Noah Feehan Obituary, Death – Noah On April 12, 2023, Jerry Feehan, 39, of Cloquet, Minnesota, lost his valiant battle with Glioblastoma at home, surrounded by loved ones. Noah was born on September 20, 1983, in Burlington, Iowa, to Randy and Holly (Olson) Feehan. Before relocating to Minnesota in 1997, he spent his formative years in Iowa and Illinois.

In 2002, he earned his diploma from Cloquet High School. Before enlisting in the Air Force in 2005, he completed coursework at St. Cloud State University and Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. Noah served as an Avionics Technician for the 148th Fighter Wing out of Duluth, Minnesota, for 18 years. After his maiden flight in an F-16 and a number of other achievements, he was promoted to Master Sergeant in 2021.

Noah served in numerous overseas and domestic areas, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Korea. Even while receiving chemotherapy, he was always ready to deploy. After meeting the love of his life in 2006, Noah wed Jenny Anderson on August 16, 2008.

Noah was always willing to lend a hand to whoever needed it. His family was never the priority he made it. He was a good guy with a genuine desire to make friends. For a wide variety of issues, people turned to Noah. He was the go-to guy for fixing any technological device that was acting up. Every dog that walked by him knew he was a dog lover and would eventually find him. He was an avid sports fan and a walking encyclopedia of every major league athlete. He watched every Vikings game like it was his job.

Noah’s upbeat demeanor in the face of his diagnosis was an inspiration to many. He never backed down and showed he was tough from the start. Despite the countless doctor visits and drugs, he never lost his resolve. His grandfather Jerry Feehan, grandmother June Olson, and great-grandfather Robert Olson, as well as Noah and Jenny’s first dog Huey Lewis, all passed away before he was born.
