Randy G. Polley, age 58, passed away peacefully at the home of his sons in Erie on Sunday, March 26, 2017, following a year-long battle with brain cancer. Randy faced this battle with strenghth and dignity, surrounded by the love and support of his family and many, many friends, remaining positive throughout.

He will be remembered for always having a bright smile on his face.  Cancer took his life, but never broke his spirit.

He was born September 11, 1958, at Spencer Hospital in Meadville, a son of Harold and Jean (Snodgrass) Polley.  He served in the United States Army and was employed for 30 years as a Fleet Card Sales Manager at United Refinery Company, Warren, PA. He also served as a past officer and firefighter/first responder for Linesville Volunteer Fire Department.

Randy's greatest joy in life was spending time with his sons. He enthusiastically supported them in their every endeavor, volunteering as a Little League baseball coach, Little Gridders football coach, and assistant Cub Scout Leader. He shared his love of hunting with his sons and their friends, looking forward every year to getting out with them in search of that big buck.  He also taught them to fish, opening trout season many years by camping out with the boys along the river. He felt blessed beyond measure to have the chance over the past year to rebuild a relationship with is eldest son.  Over the past ten years, he became a motorcycle enthusiast, spending many happy hours riding his Harley.  He traveled to Laconia and Sturgis and enjoyed many poker runs with his fellow riders.  He was a member of ABATE and the Patriot Riders.  He was also an avid Pittsburgh Steeler's and Penguins fan.

Randy is survived by three sons, Matthew Polley and his companion Maia MacKellar of Erie, Jonathan Polley of Erie, and Jason Adams and his wife Rebecca Johnson of Columbia, PA; two brothers, Richard Polley and his wife Maryan of Jamestown, Donald Polley of Greenville; two sisters, Darlene Marimpietri and her husband Jerry of Johnson, OH, Donna Fiscus and her husband Robert of Hermitage, PA. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws, and countless loving friends. 

He was  preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Charles G. Polley, James E. Polley, Earl S. Polley; and a sister, Laurel Louise Bell.

In lieu of flowers, it was Randy's request that memorial contributions be made to Make A Wish Foundation, 4742 North 24th Street, Suite 400, Pheonix, AZ 85016 or Shriner's Children's Hospital, 1645 W. 8th Street Erie, PA 16505.

    What a glowing tribute to your father and brother! I taught Randy at Jamestown High School and have good memories of his cheerful disposition. I remember when several students and I once went to a play at Grove City High School (a first for him) and, despite his getting into trouble for staying out late — the play went late, he loved losing himself in a theater production. When he decided to leave school, we had a private conversation about his decision and his future. I was sorry that he was leaving and yet confident that Randy would shape a successful life for himself. Few students stand out to me as clearly as Randy did. I am sorry to hear about his battle with cancer. My heart goes out to you in your sorrow.

    Matt and Jonathan, Wanted to let you both know how much I appreciate you sharing your dad with Adam. Adam didn’t really have a father figure in his life and Randy took him under his wings and treated him like a son. So glad you all have great hunting stories to share with each other. He will be looking down on you all during hunting season. God Bless you boys for taking such good care of him at your young age. He will be watching you and be in your hearts forever. RIP

    I never had the opportunity to meet Randy, I only spoke to him on the telephone when he would call with the price changes. I offer my condolences to all of his family and friends.
