Capt. John Daniel Poling, Sr.

John Daniel Poling of Morristown, age 81, died on Friday, July 20, 2018 at home.

Dan was born in the Bronx, NY on February 14, 1937 to William J and Constance (Reynolds) Poling. He was educated at parochial schools and graduated from Cardinal Hayes High school before earning his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Manhattan College in 1958.

He joined the US Navy and attended OCS in Newport RI and was commissioned as an Ensign. He served on several ships out of Norfolk VA including the USS Boxer and USS Valley Forge. Shortly after sea duty during the Cuban Missile Crisis, he transitioned to the reserves and continued to serve our country until he retired with the rank of Captain in 1983. After his active duty service, Dan worked for Western Electric and AT&T in New York while earning his Master’s degree in Economics from NYU. In 1987, he made a career change and went to work for the Archdiocese of New York as the Director of Finances for Parishes and Schools. After residing in Cortlandt Manor NY for many years, he retired to Morristown in 2003.

In addition, are his grandchildren John D III, Brian, Sam, Philip, Ashley, Casey, Lauren, Ryan and Colleen. Above all he treasured his family and found great joy in spending time with them. His kindness and spirit of generosity will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know him.
