May 12, 1927 — February 1, 2019
QUEENSBURY — Gregory F. Pulaski passed away on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 at Glens Falls Hospital.
Born on May 12, 1927 in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Gregory was the son of William Pulaski and Helen Tweega Pulaski.
Greg was a decorated officer in the U.S. Army and a veteran of WWII having served in the Pacific Theater. He received a BS in Chemistry from Tufts University in Boston in 1951.
Greg’s first position was with American Cyanamid in Stamford, Connecticut. He then took a role as a research and development chemist at Norton Company in Troy where he worked across various product divisions from 1953 to 1967. In the late 1960s, Greg began working at Decora Company in Fort Edward as a senior product development chemist and held several patents. During the latter part of his career, Greg held a key research role at Norton Company in Granville as technical manager of coatings and was involved in the development of many products. Greg retired in 1994.
Greg enjoyed skiing, golfing, skating, gardening, woodworking, cooking and music. He lived his life with an unyielding work ethic combined with curiosity and a desire for knowledge. With a resiliency through the difficult times of the Depression and WWII, Greg took on unspoken responsibilities as the oldest of three siblings in supporting their education and development. He was a devoted, loving husband and as a father and grandfather, Greg lived unselfishly for his family.
Greg was predeceased by a brother, Richard Pulaski and a sister, Roma Danisewicz.
Greg is survived by his wife of 59 years, Joyce Pulaski, as well as his son, Aaron Pulaski of Albany, his daughter, Colleen Pulaski VonDohlen of Winston-Salem, North Carolina; and three beautiful granddaughters, Renee, Rachel and Brooke VonDohlen.
Our family would like to thank all the nurses, doctors, aides and clergy at Glens Falls Hospital and Fort Hudson Rehabilitation Center who made Greg’s life comfortable in his final days.
In honoring Greg’s request, there will be no calling hours. A celebration of Greg’s life for family and friends will be held at a time to be announced in the spring.
Those who wish to send a remembrance in Greg’s name may do so to the American Heart Association, 4 Atrium Drive No. 100, Albany, NY 12205.
