1937 - 2017
Francis "Frank" "Pokey" Poches, age 80, of Gahanna, passed away unexpectedly on December 5, 2017. Born April 30, 1937 in Trimble, Ohio, he was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Julia (Barsh) Poches, son Jeffrey Poches and brother Chuck Poches. Frank grew up in Jacksonville, and remained very involved in his childhood home, even after leaving. He was a graduate from Jacksonville Trimble High School, Class of 1955, where he was later inducted into the athletic hall of fame. After graduation, he joined the Air Force and was honorably discharged. He retired from White Westinghouse after 38 years of service. Very community-oriented, Frank served at open shelters, raised funds for his alma mater, was a member of and served as a deacon at Mifflin Presbyterian Church, and enjoyed his second career at Kroger where he could talk to people and share his wonderful sense of humor. His love of nature and traveling led him to see all 50 states, cruising to Alaska, Hawaii and many other destinations. A fan of the Buckeyes sports, he held season tickets to basketball, traveled to away games, and enjoyed numerous Buckeye Cruise for Cancer opportunities. Card club, penny slots, frequent lunches, pranks, jokes and "Let's motor" are ways Frank will be remembered as well.
