He married his sweetheart JoAn Schoss Poll on April 7, 1948. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan Temple. They cherished 66 years together and were blessed with two daughters and two sons.

He served his country honorably in the US Navy during World War II and the Korean War. He worked at Wheelwright Lumber Co. for many years then retired from Hill AFB in 1974 with 24 years of service.
Edward loved the outdoors, spending much of his time in the Uinta’s at his cabin. He loved God’s beautiful creation of the mountains where he enjoyed fishing, hunting and snowmobiling with family and friends. Some of his favorite times were talking about the good ole’ days, working on the farm with his dad, hauling peas to the vinery, and sitting around a campfire singing his favorite songs.
He loved all sports, especially the Utah JAZZ, BYU, and the Colorado Rockies, horse races, dancing with his sweetheart, spending time with his children and grandchildren, watching western movies, listening to country music, and enjoying his favorite foods, shrimp and vanilla shakes!
He is survived by his Eternal Companion, JoAn, his daughters, Gail (Dale) Ukena, Gwen Boseman, and son Flint Edward Poll; 17 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren; one brother Max Poll, three sisters, Dorothy Markham, Joyce Weaver and JoAnn Stone.

Edward will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He leaves a legacy of cherished memories.
The family would like to express their sincere thanks to PineView Rehab, IHC Homecare/Hospice, and all who provided loving care the last few months.
