Joseph C Polyi was born in Franklin Borough on Sept 21, 1940, at Home, which he was always proud to say, to Joseph A. and Olga (Cherepy) Polyi.

He was a dedicated family man, an avid trout fisherman and an organic gardener. He never missed a football game, wrestling match, event, Parris Island USMC, Academy or College graduation of either of his two sons, Joseph Jr & Thomas Polyi, of whom he was so proud.

He married the love of his life, Dolores (Ferretti) Polyi on August 22, 1964. His wife of 54 years was the “catch” of this old fisherman’s life.

He always went the extra mile to make holidays and family gatherings special, he and his wife made Christmas especially magical for their sons, grandson, nephews and nieces. He was always ready and willing to help anyone in need, whether stranded and in need of a ride or a dollar or a helping hand, he was always there at any hour.

He retired from Sussex County Plumbing Supply in June 2003, and spent as much time as possible with his Grandson Cristian born in 2004. It was magical watching them doing things together, especially fishing.
Joseph is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Dolores (Ferretti) Polyi, Sons Joseph C. & wife Crystal Polyi & Grandson Cristian Polyi of Coolbaugh, PA, Thomas M. & wife Ellen Polyi of Camp Verde, Az, Sisters Nancy Stowell and Susan Polyi, Brothers and Sisters in law: Wes Demarest, Bruno and Diane Ferretti, Chuck and Gerry France, Larry Ferretti and Kathleen and many beloved Nephews and Nieces, his 104 year old Cousin Helen (Barta) Kaposi of Hamburg, 102 year old cousin Emma (Toth) Zurey, and 100 year old Aunt Virginia (Dowe) Cherepy.

He was predeceased by his parents Joseph in 1982 and Olga in 2007 and Sister in Law Alice (Ferretti) Demarest in 2018. He was surrounded by loved ones, in good spirits and good humor and will be greatly missed by those that knew and loved him.
