Gregory Christopher Novack

December 13, 1948 - October 18, 2018

Gregory Christopher Novack, 69, of Hendersonville, passed away Thursday, October 18, 2018 at Mission Hospital in Asheville after a brief, but severe, illness.

Born in Detroit, MI, Gregory was a son of the late Frank Joseph Novack and Stella Tess Novack Cates. He was a graduate of Schafer High School in Southgate. He lived in western North Carolina for the past 26 years and attended Mud Creek Baptist Church. He loved music, was a talented trumpet player, and played many other instruments over the years. His children and grandchildren were the pride of his life and he spoke of them often. Also, an animal lover, he especially loved his three dogs.

A compassionate, attentive, and caring person, he made his career in nursing look easy and touched the lives of many people throughout his medical career. He spent the final years before retirement working hospice at Elizabeth House.

Gregory leaves to honor his memory, his loving wife of 45 years, Deborah; his son, Andrew Novack (Melissa) of Hendersonville; his daughter, Amanda Buckner (Wesley) of Fletcher; his grandchildren, Thomas and Evan Novack and Theodore, Marlene, and Sonny Buckner; his brothers, Frank Novack (Barbara) and Fred Novack (Sharon); and numerous nieces, nephews and life-long friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a granddaughter, Victoria Ann Buckner.

A memorial service will be held Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Mud Creek Baptist Church with visitation the hour prior to the service. Pastor David Stanford will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Gregory’s honor to Elizabeth House, 581 S. Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC 28731.
