Obituary for Reginald S Pokallus

Reginald S. Pokallus entered into eternal life on Friday, February 15th, 2019, after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease at his home in Hillsborough.

Reg was born in Manhattan, NY to Helen and Herman Pokallus and lived in New York until his family moved to Matawan, NJ in 1952. He graduated from Cardinal Hayes Catholic High School in 1951 and then attended Rutgers University earning his Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees in Microbiology. He met his beloved wife, Jan, in 1956 and they were married in 1957 before the Army stationed him in Germany. Reg and Jan had many wonderful memories travelling through Europe during the two years he was stationed there.

Reg was employed by Johnson and Johnson for more than 30 years before retiring in 1999.

Reg loved his faith and was a devout Catholic. He enjoyed watching "old movies" and doing crossword puzzles with his wife prior to her passing. On any given day, Reg could be found in his shop woodworking and painting. He also enjoyed taking great care of his yard and garden, and for many years enjoyed making wine with the fruits that he had grown.

Reg was predeceased by his beloved wife in 2009 and missed her every day since. He is also predeceased by his parents, Herman and Helen as well as his brother Richard.

He is survived by his beloved caregiver, Bobby, his son Jeffrey, his daughters Kristin, Karen and her husband Pascal, Donna and her husband John, Debora, a sister Diane, as well as his granddaughters Courtney, Caleigh, Emma, Emilie, Amelia and Adeline and his grandsons Joseph, Joshua and Benjamin.

Visitation is private. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Mary Mother of God Church, 157 S. Triangle Rd., Hillsborough , NJ 08844, at 11am on February 20th, 2019.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Reg's name to Save Unborn Life, 5235 Wolf Rd, Erie, PA 16505.
