This is what I want to say about my love, Mark- He loved and provided always for Lizzie and Sam, sharing his passions and always held them in his heart first and constant. He had his favorites, like the really big bubbles, water balloon sling shot, fishing, ginger bread houses. We were a family, we had all the holidays and birthdays. Mark loved his Lizzie and Sam he always always cherished and cared for them. Mark was so creative and oh my his talent. His food was what drove him and the care and love he had for his profession showed in every dish, meal or desert. He loved his cooks and staff and respected Jim Powell and Tom Coghill for the craft and their passion for cooking. The Novy house had the best smells coming from the kitchen, all were welcomed to enjoy his wonderful food. Now for his love of music, Mark was a musical historian. His knowledge of who's who and the information of which musician featured on any album and even live albums, he knew where it was recorded and who played back up. Mark made music apart of our everyday lives and his love for music will be remember and admired by family and friends from the thousand of songs he so graciously shared. Mark is my true love, my guy. We all are blessed to have him, his kindness, his honesty. He was a good man that lived a good life.

Mark was truly a genuine character. A loving father, husband and brother. He was an excellent chef . He would fish any where and any day of the week if he was asked or could convince you to go fishing with him. His taste for good music was endless. He always had a good joke to share. He loved to drive the kids on his bus route....... He LOVED to read at least seven books at a time. He had a caring big heart ,and I love him and miss him so much...I know he's in heaven now and would get upset with me to know I'm so broken hearted that he had to leave us so early in his life. Love you Big Brother.
