Robert "Bob" Pohle Obituary
Robert "Bob" Pohle

AGE: 70 • Manasquan

Bob Pohle, a lifelong Manasquan resident passed away suddenly at the youthful and vibrant age of 70 from a heart attack. While these words are certainly nothing more than the bare truth and may report the harsh facts; they do little to capture the essence of the man who meant so much to so many of us and who touched us profoundly each in his or her own way.

Bob graduated from Manasquan High School in 1965 and went on to earn his degree in electronic engineering from Valparaiso Technical Institute.

Upon graduation, Bob immediately went to work for General Electric on its classified military ground-based fixed-beam radar system, which was designed to keep the Soviets on their toes and behaving.

As CEO of P.K. Electric for 35 years he specialized in custom homes to the sheer delight of his customers and envy of his competitors who admired him nonetheless.

Bob had the ability to make a friend out of everyone he met. He loved the art of conversation and could entertainingly engage anyone on myriad topics. He always had an interesting story to tell, and loved hearing other people's stories. He lived his life as if every moment counted, because to him it did!

One of his great passions in life was trains and model railroading. He loved the Pennsylvania Railroad-but his greatest love (other than his lovely wife of course) was steam locomotives.

Undoubtedly a man of many accomplishments, many achievements and many passions and interests, his greatest of course was as husband and closest friend to his bride, Heidi. He adored his wife and she him in return. A role model to other men, married or who might hope to be in a relationship- of how strength can be easily combined with compassion and tenderness and how each enhances the other.

He was predeceased by his parents Edward and Carolyn (Schiller) Pohle. Bob is survived by his wife Heidi (Olsen); cousin Arthur Lloyd and his wife Pauline (Lambert); his second cousins Diana Lloyd, her husband Jordan Hershman and their children Elana and Jacob; Cynthia (Lloyd) Brogan, her husband Chris and their children Hannah and Joseph; Vanessa (Lloyd) Beauchaine, her husband John and their children Jake and Nicole; his mother-in-law DeLoris Nesteby, his sister and brother-in-law Taryn and Dennis McCarthy, and his nieces and nephews Patrick, Kirsten and John McCarthy.

Friends and family are invited to a celebration of Bob's life on Sunday, June 4th at 4 p.m. at the church hall of the Embury United Methodist Church located at 49 Church Street, Little Silver, NJ 07739. Bob hated suits and ties, so please come dressed comfortably in bright, cheerful colors!
