​​​​​​​​​​​​​It is with the deepest sadness that I announce the passing of my father, Edward Pollak. I am so blessed to have had such an outstanding role model who taught me the importance of loving nature, education, music, and, most importantly, family and friends. Everyone who knows him can appreciate his loss.

On behalf of my family, thanks to everyone who made our father’s (husband’s) life so rich.


​Contributions in his memory may be made to Wilmington Wintergrass, Inc. www.wilmingtonwintergrass.org or to COPD Foundation www.copdfoundation.org.
