Noah Hudson Bates, age 11, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 15th, 2022, following a tragic UTV accident.

There are no words to adequately capture the spirit of Noah Bates. A boisterous and happy child, Noah was followed everywhere by the laughs he gifted to those around him. He was lively, outgoing, and funny; he never let an opportunity for fun pass him by. Noah enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding dirt bikes, and shooting guns. He lived his daily life to the fullest, ensuring the happiness of everyone around him.
Noah loved to be outside, especially playing Bearcat football and Fort Worth Cats baseball. Noah loved all kinds of music, from rap to Christian, vintage cars and trucks, and especially spending time with his family and friends. Noah’s infectious smile, outgoing nature, and love for those around him will be carried in the hearts of everyone who knew him. Noah adored his family, he was the brightest spirit in every room, and he will be immeasurably missed, by all.
