Frank Poebla Obituary

Frank R. Poebla Jr. 53, of Colorado Springs, passed away on February 28, 2023 after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Frank was born September 25, 1969 in Denver, Colorado to Frank Sr. and Esther Arroyo.  He was a graduate of Brighton High School.  Class of 1988.

After high school, Frank joined the US Army where he proudly served his country as a decorated Desert Storm veteran.  He was stationed throughout Europe and Southeast Asia.  Eventually, he transitioned to the Wyoming Air National Guard, where he retired from the CACS in November 2020.  Frank was deeply committed to his country and was a true patriot.  Frank spent more than 18 years working as a defense contractor supporting the Missile Defense Agency.

In his free time, Frank enjoyed running with clubs, hiking and hanging out with friends.  He had a large collection of race bibs, medals and friends.  He liked a cold beer and a pretty waitress as much as he liked running.  He was a kind, generous person, who had a fun sense of humor.

He is survived by his father Frank Sr. (Antoinette), sister Catherine (John) Brady, Uncle Bob Poebla, and nephew Joshua Brady.

Services will be hosted by the American Legion, Post 5, on Friday, April 21st at 3 pm, with food and friends.
