Obituary of John F. Pogozelski

John F. Pogozelski Sr., beloved father and grandfather, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at Ellenville Regional Hospital at 84 years old. He was born on April 27, 1935, in Shamokin, PA, to John J. and Mary Pogozelski. The most important thing in his life was his family. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. He had a passion for sports. He grew up playing baseball, football, and basketball, and as an adult he spent many hours coaching his children and others in the community. Later in life bowling became one of his favorite pastimes. He owned a pro shop and gave countless lessons to aspiring bowlers.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the nurses and staff of Ellenville Regional Hospital for their excellent care and compassion and to the LVAD team of Westchester Medical Center for gifting John with 3 extra years of life.
