Joseph Podgorsky

November 17, 1949 ~ September 3, 2019 (age 69)


Joseph J. Podgorsky entered into rest on Tuesday, September 3rd 2019. He grew up in
Waldwick, NJ next door to a little girl who was determined to marry him and who eventually
became his wife. Joe was an accomplished man. He worked for many years at both Avon and
Unilever, and has his name on multiple patents. However, Joe’s greatest accomplishment was
his family. There wasn’t a favor too big or a drive too long for Joe. He gave fully and freely and
loved his family unconditionally. Joe loved to boat, fish and hike and bought a cabin by a lake
so he could share these adventures with his family. The door was always open and the fridge
was always full. He leaves behind many memories not only of bonfires, but of wise words and
tender one on one moments. Joe is survived by his loving wife Nadine Podgorsky, son and
daughter in law Justin and Charlie Marie Podgorsky, grandsons Christian Kurtz, Jonah and
Simon Podgorsky, sisters Ginger McGinn and Jackie Herrington and numerous nieces and
nephews. A memorial service will be held on Sat. September 7th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at
Feeney Funeral Home, 232 Franklin Ave. Ridgewood, NJ. In lieu of flowers, donations can be
made to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center 1275 York Ave. NY, NY 10065
