    ERVING - Carroll W. Mankowsky, 94, of River Road, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday morning (9-8-12) during a brief stay at Poet Seat Healthcare Center, Greenfield.
    He was born in Hadley, Ma. on April 5, 1918 the son of John A. and Valerie (Sobocienska) Mankowsky, the second oldest of ten children. He graduated from Northfield High School in 1936. Carroll served in the U.S. Coast Guard during WWII, making 24 crossings of the Atlantic aboard warships escorting convoys, and attaining the rank of Carpenter's mate first class.
    He was a communicant of St. John's Church in Millers Falls, Ma.

    He had a strong work ethic, working up to 50-hour shifts for over 32 years as a micrometer assembler at L.S. Starrett Co. in Athol, Ma. as well as working part time for such businesses as Prondecki's Store and Carroll's Market in Millers Falls, Ma. He was also a Special Police Officer in Erving for several years.
    Carroll still found time for outdoor activities, particularly boating, fishing, gardening, hiking, skiing and whatever sports in which his two sons were involved. But his real love was spending time with his four grandchildren, and recently, his infant grandson. Each of the grandchildren loved him right back. In his retirement years he spent many summers at the family cottage on Moore's pond in Warwick, and many winters at their condominium on the Sands of Lido Key, Sarasota, FL.

    Carroll is survived by his devoted wife of 66 years, the former Madeline Whitney of Northfield, his two sons, David and his wife Hong (Son) of Montague, and Paul and his wife Kathy (Miller) of Naples, FL, his former daughter-in-law Charlene Golanka of Greenfield, his four granddaughters: Autumn Blanchard and her husband Bill of Tallahassee, FL, Aspen Mankowsky of Denver, CO, Erica Mankowsky, of Vail, CO, and Lisa Mankowsky of Washington, DC, and his grandson Troy Mankowsky of Montague. He is also survived by two sisters, Janet Robinson and her husband Ken of Burlington, NC, and Helen Wollender of Greenfield, and two brothers, Ralph Mankowsky and his wife Joyce of Turners Falls, and John Mankowsky and his wife Jane of W. Springfield, as well as dozens of nieces and nephews.
    Carroll will be fondly remembered by many as a good, kind and gentle man of great inner strength.

    Funeral services will be Wednesday (9-12-12) from the Kidder Funeral Home, 1 Parker Ave., Northfield, Ma. followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial in St. Patrick's Church, Main St. at 11 a.m.

    Burial will follow in Farms Cemetery, Northfield.
    Calling hours will be Wednesday morning from 10 a.m. until the time to leave for church at the funeral home.

    Donations in his memory may be made to Hospice of Franklin County, 329 Conway St., Suite 2, Greenfield MA 01301
