Pohlmann, Neil A. (Featured) - Bowling Green  
BOWLING GREEN - Neil A. Pohlmann, a retired professor in the education administration and supervision department at Bowling Green State University who was an educator for more than 40 years, died Sunday in Claire Bridge. He was 85. He suffered from Parkinson's disease and other health issues, said his daughter, Mary Kay Culver. Mr. Pohlmann, who had a doctorate in education and other advanced degrees, began teaching at BGSU in 1964 after serving as a superintendent at a school district near Defiance. He was chairman of the education administration and supervision department from 1973 to 1976 and advised school districts in northwest Ohio and throughout the state in superintendent searches. "He helped produce a lot of superintendents," his daughter said. He was born June 24, 1929, in Crystal Lake, Ill., to Alice Rose and Arthur Carl Pohlmann. The family moved to Defiance, where his father owned a meat market and later farmed. Mr. Pohlmann was an athlete at Defiance High School. He played football and basketball and ran track. After graduating in 1948, he went to BGSU, where he was quarterback of the Falcon football team and played basketball. He earned a bachelor's degree from the college in 1952. A member of the ROTC, he went into the Army as a second lieutenant and was trained to pilot the Cessna Bird Dog, which was used as a liaison and observation aircraft. Mrs. Culver said her father flew the all-metal fixed-wing aircraft during the Korean War into enemy territory for reconnaissance missions and he was awarded the Bronze Star for his military accomplishments. Before entering the Army, he married the former Mary Weisgerber on June 12, 1952, in Defiance. They had met in high school. After his discharge in 1954, he took a position at Mayfield Schools near Cleveland. He taught mathematics and science and coached basketball and football at a middle school. Mr. Pohlmann, who earned his master's degree from BGSU while teaching, became superintendent in 1961 of what was then Northeastern Local Schools. It later became Tinora Schools. He was a teaching fellow at BGSU during the 1962-1963 academic year. In 1964, Mr. Pohlmann received a Mott Foundation fellowship in the Inter-University Clinical Preparation Program for Education Leadership at Flint, Mich. He and his family lived in Flint for one year while he worked toward an advanced degree from Wayne State University and learned firsthand about the operation of Flint's community schools. Surviving are his wife, Mary; daughters, Sandra Carpenter, Lynn Schmidt, Mary Kay Culver, Pamela Herrera, Ann Pohlmann, Jayne Murnen, Lisa Brown, and Nicole Holt; sister, Jennie Snyder; brother, Ted Pohlmann; 18 grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Visitation will be from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Deck-Hanneman Funeral Home, where a Sigma Chi White Rose memorial service will begin at 7:30 p.m. followed by Scripture services. Prayers will begin at 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the funeral home, followed by the celebration of the funeral Mass at 11 a.m. in St. Aloysius Catholic Church. The family suggests tributes to the church, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, or Bowling Green State University Foundation - College of Education and Human Development.
