Not sure what to say?

To the entire Novak family, please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Glenn. As a classmate, first at Murray Hill School, then at Benedictine High School, Glenn was a joy to know. Glenn deserves so much credit for being an integral part of the resurgence of the Benedictine football program in the mid-1960's, and he was incredible to watch. God Bless this Man of Benedictine. May he rest in Peace.

I loved sports, too!

Glenn Novak was a talented Football player! His son, Frank , was quite a good player, too! Like father, like son! My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Novak family.

Rest in peace.

To the entire Novak family I humbly offer my sympathy and prayers for you all to be at peace with the passing of your husband, father and grandfather. When walking the halls of Benedictine with him from 63-66 or watching him on the field Glen was a sprit of joy. He will always be in the "Hall of the Greats" as he earned it and vividly displayed the character to be a lighthouse, a benchmark for all to rise to. God Bless You All. Welcome Home Glen.

Dear Joan and family, very sorry to hear of the passing of Glenn, he was a very special man. Frank in my opinion Glenn was and always be one of the pillars of Benedictine H S. and his family.
God Bless to all of you - Take Care
