Harold Armand Pochik

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Harold Armand (Pooch) Pochik, beloved husband of 36 years to Cheryl Ann (McIntosh) Pochik, on July 4, 2024 after a lengthy battle with several illnesses.  He was surrounded by his family at the time of death.

Harold was born on December 9, 1947 to Helen (Studer) and Harold Gus Pochik both of whom pre-deceased him.  He is survived by his beloved son, Harold Andrew (Andy) Pochik and his loving sisters, Helen Mitchell (Jim); Cathi Macko (Ken) and Mary Milligan.  His loving sister, Anna Galvin pre-deceased him, as did his sister-in-law, Karen Smith and brother-in-law, Robert E. McIntosh, Jr.  He is also survived by his Father-in-Law, Robert E. McIntosh, Sr., sister-in-law, Betty Menke (Edward) and brother-in-law William McIntosh (JoAnne).  He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, friends and former Navy buddies.

Harold proudly served in the U.S. Navy for 22 years, primarily as an Acoustic Systems Operator and Instructor.  He signed up for his Naval career while still in High School at the age of 17 during the Vietnam War Era.  He enjoyed "traveling the world" for the Navy, as he phrased it.  He retired from the Navy as a Chief Petty Officer in January of 1987, moved to PA, married Cheryl in 1988 and settled in Newtown, PA.

He then worked for a Naval Contractor while attending Delaware Valley University, where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in Computer Information Systems.  For his third Career, he attended Bucks County Community College and became a Registered Nurse.  Unfortunately, illness forced him to retire from full-time work, however, he continued working part-time as a CPR Instructor.  He also did Volunteer work for the USO, Bucks County Medical Reserve Corp (BCMRC), St. Mary's Hospital and the Bucks County Board of Elections.

Harold most enjoyed visiting and camping with his family in Michigan, attending, KC Chiefs games, fishing and golfing with his son, Andy.  To say he was an avid reader is an understatement.  He loved Classical music, but also enjoyed Country.

Harold was extremely proud of serving his country in the Navy and would most like to be remembered as a dedicated American Patriot.   He should also be remembered as a loyal friend and someone who wanted everyone to feel welcome, comfortable and happy.   Simply stated, he was a good man.

Harold will be intered in a private ceremony at Washington Crossing National Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Wounded Warriors, Mission 22 or a Military Charitable Organization of your choosing.  Harold would be most thankful.
