Poley, Neil Myron - Cary  
Neil Myron Poley Cary Neil Myron Poley passed away at home on July 4, 2015, at the age of 80. He was a graduate of Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn with a BS, and SUNY New Paltz with an MA, both in chemical engineering. He put that knowledge to work at IBM for 25 years. In his professional pursuits, Mr. Poley earned 13 patents and 6 patent level awards while working for IBM in the areas of display technology and thin film deposition. He also served as the President of Society of Vacuum Coaters, a prestigious post he held for two terms. He won an IBM Outstanding Contribution Award, an honor of very high distinction within the company. He was a member of the American Vacuum Society for 48 years, as well as a member of the Electrochemical Society. Born in Kingston, NY in 1934, Neil was the son of Dr. Philip and Mrs. Ida Poley. He served as a sergeant in the US Army in Korea and Hawaii from 1953-55, and was an active participant in every community in which he lived. Neil is survived by his beloved wife, Ruth Gerard Poley, and his two sons Philip and Samuel, their wives Denise and Stephanie, and his grandson Porter. Loved deeply, he set a great example for his children in the ways of loyalty, conviction, curiosity, humor, and generosity. He was a lover of animals, an exceptional cook, and a warm and welcoming host. He was, in short, the quintessential good guy, and will be missed by all who knew him. In accordance with Neil's wishes, there will be a private service. In lieu of flowers, people are asked to make a donation to the Give 1 For Dad campaign in his honor. Further information about the campaign is available at www.Give1ForDad.com , where visitors will find a link to make donations directly to the Duke Cancer Institute.
