In loving memory and honor of our dear dad, who we will miss more than words can say. Allen James Nowak served in the U.S. Navy in World War II. He was a dedicated and loving husband to my mom for 60 years. He was a loyal Brother, Uncle, Son, and Friend. He was not only the strongest and hardest working man in our lives, but the most inventive and resourceful. His early career as a union carpenter led him over many hurdles, but he never gave up his pursuit for success. His personality was quick-witted, and ingenious. He was extremely knowledgeable in politics, and generously supported them. He would do anything for his four children. We were all blessed to have had him as our teacher. Our many memories will live on forever. Our sincere thanks to our family and friends who attended his honorable service on Saturday June 16, 2012, at Knollwood Cemetery.
Allen’s family has chosen to request research support through the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Your donations are needed so that other men may survive. Thank you very much.
With best regards,
Marie A. Nowak
