Noah W. Comes Obituary

Pallbearers will be his brothers: Ethan and Connor Comes, Colin Breske, and his cousins: Austin Hulscher, Nicholas and Andrew Comes, Parker and Brenden Evjen.


Honorary pallbearers will be his sisters, Erin and Kylie Comes; and the class of 2024.


From a young child with mountains of energy to a curious boy with a mind full of countless questions to explore his world grew a young man who dreamed of his future, and respected the love of his family and friends.


Forever in our hearts with his unwavering sarcasm and endless laughter, amazing humor, and immeasurable intellect, we celebrate Noah’s life. While we ache and mourn our loss here, we find peace in knowing he is in the most beautiful seat in his forever Home. Noah was most definitely loved. His inner strength and perseverance proved that his disease did not define who he was. Noah proved his character was perfect and wonderfully made. Now his journey on earth is done and he can rest for life eternal.


Noah William was born to Brian and Lisa Comes on March 11, 2005, the youngest child of five. Being the youngest, he was the comedian of our family. We learned so much from Noah’s amazing confidence. From a young age, he had the ability to be his own person and was always willing to make people laugh.


Noah grew up on his family’s farm outside of Waverly. He was preparing for the future through the various activities he was involved in while he attended Waverly/ South Shore School. While attending school, he participated in football, all-state choir, band, math contests, oral interpretation, the all-school play, National Honors Society, and National History Day. He did so well at National History Day that he traveled to Washington D.C. to compete for nationals with fellow classmates.


He enjoyed playing the drums in the pep band, and you would often see Noah dancing and banging on the bass drums at many sporting events. Noah also was an avid reader, enjoying adventure and fantasy novels.

He completed a summer time rotation as a legislative page in Pierre, SD where he enjoyed talking to the politicians and making friends from all over the state.


After surviving cancer in 2009, Noah attended a cancer survivor camp called “Camp Bring it On” located northwest of Watertown at Joy Ranch. Noah always told us stories about his time at camp and having fun with other survivors. He loved games, but mostly video games and card games involving strategy. He spent a lot of time bonding with friends and family playing games either on the console or at the dinner table.


Noah was a man of few words, but when he did speak it came from the heart. He was a man of faith, seeing the priests numerous times during hospital admissions for communion and to pray with him and his family. Noah was baptized and received first communion at St. Joseph’s Catholic church and confirmed in Christ

at Immaculate Conception parish.


Noah was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma on July 6, 2009. He fought cancer when he was 4 years old and beat it for the first time. Unfortunately, his cancer reappeared on September 9th, 2023 and he fought it for 10 months, starting his battle in Sioux Falls, SD, and concluded it in Denver, CO.


Noah entered the gates of heaven at Denver Children’s Hospital at 12:56 pm surrounded by family, while singing and listening to music.


Noah is survived by his parents, Brian and Lisa Comes of Waverly; his siblings, Ethan Comes of Huron, SD, Erin (Colin Breske), Connor and Kylie Comes of Waverly, SD; his grandmothers, Joyce Comes of Waverly, SD, and Dorothy (Harlan) Barck of Marshall, MN.


He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Loyal Evjen and Jim Comes.
