CHARLES 'CHUCK' NOVAK:  1929-2009

Improved    Safety    In    The    Nuclear,    Petroleum    Fields

        Charles "Chuck" Novak, who played an international role in improving safety standards within the nuclear and petroleum fields, died Tuesday, Dec. 15, surrounded by family in his Oak Brook home, his daughter said.

        Mr. Novak, 80, was born in Chicago and served in the U.S. Coast Guard during the Korean War.

        He graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in engineering, which led to a career in the petroleum and nuclear industries, said his daughter, Carrie. Mr. Novak's first job was in Denver, but he moved back to Chicago not long after.

        In 1957, Mr. Novak married his wife, Norma, after pursuing her for about a year. The two met at a Presbyterian church event in Green Lake, Wis.

        "He always knew what he wanted and got it," his daughter said jokingly.

        Professionally, Mr. Novak became known for his involvement in building nuclear power plants and cable bridges, particularly in his efforts in anti-rusting technology, said his son, Craig.

        Mr. Novak also helped develop the diesel fuel calibration fluid standard for measuring the thickness of diesel fuel.

        Mr. Novak's career allowed him to travel to Europe, Asia and South America, often accompanied by his wife. He also loved to travel for leisure, his son said.

        Once word of Mr. Novak's death was announced, the family received letters from customers all over the world, his son said.

        "He was a very principled man," he said of his dad's integrity with his customers.

        Mr. Novak was a member of the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, formerly known as the American Society of Lubrication Engineers; the Association of Diesel Specialists and the Post-Tensioning Institute.

        Other interests included hiking, swimming in the ocean and exploring nature, passions that inspired his children to be more adventurous.

        Mr. Novak also is survived by his wife and two grandchildren.

        A service will be held at 11 a.m. Jan. 8 in Christ Church of Oak Brook.
