Larry, Jean and their children, Sarah--John--Ann and Lisa, have never left the area of my heart which will always be held only for them. During my formative teen years when I cared for their children, Larry became a role model who I believe caused me to choose and marry the man I did. Joel and I have now been married for 42 years. My memories of Larry have been and will always be blessings from God. This isn't goodbye Larry. This is, "See you in while Larry." To the Poolers: I share in your "earthly" sorrow for the passing on to being "born to (his) eternal life" of this wonderful husband, father, my mentor and friend. Because of faith in our Lord, I know we will one day rejoice together for eternity. What a glorious day that will be! I love you all!

Our deepest condolences, Jean. We got to know Larry through the FVTC social studies get togethers. He was always fun to talk with. He made us smile. We enjoyed his limericks and stories. May you be comforted by fond memories. Beth and Mike English

My deepest sympathy Jeannie and girls - Mr. Pooler was always such a kind person - a true "gentle" man......he will be missed by so many of those lives that he touched through his years. My fondest memory.......after all - who else would come outside from a busy festive cocktail party at her parents house and sit with a 10 year old comforting a mourning dove that flew in to our living room window and hurt itself......he sat there and talked to me like I was an adult about that poor bird until it passed....I named it Larry. Never forgot that kind sensitivity through all of my years.....howls and hugs to your family.
Vickie and Pack.

My deepest condolences to the family. I was pleased and honored to get to spend time with Yutch on several occasions, and I am proud to have known him.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Larry and with you Jean and your wonderful family. I understand that the visiting hours will be full of happy moments from your anniversary party and Larry's birthday parties. So much love and true kindness in the Pooler family - Life brought me to Appleton in 1994 and faith brought you and Larry and John and the girls and their families to me for some special moments. I am so grateful for the love and support of you both over the years. You both do so much for sooo many.. So appreciative of the evening we spent together recently on my visit to WI. Larry was his usual fun self with that twinkle in his eye as he told us stories and his opinion on various political topics. See you soon Jean. Love you and Larry. LuCille ("Cille") and Greg

Jean...our hearts go out to you. We will miss Larry...wherever we met the Lake, at the Y our at our Christmas season PROMs where Larry became enthralled of, all things, with or black bathroom. Speaking of the Y, it was a very somber place there today. You would be proud of all the wonderful comments reflecting the impact Larry made on his buddies. God Bless you and your family. We are sorry we will be out of town for Larry's "going away party", but we will be there in spirit with you.
