David A. Pomorski, Bradenton Beach, God's mercy was finally granted on Sept 7, when he took our beloved brother into his arms and carried him away to the peace he deserved. David Allen Pomorski was a warrior. His strength and optimism in the face of his cancer left an indelible mark on everyone who crossed his path. A master shipwright, David moved from Erie, Pa to Bradenton Beach, in 1978. He learned the trade under the influence of his father, the late Martin Pomorski. As dock master of the Erie Yacht Club, he instilled the love of boats in his talented, impressionable son. David went on to create a reputation of a fine craftsman, inventor , artist and damn good golfer. His passion was wooden boats, and he won many awards for his work through the years. He loved to sail, but his greatest joy was in a little skiff, roaming the shallows of the bay south of Cortez. Though he lived here over 30 years, he was a private man and never married. His beautiful blue eyes and kind heart attracted love, camaraderie and friendship from all walks of life. " It is, what it is" was his mantra. He will live on forever in our hearts A celebration of his life will be held on Sat, Sept 14 at high noon at his last residence, 116 11th St So. Bradenton Bch. Carpooling recommended. Donations in lieu of flowers to the boat works program at FISH, Florida Institute of Saltwater Heritage, PO Box 606, Cortez, Fl 34215.
