Noah Tolon, known as Noah Bear by his family, left this life Friday morning February 25, 2022, at age 16. Born in Anaconda, Montana, Noah loved the outdoors, hunting, hiking, his dogs, past time in Karate, the local skate park, his school, teachers and admin-staff, his first-job as an associate at Stokes Market/True Value Hardware, and forever having his brother, Colin as his sidekick. Mom, Heather Frankovich, Aunt and Uncle Leigha and Ken Bates with little sister-cousin Bronwen, grandmother Becky Reed, along with extended family his step-sister Kate Frankovich and her partner Josh Martinez, and all those who touched his life and were graced by his, will carry him in their hearts. He made a difference as he grew through his years from Head Start into the Anaconda Senior High School.
Noah’s short time in our world carried the trademark of decency, compassion, kindness, and intellect. The pickup truck he worked to buy was in joyful preparation of upgrades. Weight lifting had become a passion with enjoyment at Goosetown Health Club. He had plans to learn snow-boarding from his brother. Noah enjoyed computers, home improvement projects, learning proficiency with a variety of tools, video games, past participation in school football, and helping others by shoveling snow for neighbors and quietly contributing to community service. The intensely cherished bond with his brother, mom, aunt and uncle, and grandmother marked a young life of meaning. Noah, whose smile could light a room, would want his many mentors, including Ken Bates, Chris Eamon, Skip Gervais, Tommy Rollins, Josh Martinez, and friends, along with family who so loved him, to realize how valued they were; and he would wish for all of them to fulfill their dreams.
Noah’s mom, aunt and their families will hold a memorial celebration of life later in the Spring. Should any desire to contribute, Heather Frankovich would appreciate trees planted in his name. Please contact Leigha Bates for more information at 406.560.0849.
