Odis Duane Nobles

August 28, 1946 — October 21, 2020

Odis Duane Nobles, age 74, of Hot Springs, gained his wings on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

He was born on August 28, 1946, in Reichert, Oklahoma, the son of Odis Athel Nobles and Velma Mae McLaughlin Nobles. He was preceded in death by his father; four grandparents; one infant sister; and his younger sister, Glenda Joyce Kelley.

Odis was his daddy’s sidekick from the time he was a young boy, roofing houses with both parents. He helped contribute to the construction of Hot Springs Village by hauling rocks and gravel and he also worked for the forestry service for many years before retiring due to disabilities.

In his later years, he rode miles with his brother-in-law, looking for deer, something he loved to do, even though he didn’t hunt. He loved fishing and riding in the boat. Odis also enjoyed spending time with his grand-niece and grand-nephews. He was loved by all who knew him and he never met a stranger.

Odis is survived by his mother, Velma Mae Nobles of Hot Springs; his sister, Velma Jean Reichardt of Hot Springs; his brother-in-law, Kenith Kelley of Hot Springs; one niece, Melissa Black; three nephews, Larry Kelley, Ricky Kelley and Cory Reichardt; two grand-nieces; four grand-nephews; numerous extended family members; and a host of wonderful friends.

Graveside services will be held at 10:00 AM, Monday, October 26, 2020, in the New Mount Pleasant Cemetery with Bro. George Vincent officiating.

Arrangements are under the direction of Davis-Smith Funeral Home, Hot Springs.

Guest registry is at www.davis-smith.com.
