NOVAK, Peter
August 20, 2023

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Novak at the age of 71 on Sunday August 20, 2023 at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Center.

He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 45 years, Debbie, his daughters Christina (Mark) and Mandy (Marc), his adored grandchildren: Aubrie, Isabelle, Samuel, Chloe and Emily, his sister Cathy, and his numerous nieces and nephews. He joins his mother, Jozefa, and his father, Jozef, his sisters, Mary and Halina, his brother, Ted, and his much loved chocolate Labrador, Targa in eternal rest.

Although our hearts are broken, we are grateful for the professionals, family members and friends who supported Peter and helped him the last couple of years. Including the wonderful staff at the Royal Victoria Hospital (C-10 and D-9), and the compassionate nurses at NOVA West-Island. Special thanks to those who helped us give him the very best last days, including the staff and volunteers at Teresa Dellar.

The family will receive condolences at St. Edmund of Canterbury (105 Beaconsfield Blvd, Beaconsfield, Québec) at 10:30am on Friday September 1st. Funeral will be celebrated at 11:30 at the same location. A reception will follow in the parish hall. All are welcome to join, to share stories and remember Peter.

    Mandy, you and your Family’s devotion to your Dad throughout his challenging time was remarkable. I know he was so proud of all of you and he was so fortunate to have his family in his corner supporting him throughout. The Besners.

    I was very sad to hear of Peter’s passing. I spent my grade school years being babysat by Peter’s wife Debbie so the Novaks became like a second family to me. Peter was a very kind and warm person. I saw how he was a wonderful father to both Christina and Mandy but also an amazing husband to Debbie. He will definitely be missed but he will always remembered for the great moments I got to experience with him and his family. Rest in peace Peter, take care of your family from above like you did in life.
