Joe DeNoble Sr. d. 1988

Music is made in many different ways; no one was more aware of it than Joseph DeNoble Sr., or just plain ‘Joe.’ The Musicland store he created and operated was a palace of musical instruments and a place of learning.

Joe played most every instrument but was quick to emphasize, he played them all badly, except for the accordion and Hammond organ.

‘Music is Happiness’ was his motto and Joe DeNoble’s contribution of instruments and sound equipment to charitable functions of the day, remains legendary to this day.

Musicland benefited from Del Crary’s promotion which aided the excellent quality of service; some of the area’s foremost musicians staffing the teaching roster.

Joe’s generosity and accomplishments served as a lively springboard for careers of countless musicians in the area.

Mr. DeNoble passed away in 1988 after a courageous battle with cancer.
