Frank “Pap” Novotny, of Houston Pa, passed away on July 11, 2018 peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family. Devoted husband to his late wife Katherine. Father to Rebecca, grandfather to Nicole (Jen) Nathan (Allison) and Ryan. Great-grandfather to Aubri and Jaxon.
He was a part of the second graduating class at CHHS. Pap was a Veteran of the US Army where he served his country in WWII. A farmer at heart, following the war he came home to work on his family’s farm. Later in life, he became a postal worker then retired as postmaster from Avella after 28 years.
Pap loved the local sports teams, especially his grandkids softball (Greenleaf trophies) baseball and football teams. A loyal neighbor, member of CBG Senior Citizen Center, he always enjoyed gardening, cooking, listening to music, telling a good joke or discussing history and politics.
He helped raise his 5 grandchildren with love and patience, always having time to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small, never turning down the opportunity to swing them on the swingset or to sing a song.
