William Pooler, Jr, 81

William Pooler, Jr, 81, of Tuppers Plains, Ohio passed away on October 3, 2022 in his home. 

Bill was born on March 21, 1941 to William and Inez (Zink) Pooler. With the exception of a short time in Canton, Bill spent his entire life living in Meigs County, Ohio, a place where he thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful outdoors and the quiet snowy mornings he often spent in the woods hunting and “just enjoying God’s creation”. 

After leaving home to work on a farm at a young age, Bill later began employment with Kaiser (Ravenswood) Aluminum where he would eventually retire. During his employment at the plant, he also owned and operated his logging business, Pooler Tree Farming as well as other business adventures. He spent many happy hours behind the wheel of his semi trucks and always took great pleasure in seeing the fruits of his hard labor. 

Bill was proceeded in death by both parents as well as two brothers, Gary and Donnie; he is survived by his wife, Debbie (Balch) Pooler; his two sisters Marilyn Dolphin and Lena Belle Pullins; his four adult children Rebecca Adcock, Terry Pooler (Teresa Shamp), Debbie Putman (Tim Hawthorne) and Billee (Jeremy) Hill; as well as five grandchildren Elaine, Amber, Jessica, Reagan and Jonah, four great grandchildren, many adored step children and step grandchildren as well as many close lifelong friends. 

A Celebration of Life in honor of Bill will be held Sunday, October 16 from 2-4 p.m. at the Maplelawn, 110 Mulberry Ave., Pomeroy, OH, for all family and friends who wish to attend.
