Austin Robert Pohl, 35, of Westphalia, Michigan, went to be with our Lord on March 18, 2021. Austin, surrounded by his family, passed away from complications due to Covid-19.
Austin was an amazing force in this world who embodied the idea that although life’s circumstances can at time bring us to our knees, what matters is that we keep looking up and moving forward. Austin gave us all a wonderful example as one who persevered through challenges with a smile on his face. He was an amazing teacher, son, brother and friend.
Austin enjoyed riding in the van throughout the countryside, listening to music, watching videos when at home and he had a real love for food.
Austin touched the lives of many individuals who entered our home to help Austin in his daily living and many of these individuals touched our lives, as well. We will be eternally grateful for the help of such caring, loving individuals.
Austin was preceded in death by his brother, Garrett, Grandparents, Mark and Gertrude (Witgen) Simmon, Grandmother Mary Ellen (Platte) Pohl, Aunt Patty (Simmon) Robbins and Aunt Sheila Pohl. He is survived by his parents, Luke and Janet (Simmon) Pohl, brother, Gavin and his wife Meghan, brother, Landon and his wife Nicole and nieces, Azlynn and Quinn, Grandfather, Elvan Pohl and many aunts, uncles and cousins on both the Pohl and Simmon sides of the family.
