Edward A. Novak

Edward A. Novak, age 74, passed away unexpectedly at Mercy Regional Medical Center on January 15, 2020.

He was born June 16, 1945 in Lorain where he lived his entire life.  He attended Admiral King High School and later went on to work for TRW until his retirement in 2017.  He was also a parishioner at Ss. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church before its closing.

Edward enjoyed fishing, campfires and anything that had to do with the outdoors, but most of all he was a devoted husband who loved his wife Judith unconditionally and was the “neighborhood grandfather” who loved his family and was a friend to everyone.

Surviving are his children, Christine A. Soto and Tim E. Novak; grandchildren, Edward, Jonathan, Olivia, Mackenzy and Jillian.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 26 years, Judith A. (nee Harper) Novak; daughter, Patty Novak; parents; John J., Sr. and Frances (nee Zore) Novak; brothers, John R, Joseph and Robert and sisters, Florence and Dorothy.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, January 25 from 9:30 A.M. until the time of Mass at 10:00 A.M. in St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish, 2143 Homewood Drive, Lorain.  Rev. John C. Retar will officiate.  Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery, Lorain.

I extend my sympathies to the family and friends. Hopping you keep happy memories. I remember how secure he made me feel when he was at the store when I was. Uncle Ed was protective I will miss that.

Uncle Ed was always protective. When I saw him in the store he made the world I live in seem safer. I will miss him being there.

I only met Ed a couple times, but I am so grateful he came into my cousins' lives. It is plain to see that he gave them a dad and excellent role model, and I have only heard great things about him! God bless the whole family.
