Nicholas William “Bumper” Poznanski, 88, of Little Egg Harbor NJ, died on Monday, December 30, 2019.
Son of the late Nicholas and Helen Poznanski, Nick was born in Newark, NJ and lived in Carteret, NJ before moving to Little Egg Harbor 14 years ago. He is survived by his beloved wife, Mona Marie (Bartley) Poznanski; his four children, Nicholas Poznanski, Wendy Patten and her husband Thomas, Brian Poznanski and his wife Kristine, Kevin Poznanski and his girlfriend Gina Minichino.

Nick attended East Side High School of Newark, NJ and graduated from Engine City Technology Institute in Union, NJ. He served in the United States Navy during the Korean War on the USS Grainger Naval Vessel, where he was known for his vast mechanical knowledge in the engine room. He was Union President and Foreman at Continental Electric in Newark, NJ, which produced some of the country’s largest electrical motors.
Nick loved fishing, the NY Giants, his summer garden, Atlantic City, westerns, war movies and coaching baseball. He had a passion for building, mechanics and any job requiring the use of his hands. Having built a second story addition to his home and repairing countless cars, no job was ever too big or too small.
