In Loving Memory

Pohlman, Daniel

Dear husband of Peggy Pohlman for 23 years; dearest father of Tracy (Don) O’Connor and Andy Pohlman, (Sara), loving grandfather of Molly and Collin O’Connor, step-father of Jessica and Preston Stout, step-grandfather of Tyler, Alyssa and Addy Stout, step-great grandfather of Magnolia Stout, loving son of the late James Pohlman and the late Adele (nee Mercier) Pohlman, dear brother of Kathy (Bob) Adrian, Judy Pohlman, and Mary Marchetto, our dear brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend.

Dan worked for the United States Postal Service for over 40 years; first at the Main Post Office downtown and then as a postal clerk at the Kirkwood Post Office. He loved birds, the great outdoors and keeping his yard beautiful with landscaping and planting flowers. Golfing, running, and metal detecting were a few of his hobbies. Some of his favorite pastimes included bowling, attending trivia nights (he was knowledgeable about many trivia topics) and going to the casino.

He was a St. Louis Cardinals Baseball fan and had coached his son’s baseball team. In the past several years, he loved walking his dogs with his friends. Dan was a long-time parishioner at Immaculate Conception Parish in Arnold where he had been a lector.

  3. I couldn’t ask for a greater brother. We had a lot of fun growing up…..playing games and sports in the yard and around with all the neighborhood kids. Used to go up to the undeveloped area where there was a stream and lots of cattails. Thought we were pretty adventurous. Peered through the fence at the cows on the farm where Tiemeyer Park is now. We thought the broken-down wagon there was pretty cool. We loved going to the country where our dad was born in Illinois. Riding the Golden Eagle Ferry was always fun. Even waiting on the shore for it to come offered time to skim stones in the river and pretend we’d see a crocodile when a log floated by. At the farm we’d go in the barn and farm buildings and check it all out. I remember going to the old, abandoned farmhouse down from Annie and Joe’s. We said it was haunted.

    We shared a lot of common loves – the great outdoors, hiking and American history. When we got older, we talked about the St. Louis Cardinals, the Rams and all the thrilling victories, and the not-so-good games. We always liked music. I can remember us sitting round the little record player with our sisters listening to the 45s. When we got older, Gordon Lightfoot and the Moody
    Blues were two of our favorites. Going to Gordon and Moodies’ concerts was special. Liked going fishing with dad, too, at Iffrigs, and of course, will always remember you snagging your arm with a yellow feathery fishing hook. At the ER they joked about how you were probably the biggest one you ever caught.

    You were always so easy to talk to, and we could talk about pretty much anything.

    I know you were a valued employee at the Kirkwood Post Office. You were a good and conscientious worker, and you gave them your best. Just like you did for your family, your kids, grand-kids and step kids and their children and great granddaughter.

    You certainly loved your dogs and walks with friends. Little Milo is especially going to miss you.

    I love you, Dan. I’m so happy you were my brother.

    Your sister,

  4. My big brother Dan.. still can’t believe you are gone.
    I have different memories than Kathy but all good just the same .
    We used to play football on our knees and the end zones were the doorways surrounding our small kitchen, drove Mom crazy!!
    You often left me a Suzy Q cream cake in my dance bag to find as a treat,and we loved watching the 3Stooges together.
    I remember listening to Jesus Christ Superstar in its entirety always around Easter.
    You were cool about letting me hang out at your apartment and never let me feel like a nuisance!
    Thanks for that Danny Boy!
    Love you !
    Rest In Peace

  5. We walked frequently with Dan & his dog in Arnold Park . What a great guy in every way . We will miss you Dan. So sorry for your loss Peggy. He put up a good fight.

  6. Walking my dog with Dan, Peggy, their dogs and the other dog walkers was always the best part of the day. Dan was always so kind to people and their dogs, helping to make the morning walks fun for all. My wish for his family and friends is peace and comfort in all of their memories of Dan. Deepest condolences.

  7. I was blessed to be Dan’s Lector partner at Immaculate Conception Parish for many years and to get to know him through this association. He was a very gentle and kind man who always asked about others and hardly ever talked about himself. God put him in my life and I was so fortunate to know him and have him as my reading partner and fellow parishioner.
    Our prayers and love to his family and friends.
    Cindy & Steven Ott

  8. We loved seeing Dan and Peggy walking Tuck, Riley, and then Milo. Dan was one of the few truly good people. We will miss him. We hope to see Peggy walking Milo.

  9. I’ll never forget the family reunion in Florida. That’s also the time we started playing Words With Friends and we never missed a day for 10 years. You will be missed! Much love to my Aunt Peggy and all family and friends.
