Anthony J Novicki was almost 89 when he died in the presence of his immediate family on 9 August 2019 after a few years of declining health. Per his wishes, there will be no services at this time. Tony is survived by the love-of-his-life Joan, to whom he was married for 66 years, his daughter Deborah, his son Gregory, and his daughter-in-law Marie. He is now with his beloved son Mark.

At his venerable age, there are too many of the Novicki family line who predeceased Tony to list (parents and 6 brothers). But his aunts, Helen and Bronsie, whom he visited daily and took to church every Sunday while they lived in Westborough, deserve special mention. He is also survived his by younger brothers Terrence and Jack, and the many children and grandchildren of his brothers, and their spouses.
Since Tony married Joanie in 1953, Tony was very close to his mother-in-law Jennie, and the Pukanasis and Tresca families. Since Gregory married Marie in 1995, Tony also got to enjoy the Campbell clan.
Tony lived in South Boston, Natick, Westborough, and finally Marlborough on Fort Meadow Lake. He loved sitting on the waterfront patio with a glass of red wine doing his crossword puzzles while enjoying the beautiful views, wildlife, and watching people having fun in all sorts of watercraft on the lake.
Tony was highly motivated in his work life, moving easily from hands-on technical work, to service management at RCA, then to production management at Bose Corporation from which he retired in 1995 after a long career. What also characterized Tony was his popularity and fun-loving and competitive nature, whether playing softball and bowling as a young man, or as an avid golfer and a member at Marlborough Country club for 25 years. Even in his early 80s he could still break 100 and his tee shot was always down the “FM” [golfers will get this ;-)]. But what most characterized Tony was his love for his family and friends, fondness for traveling, and, especially, his litany of jokes. He will be sorely missed. It’s time to say goodbye (Con te partiro).
