THOMAS (TOMMY)POLJAK, passed away on June 10, 2004 at the age of 63. He was born on May 24, 1941 in McKeesport, PA, lived in Duguesne, PA for 21 years, and became a resident of Redondo Beach, CA for the last 42 years. Tomy is survived by his mother, Rose A. Lesko; his daughter, Tamala Jo Poljak; former spouse/best friend, Joanne Sharkey; brothers, Robert Poljak and Michael Lesko; sister, Anne (Cookie) Sharkey, and other family members. He was proud to be employed by the US Postal Service for 37 years. Tommy was known by countless hundreds of people for his positive attitude and as someone who brought joy to their day. Celebration of Memorial Mass will be on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 at 4:00 P.M. at St. James Catholic Church in Redondo Beach. Tommy's specific wish was that no viewing or burial service be held and that he be cremated prior to the Mass. For those who wish to contribute a memorial gift, and in lieu of flowers, the family suggests a memorial mass or donation that will be used to support organizations with which Tommy was actively involved and loved by so many others also linked to his endeavours.
