John Alexis Novack, 59, of Schwenksville, finished his final marathon and entered into eternal life on June 30, 2013 surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Troy, N.Y. Jack was the son of the late Alex and Edith F. Riggione Novack and the devoted husband of Josie Camaratta Novack.
A graduate of Siena College, he had a long and distinguished career in the pharmaceutical industry and was employed by Research Pharmaceutical Services (RPS) in Fort Washington, Pa. as the Director of Clinical Research. Previously he worked for several years in a similar capacity for Sanofi, US in Malvern.
Jack participated in numerous running competitions over the years including marathons in Philadelphia, Chicago and other major cities. He especially enjoyed running in Valley Forge Park.
Jack loved to travel and his recent trip to Italy with his wife Josie has been the source of many warm memories which will last forever. He also enjoyed dining out with Josie, reading great books, rooting for the N.Y. Giants, and spending quality time with his beautiful daughters.
He had a strong work ethic and a warm and friendly demeanor, and he was loved and respected by all who knew him. He will be deeply missed and always remembered.
In addition to his devoted spouse, Jack is survived by his two loving daughters, Jaime Novack (Mark Grant) of Ipswich, Mass., Erica Novack of Troy, NY, and a stepson, Charles Kierklo of Wayne, Pa. He is also survived by his brother, Michael J. Novack (Rhona) of Loudonville, N.Y., two aunts, two nephews and several cousins.
