Nolan grew up in Delta county on Garnet Mesa. After graduating high school, he had an opportunity to attend Mesa Community College in Grand Junction, studying business. He proudly went to school and worked full time. He was drafted into the Army and spent most of his Army career on the East Coast during the Korean conflict. After being discharged from the Army Nolan continued his education getting a degree in business administration with his new degree in hand he was employed with several different oil field companies working all over the world.
In the late 80’s with sights of retirement he moved and settled down in Houston Texas. Shortly after he was recruited as a consultant in the oil field, a job he very much enjoyed.
In 1990 a very bold Lucille Cassidy spotted Nolan across a crowded restaurant and walked up to him and asked if she could join him at his table since the restaurant was very busy and the wait was over an hour. When they finally got a table and after a long conversation Nolan asked Lucille for her phone number. Nolan had to come to Colorado the following day to visit his parents. He had promised Lucille he would call and just like his word, he called her every evening while he was visiting home. This romance continued until they were married on December 27, 1993.
In 2016 Nolan and Lucille moved to Delta permanently making the old homestead there home.
Nolan is survived by the love of his life Lucille; sister Lois Weber; stepchildren Richalyn, Dorri, and Whitney along with children, and two nieces and one nephew. He is preceded in death by his parents.
