Ronald Pohl


Ronald G. “Randy” Pohl, 68, of Cambridge passed away peacefully on Wednesday evening, January 8, 2014 at his home with his family by his side.
Born April 28, 1945 he was a son of the late Mace Wolf and Louise Burton.
Randy grew up in Cambridge and attended the local schools. He was a member of the 1963 graduating class of Cambridge High School.
Randy and his brother Frank formed Pohl Brothers Scrap Iron and Metal Recyclers in 1971, continuing the business taught to them by their father Mace. Randy operated the business till his retirement in 2007. He also enjoyed doing it part time along with working at Wal-Mart to help him stay busy.
On August 9, 1968 he married the former Gloria Elizabeth Mills. They were blessed with a daughter Teresa, and two grandchildren, Trevor and Karlie.
Randy was always a hard working man. He would journey all over the county picking up salvageable iron and metals. He was known by all with his easy going manner and warm smile. His laugh was contagious and when he started, others would have to follow along.
Family, traveling and all aspects of life Randy enjoyed. He loved vacationing with all the family included. Nothing brought him more joy than being “Pop Pop “to his two grandchildren.
Randy was a member of the Wesleyan Church in Cambridge and had previously served on the board.

Aunt Gloria, my thoughts are with you at this time. I wish I could be there, but know I'm thinking of you and the family. Uncle Randy was a great guy, and I'll always be fond of that last time I saw you both, down at the shore... enjoying crabs and the beautiful Dorchester County sunset.

Gloria, I am so sorry for your loss. It was just a little over a year ago that I lost Rick. I am having tears for you. The only thing I can tell you is, God is still there with you! He will comfort you and strengthen you. His plan is perfect even though we don't always understand. I just read a quote this morning during my devotions and I want to share it with you. "Joy is the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be alright, and the determined choice to praise God in all things." Kay Warren. Love and prayers! Joyce
