Paul "Ron" Pollack Obituary

Troy - It is with profound sadness to announce the passing of Paul Ronald (Ron) Pollack on January 1, 2024. Ron was 81 years old and died after a long, brave battle with Parkinson’s disease. Ron was born in Troy, NY on March 13, 1942 and resided in Troy all his life. Ron was a graduate of Troy High School and the Albany College of Pharmacy. Ron worked as a hospital pharmacist for many years at the former St. Mary’s Hospital in Troy as well as the former St. Clare’s Hospital in Schenectady. Ron built a wonderful life together with his wife Marilyn to whom he was married for more than 48 years. They enjoyed many trips and cruises together, and, in more recent years, spending time in Florida during the winter. Ron was a loving father to his three sons Samuel, Michael, and Nathaniel, and was immensely proud of all of their accomplishments. Ron was also a doting grandfather to his cherished granddaughters Vivian and Naomi. Ron was a member over the years of different area synagogues including Temple Beth El, Temple Beth Tephilah, Temple Israel, and the Nassau Synagogue. Ron was also active in Troy High School and Albany College of Pharmacy alumni activities. He was an avid gardener who took much pride in the vegetables he grew each summer.

Ron is survived by his wife, Marilyn Levine Pollack of Troy, NY and his children Samuel Pollack of New York, NY, Michael Pollack of Troy, NY, and Nathaniel Pollack (Stephanie Goodman) of Pacifica, CA. Ron is also survived by his granddaughters Vivian Pollack and Naomi Pollack of Pacifica, CA. Ron is survived by his three siblings – Mindy Norman of Monroeville, PA, Claire Falik of Port St. Lucie, FL, and Mark Pollack of Marlboro, NJ. Ron is also survived by a large extended family of cousins with whom he shared close relationships. Ron was predeceased by his parents, the late Nathan Pollack and Edith Victor Pollack. The Pollack family also wishes to thank Ron’s caregivers over the past several months.

Funeral services will be held graveside on Thursday January 4, 2024 at 2:00 pm at the Hebrew Farmer’s Cemetery at 1626 Western Avenue, Albany NY.
