Noah was born Nov. 17, 2004, in Iowa City. He was a ninth grader at Clear Creek Amana High School and was looking forward to a future in construction after graduating.
Some of Noah's favorite things were listening to rap music, Depot pizza, Sprite and Cheez-its. He enjoyed getting corn nuggets and Snicker Clipper Whippers from Jon's Ice Cream. He loved his phone, playing video games, wearing hoodies and joggers, his pets and Extra Mint gum. He was looking forward to getting his driver's license in November.
We are especially thankful for the special mentorship he received from both Brad Fox, principal at the middle school, and Whitney Eister, also from the middle school.
Noah will be remembered for blaring his music in the car and shower, his unique vocabulary and his special relationship with his siblings and cousins.
Noah is survived by his mother, Lisa Herring; siblings, Shane, Kiya and Lola; biological mother, Melody Peer; biological siblings, Jordan, Ryan, Allison and Alicia; his grandparents, Bob and Linda Herring; honorary grandparents, Glenn and Pat Kasper; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Noah was preceded in death by his cousin, Marco Mougin.
