Donald Poholsky

February 28, 1932 — March 28, 2024

Beloved father, cherished grandfather, and esteemed veteran Donald Poholsky, age 92, of Bel Air, Maryland, passed away on March 28, 2024, in Bel Air, Maryland. He was born in Elwood City, Pennsylvania, to the late John and Katherine (Troyan) Poholsky.
Donald proudly served his country as a member of the U.S. Army. Following his military service, he embarked on a distinguished career at the National Security Agency, where he dedicated himself tirelessly until his retirement in 1990. During his time at NSA, Donald traveled overseas extensively, and for periods of time moved his family with him to Okinawa and Australia. This provided his children with many interesting childhood memories including an appreciation for life in other cultures.  
Beyond his professional endeavors, Donald found joy in various hobbies and pastimes. An avid golfer and poker player, he relished the time spent with his sons on the green and around the card table. He also had a passion for movies and woodworking, crafting intricate models with precision and care.
One of Donald's greatest passions was his ownership of Stone Willow Farm, a horse farm nestled in Hampstead, Maryland. He poured his heart into the farm, finding solace and fulfillment in caring for the animals and nurturing the land.
Donald is survived by his daughter, Laura Ball; and his sons, John (Susan) Poholsky, Sean (Dawn) Poholsky, Peter (Alice) Poholsky, Paul (Irma) Poholsky; grandchildren, Abby Potts, Alex Poholsky, Paul and Ryan Poholsky, Riley Poholsky, and Dorothy Poholsky; great-grandchildren, Stella and Carli Potts, Madelynn, and Molly Poholsky; and sister, Beverly Bonnell. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Christopher Worden and his sister, Patty Gunnett.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Donald's memory may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
Donald Poholsky will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His legacy of dedication, generosity, and love will continue to inspire and guide those whose lives he touched. May he rest in eternal peace.
