Martin "Papa" Lawrence Polomsky, age 74, of Middlefield, passed away peacefully Thursday, September 13, 2018 at home surrounded by family. He was born in Cleveland and had been a resident of Middlefield for more than 30 years. Mr Polomsky’s first position was at Campus Sportswear, where he met his wife of 53 years, Sandra Marie Rucinski. He proposed to her on Holy Saturday at St. Wenceslas Catholic Church. Martin retired from Republic Finance and LK McGuinness where he worked in Public Relations. He had excellent penmanship. He was a devoted Catholic and active member of St. Helen Catholic Church in Newbury. In Martin's early healthy years, he enjoyed riding to Parkman to the Polomsky Farm and helping doing chores. He was an avid fan of muscle cars, trains, doing yard work and playing pool. He also enjoyed finding a good bargain, and organizing while listening to the music of Rick Nelson. He also loved traveling, fishing, hunting, camping and spending time with loved one's. In Martin's bedbound years, he enjoyed bird watching, reading, listening to Moody Radio and especially the Ministry of Joni Earekson Tada, classic movies and television shows. He loved a good home cooked meal and he can’t wait to have his mom’s stuffed cabbage in heaven. He especially loved being with his family and friends, who will miss him dearly.
