John 'Uncle John''s Story
John "Uncle John" Polansky, 89, passed away Dec. 17, 2017, surrounded by his family whom he adored, and they loved him in return.
He is survived by his daughter, Cynthia (Polansky) and her husband, James, Hughes, their son, Chris and wife, Yuko, and great-grandson, Vincent; his son, Justin; his son, Dr. Eric Polansky and his wife, Norma, their sons, John and Jacob, and their daughter, Alexis; and his daughter, Tamara (Polansky) and her husband, Myron, Lischak, their sons, Nathanial and Alexander.
John is also survived by the mother of his children, Rosalee.
Sharon Steel was a part of his life for 41 years, as was his time at the original McDonald's in Hermitage, where he was fondly known as "Uncle John" to many of the valley's children.
Years ago, you could find him first on the scene of a fire or accident when he served with the Patagonia Volunteer Fire Department.
John served in the Army as a paratrooper during World War II.
To his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild, he was the greatest and will be dearly missed.
Hope you find your horse!
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Buhl Park Corp., 715 Hazen Road, Hermitage, PA 16148 with a notation for the John Polansky Tree Fund.
