James Sloane Novak

August 22, 1947 - September 7, 2023

James Sloane Novak, 76, of Sunnybank, died peacefully on September 7, 2023 with his two favorite women by his side: his wife, Anne, and his daughter, Jess.

He is also survived by his devoted brother-in-law, Bob Montgomery; his beautiful service dog, Finn; and his dear friends, including David Duani, J. and Beth Mahood, and Rob Vincent, among many others.

He loved dogs, women, and horses — not necessarily in that order.

A memorial service will be held in his honor at 2 p.m. on September 23rd at Hill & Wood Funeral Home in Charlottesville. We invite you to make a donation to Paws with a Cause or Sentara Martha Jefferson Cancer Care Center to celebrate his memory.
