Robert “Bob” E. Nowak of Manchester, NH died on Sunday, June 21st at Catholic Medical Center. He was born in Brooklyn, NY on November 2, 1943, to John and Adele Nowak.


Bob was a graduate of Walt Whitman High School in Huntington, NY, and Adelphi University. He served his country for two tours of duty in the Vietnam war as a United States Marine. Bob was employed by Mobil Oil Corporation for thirteen years before his entrepreneurial spirit kicked in. He spent the remainder of his career operating car wash, ski area, restaurant, and convenience store businesses.


He is survived by a son Christian and his wife Whitney and three grandsons Connor, Ethan, and Braden of Hampton Falls; son Craig, partner Barbara and grandson Skyler of Goffstown; former wife Robin Carlisle of Bedford; his brothers Peter of Boston, MA and Gary and wife Peggy of Crystal Beach, FL and his sister Adele Youngs and husband Bill of Oneonta, NY.


Along with his erratic boating and mediocre carpentry skills, Bob will be remembered for being the the nucleus of his direct and extended family, and as a fun-loving, caring soul who helped many during his journey.
