Ronald James Poharski, 54, entered into rest on November 2, 2023, surrounded by his family.

A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends on Saturday, December 9, 2023, at 1 p.m. in North Augusta, SC.

Ron was born April 22, 1969, in Nanticoke to Martin and Christine (Sokolnicki) Poharski of Ninety-Six, South Carolina. Ron and his family resided in Slocum Township, Pennsylvania before relocating to sunnier weather in North Augusta, South Carolina.

He was a graduate of Crestwood High School and Luzerne County Community College, with earned associate degrees in Commercial Art and Business Management. He held various positions in the Warehouse, Distribution, and Transportation Management Industries, including management positions at Fabri-Kal, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, and Henningsen Cold Storage companies.

In addition to his parents, he will be greatly missed by his wife of 32 years, Renee (Heck) Poharski, daughters, Madison (Samual) Montoya of Atlanta, GA; and Lauren (Charles) Gardner of Norfolk, VA; a sister, Susan (Daren) Eroh, with nephews, Amsey Eroh and Ethan Eroh of Brimfield, MA. He also leaves behind his mother-in-law, Rose (late Robert Sr.) Heck of Wilkes Barre; brothers-in-law, Robert (Tina) Heck of Mountaintop; Ronald (Brenda) Heck of Nanticoke; and Richard (Sheila) Heck of Plains; nieces, Samantha (Adam) Bogumil of Rock Hill, SC; Alexandra Heck of Plains; and Melissa Grabinski of Allentown; nephews, Ryan (Michelle) Heck of Mountaintop; and Noah Heck of Van Buren Twp, Michigan.

Ron was a loving and supportive provider for his family. He leaves behind a legacy of loyalty, friendship, and hard work. Ron left his love for art, woodworking, and cars (esp. Cameros) behind but only to be shared equally by his daughters. And for his works of art and woodwork, he left behind to be admired by his wife.
