I was saddened to learn of Bob’s passing. Bob was always a gentleman with a smile and kind word. I’ll miss our brief encounters at St. Mary’s Church.

Many fond memories of Bob. Learned a lot from him while we were members of Amsterdam Kiwanis Club. A very caring individual who always was concerned about others. He will be missed but forever remembered. Glad I was able to know him and spend time with him in this life. Condolences to the entire Novak Family.
Love, Marty Hughes, Linda, Martina and Matthew

To the Nowak family ~ I am so saddened to hear the news of Bob’s passing. I really liked your Dad so much. I have many memories growing up (our family of 10) kitty-corner to (your family of 12). I remember Billy being over to our house quite often. Those were the days where the air was filled with sounds of children playing outside every day. I will miss your Dad’s cheerful smile and be praying for comfort for all of you that loved him so dearly. 🙏 Mimi Minch Kosinski
