CHADRICK “CHAD” A. POLAND
Chad A. Poland, age 46, of Uhrichsville, passed away on June 7, 2019, at the Truman Hospice House in New Philadelphia, following a lengthy illness.
In 1991, Chad graduated from Claymont High School. He was employed at Valley Mining for 20 years and Stocker Concrete for 6 years. Chad attended the Rush Church of the Nazarene in Uhrichsville (when his wife made him). He was the Assistant Chief of the Rush Township Fire Department (his mission was to be the first firefighter to the fire station at all times). Chad enjoyed fishing, hunting (claimed to be old dead eye), the Cleveland Browns; he remained a diehard fan despite their losing ways, euchre night at the fire station (the cheater counted the cards) and spending time with his family (oh those lasagna dinners-his secret recipe with Brooklyn).
On September 13, 2006, at the Rush Church of the Nazarene, Chad married Kendra (Allen) Poland, who survives of the home. Also surviving are his parents, Rick and Renee (Arnold) Poland; his children Kimberly M. Simmerman, Joseph K. Simmerman (companion Allyssa Grove) and Brooklyn R. Poland; siblings Travis (Tiffany) Poland and Lori McGlothlin; grandchildren Berklee Danielle and Kallen James Chad; mother-in-law Jo Ann Allen and maternal grandmother Helen Grosenbacher.
