Obituary

Noble R. Benson, 97, of Greeley, CO passed away October 24, 2019 at Grace Pointe Continuing Care in Greeley. He was born February 15, 1922 in Caldwell, ID.
Noble married Mary Sue McElrath on November 1, 1951 in Greeley. She passed away on November 2007.
During his life Noble was involved in farming, truck driving and heavy equipment operation. In 1940 Noble ventured into his own business when he bought a 1934 Chevy flatbed truck, hauling potatoes, onions and wheat throughout Idaho. He also spent time logging in the mountains of northern Idaho and worked for his brother-in-law in road construction.

In 1951 he moved to Colorado and joined the Teamsters Union as a certified truck driver. He worked on the South Boulder Creek-Gross Dam Project driving a rock-hauling dump truck. He narrowly escaped disaster when lightning struck the shed storing dynamite and his truck was pelted with flying rock and debris from the explosion. Nine workers were killed and Noble survived with several injuries.
From 1953-1984 Noble drove truck for Peter Kiewit, hauling asphalt and gravel. He also operated a 50-ton rock hauler and drove from Sheridan, WY to Denver and to Tucumcari, NM and Vail Pass.
He lived in Idaho, California, and Colorado. He had resided in Greeley since moving from Gilcrest, CO in 1994.

Noble is survived by his son, Rickie Benson of Greeley; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Sue; and sisters, Georgia Larson, Mildred Peterson, Alice Weitz, and Barbara Jean Haines; and his brother, John Benson.
Funeral Service will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, October 31, 2019 at Adamson. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

Noble was a wonderful neighbor and friend. I was always amazed at his energy level and his ability to recall tiny and significant events throughout his lifetime, he was "sharp as a tack" right up to the end. After Sues passing.. he talked of how much he missed her. "Go rest high on the mountain... your work on earth is done". RIP old friend and rejoice in your reunion with Sue, your family and old friends. You will be missed. Joe and Helen
