Dorence Benjamin Noteboom, 91, passed peacefully on January 28, 2024, with ‘The Girls’ lovingly by his side in Tigard, Oregon. Born October 24, 1932, in Bemis, South Dakota, to Isaac B Noteboom and Elsie E Husman Noteboom, he was the youngest of 4 boys. The dust bowl forced them to move to Tillamook, OR, where he met the love of his life, Janet, in middle school. They married August 2, 1953, in Eugene, OR, and were sweethearts for 67 years.
1st in his family to attend college, he earned a BA in Economics at Willamette University on a football scholarship, joined Sigma Chi fraternity and Air Force ROTC. After graduation in 1954, he served in the Air Force as a pilot on KC-97 refueling planes. He and Janet caught the travel bug as they moved for his postings, making life-long friends along the way. Their later travels included Japan, Mexico, Europe, and Hawaii.
Dorence and Janet settled in Cave Junction, OR, in 1958, joining his father-in-law, Delbert ‘Pop’ Day, as a Shell Oil Jobber. In the early 60s, he took over Day Oil Company, expanding it to two gas stations, a car wash, heating oil and furnace installation/repair, plus deliveries to loggers in the mountains. Known as a fair and generous businessman with a ready, warm smile, he was active in the community of Illinois Valley, serving on the Josephine County School Board, in the Lions Club, the Grants Pass Elks Lodge, the United Methodist Church, and was an avid golfer and bowler. A devoted family man, Dorence prioritized time for his daughters (The Girls) activities, family trips, and later his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
On retiring in 1987, they moved to Corvallis, OR, and Dorence worked another 15 years as a consultant on fuel additives for Cummings Transfer in Albany, OR. He and Janet enjoyed 30 years in Corvallis and were avid OSU Beaver fans. Dorence happily assisted Janet in her many endeavors for the Good Samaritan Hospital Auxillary and Meals on Wheels. He joined golf and bowling leagues and was active on the Homeowners Association Board where they resided.
Dorence is survived by his daughters Kathy (Doug) Johnson and Susan (Mark) Leas; 7 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Janet, his parents, his 3 brothers Donald (Don), Duane (Duke), Roland (Rolly), and Cousin Verdell (Dutch).
