Michael Robert “Mike” Pollica, 72, drew his last breath at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, at Wolf River Farm in Plainfield, Vermont. Mike was held close and comforted by his wife of 52 years, his two daughters and two eldest grandkids.  Mike was diagnosed with stage-two adenocarcinoma of the esophagus in July 2017.

He graduated from Brattleboro Union High School in 1963, and from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1969 with a BA in Business Administration and a certificate in accounting. He married Judy Allen in September 1966 in Springfield, Vermont. Michael was preceded in death by his father, Robert L. Pollica; cousins George Moore, Paula Chickering, Gail Chickering; and Uncle Albert Gallagher. He is survived by his mother, Barbara Pollica; wife, Judy Pollica; daughters Lara and Sarah Pollica (Ryan Christiansen); siblings Carol Allen and Kathleen Gouger (Jack Gouger); grandkids, niece, nephews and numerous cousins.
