, growing it into one of the largest medical and textile businesses in the Midwest. Throughout the years Andy had many business accomplishments but his greatest accomplishment in life was his family and the life He and Janelle built over their 58 years of marriage. He loved watching his grandkids grow up and being part of their day to day lives. The greatest reflection of Andy Noon is in each of his children. His business mind, his passion to live each day with intention and his uncanny humor is evident in all of them. His love for travel and adventure is fostered in each one of his children and grandchildren. His generosity and passion for helping those in need and his ability to offer advice and guidance to those around him has left external footprints in the lives of so many, from anonymously giving to many in need, teaching an adult to read, and countless hours of selflessly giving guidance to people to enable to “live their best life”. Andy found happiness in helping those around him. A celebration of Andy’s life will be on September 29th, at 11:00 am at Yanda & Son Funeral Home in Yukon, OK. The family respectfully requests in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Coat-A-Kid through the OKC Public Schools Foundation. Services can be viewed livestream at https://youtu.be/jUMyXFilHg4.
