ADAM NOVAK (published on April 22, 2006)

ADAM NOVAK Peacefully, with family by his side, Adam Novak passed away on Monday, April 17, 2006 at the Brandon General Hospital. Adam was born April 13, 1948 in Theodore, SK on the family farm to Mary and John Novak. He moved with his family to the Golden Stream District in 1958. After attending Golden Stream School he graduated from William Morton Collegiate in Gladstone in 1969 and continued his studies at Red River Community College, receiving a diploma in Electronic Technology in June 1971. He commenced work at Eden Photo directly after graduation, specializing in camera repair. He and two partners eventually bought the business and later Adam became the sole owner. He retired in 1999, selling his business and moved back to Gladstone. He lived independently until moving into Third Crossing Manor in March 2005. Adam loved to travel. He toured Australia, travelled across Canada, and visited friends in Hawaii several times. He enjoyed sports and was a season ticket holder for the Winnipeg Jets and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. A die-hard Bomber fan, he was not afraid to show his distaste for his team if they were losing. He attended Grey Cup games in Toronto and Vancouver. His interest in Amateur Radio put him in contact with several operators across the globe and he developed many friendships through these contacts. He volunteered for numerous local events, providing communications support and was recognized for his contribution on several occasions. Adam was predeceased by his parents, John and Mary, brother David, sisters, Virginia and Shirley, brother-in-law, Tom, and sister-in-law, Rose. He is survived by sisters, Elaine and Sylvia; brothers, Daniel and William; and several nieces and nephews. In accordance with Adam's wishes, cremation has taken place and a family graveside service will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Third Crossing Manor, Seven Regions Health Centre, and the ICU at Brandon General Hospital. Thank you to Rev. Ian Olive for being with us during Adam's last hours. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Canada, 1 Morley Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3L 2P4, or to a charity of one's choice. Clarke's Funeral Home, Gladstone in care of arrangements. Messages of condolence may be sent by visiting our website at
