A dear son, father, and brother, Erick Polke, 61, of Pawtucket, passed away unexpectedly at his home, on June 5th, 2022. Born in North Providence, he was a cherished son of Eileen Corbi-Moran of Pawtucket and the late Frank Polke. Erick was predeceased by one brother, Frank Polke.
He is survived by his two devoted daughters, Erica Polke and her partner, Jason Dodd, of North Providence, and Jessica Fleetwood and her spouse Carl, of Danielson CT. He also leaves behind his brother, Bryan Polke, of Pawtucket and five loving grandchildren Jadern and Isaiah Frias, Dominic, and Kai, all of Danielson CT., and Freyja Safford, of North Providence. He is also survived by his trusty companion, a Terrier named Jake, along with many friends and relatives by whom he will be sorely missed.
Erick was a "man's man": an Army veteran, construction worker and heavy equipment operator, motorcycle enthusiast, die-hard 'Rolling Stones' fan, avid coffee drinker, and junk food connoisseur with a strong preference for Devil Dogs and Little Debbie packaged donuts! He totally and unconditionally detested technology and was a proud technological neophyte.
Services for Erick will take place Tuesday, June 14th, at 11am in the Rhode Island Veterans' Memorial Cemetery, 301 South County Trail, Exeter
