Donald Alvin Noirot, 76, of Freetown, passed away Wednesday, March 2, 2016, surrounded by his loving family.

After graduating from high school, he joined the United States Army during the Vietnam War, where he served as a cook. After the war, he worked at General Tire and Kelly Box, both of Fort Wayne.
