T, Gary Pohlman Obituary, Death – had lived in Saint Peters, Missouri all their life and had reached the age of 72 when they died away on Friday, August 18, 2023. The late Louis F. and Dolores A. Pohlman held their son Pohlman in high regard throughout their lives. Karen Gene Pohlman cherished having him as her husband all her life. Beloved father of Curtis (Melissa) Pohlman, Diane (Grant) Jessen, and the late Gary Pohlman (Christy Clover); loving grandpa of 12 grandchildren; treasured brother of Cookie Newsom, Larry Pohlman, Sandy Ueholf, and Penny Pohlman. Gary Pohlman passed away in 2014.
Gary was a committed Christian who was also quite active in his church and other religious activities. In addition to the fact that he took pleasure in leading bible study groups, he was also a participant in a Christian motorcycling club. In addition, Gary was a member of the Carpenter’s Union #1596, a membership that has been in Gary’s family for three generations, beginning with Gary’s father and carrying on through Gary and his son, Curtis. This membership was passed down to Gary from his father.
There is a sense in which one might refer to Gary as a “hobby king.” He was interested in a wide range of topics, but when he found anything that particularly caught his interest, he devoted all of his focus to that one topic. He was a gentle and caring man who never failed to guide his family with laughter and faith in all of their endeavors. He presided over the household as the patriarch. He was a bright spot in the midst of the storm, had the capacity to make anybody laugh, and shared a special bond with every member of his family. He was a beam of sunshine. Because God showered them with his blessings, he and Karen were able to enjoy a fruitful marriage that lasted more than 52 years. Gary was held in high esteem and loved by everybody, and his absence will be keenly felt by all those who knew him.
A Celebration of Life will be held on the Saturday, August 26, 2023 at First Baptist Church Wentzville, which is located at 653 Luetkenhaus Blvd, Wentzville, Missouri 63385. The date and time of the event have not yet been determined. The visitation will start at ten in the morning, and the service will start at eleven in the morning.
