Sad to loose such a giant of a man in the Ford world. Noel was a great leader in his time. The Howard family are justified to be very proud of Noel. Regards Dennis Greenwood, Arnoldt & Greenwood Kerang (Ford Dealers).

Oh, this was so lovely! Perhaps the only thing to lessen the sting is that this isn’t good bye, just ‘see you later’. Absolutely remarkable life and cannot wait to read the autobiography. My heart aches for all the grandkids who couldn’t attend but what a beautiful tribute they made. Xx
