He is preceded in death by his loving grandson, Clay Chappell and his brother Charles Poehl, Jr. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Betty Poehl, daughter Deb and husband Tim Bigler, son Michael and wife Donys Poehl; sister Cleo Fine, and just the best grandkids a PaPa could have: Chase Chappell, Taylor, McKenzi, and Jarrett Poehl.
