Tom was the owner of Tom Noe’s Park Ridge Auto group until 2007 and he lived life fast and furious. His life was filled with love, adventure, friends and family. Regardless of where he was, he had an impeccable sense of humor. He always carried with him the love of golf, but made room for the occasional hunting or fishing trip. Many hearts have been touched by his spirit; his sense of humor and infectious smile will be dearly missed. Those that knew him know he “never had a bad day in his life.”
