John Paul Novarese

John Paul Novarese, 52, of McRae, Arkansas unexpectedly passed away on January 19, 2024. He was born December 30, 1971, in Memphis, Tennessee to Donna and John Edward Novarese.  

 

John was a loving father, devoted husband, and true friend. He was a hard worker that always provided for his family and never asked for anything in return. John was a Christian man that believed in the power of prayer. His hobbies included fishing, playing the guitar, and most of all playing pool. Being in a pool hall was his home away from home, as we all know, and gave him joy and friendship that brought great meaning to his life. John made sure that he was always available to friends and family if he was needed. From changing a tire, giving a ride, or just an ear to listen, he was always there. When it came to his wife and children, he was passionately protective, supporting, and loving. His family was his heart and pride. No one could ask for a better father and husband, especially when it came to being loved unconditionally. John's career included being a bricklayer and factory work. 

 

John was preceded in death by his mother Donna Novarese. He leaves behind his wife, Jennifer Novarese; daughter's, Rebbeca Novarese Adam and Brittany Novarese; granddaughter, Heather Adam; father, John Edward Novarese; sister, Jessica Novarese; brother, James Gray; and nieces Amber Lewis and Charlie Dority Novarese, plus many more family and friends that will miss him greatly.

 

The family will receive family and friends prior to the funeral service, Tuesday, January 23, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel at Smith Westbrook Funeral Home, 404 W Dewitt Henry, Beebe, Arkansas.  Funeral services will begin at 2:00 p.m. with the burial to follow at Weir Cemetery.
