He also is survived by numerous cousins in Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Oregon and Poland.Born to Polish immigrants in the Nicetown section of Philadelphia on Dec. 20, 1909, he was predeceased by his parents, Alexander Nowacki and Helen Baran Nowacki, and brothers, Joseph, Edward and Alexander. Ellen (Aniela) Siek Nowacki, his wife for 69 years, passed away in 2006.An honors graduate of Germantown High School, Philadelphia, he earned academic scholarships to Temple University and Temple University Medical School, graduating in 1935. For 52 years, he practiced general family medicine in Pottstown, specializing in pediatrics.

In 1988, he retired at age 79.During World War II, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, suspended his practice, and was chief of anesthesia at the 38th Evacuation Hospital, co-founded by Gen. George C. Marshall, and deployed from Fort Bragg, Charlotte, N.C. The unit was made famous by war journalist Ernie Pyle in Time and Life Magazines for the heroic work of its doctors and nurses positioned directly behind the ever-moving frontlines of battle. During his assignment, approximately 50,000 soldiers were treated by the famous 38th, a prototype of the future M.A.S.H. units of the Korean War. His tours of duty from 1942 to 1945 included England, North Africa, Algeria, Tunisia and Italy, where his work saving blood during the Anzio campaign earned him an Army Bronze Star. He received his honorable discharge with the rank of major at the war’s end, and returned to his private medical practice.Renowned as a popular general practitioner and pediatrician in Pottstown for over five decades, he maintained his medical office on High Street across from The Hill School with no support staff, and required no appointments made by his patients. They could be seen daily, sitting on the front porch and along his office steps in good weather, indicating that “Doc’s” waiting room was filled to capacity, for morning, afternoon and evening office hours. He made multiple hospital rounds each day, house calls at all hours of the day or night, and was valued for his ability to speak in fluent Polish, Slovak and Germanto with his patients in Montgomery, Berks and Chester counties. Well into his late 90s, he read books in Polish, German and Latin.A charter and founding member of the Pottstown Symphony Orchestra, he was assistant concertmaster, playing first-violin for over 32 years with them. He started lessons at age 9 in 1918 in Philadelphia, performed professionally there during college and medical school and played well into his late 90s. He also played the piano and cello, and enjoyed composing. An accomplished artist in oils and pen and ink, his works graced the walls of his home and office, as well as local art exhibits in Pottstown in the 1960s.Scholarship was a hallmark of his life. He was most proud of his daughter, Kathleen, for earning multiple masters degrees and her work as a Catholic journalist, writing for a Bishop and Cardinal Archbishop, both natives of his beloved hometown of Philadelphia. And, he was always proud of his son-in-law, Ray-Eric, for his native French language proficiency, and headships of private schools in New York and Virginia.Dr. Nowacki was a member of the Brookside Country Club, Pottstown, for 60 years, and the Polish National Alliance for most of his life. For over 70 years, he was a parishioner at St. Peter Catholic Church, Pottstown.
