May 11, 1952 - March 13, 2018
Michael Pool, of Terrell, passed away March 13, 2018 surrounded by family. Mike was born May 11, 1952 in Terrell to Joe and Helen (Gann) Pool and he was preceded in death by his mother, Helen and sister, Kathy Pool Nichols. Having been born and raised in Terrell, Mike was a well-known person with his easy going personality and love for music. He graduated from Terrell High School in 1970 and he had worked at Helwig for over 20 years. In high school, Mike was an accomplished athlete in basketball, baseball, and football. His interest in sports never wavered and he loved the time spent with family and friends in friendly softball competitions. Mike’s love for music was renowned and his talent of playing drums enabled him to meet and make many lifelong friends and create endless memories. He was generous to a fault always having time to sit and visit, make others laugh, and would give anyone the shirt off his back. His smile was a welcome sight to so many and he will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Mike’s favorite song was “Dream Weaver” and we know he is sharing these words with each of us in our hearts as we celebrate his life and legacy: Though the dawn may be coming soon There still may be some time Fly me away to the bright side of the moon And meet me on the other side Those left to carry on his memory are his children: Rachel Hammers and husband, Ray, of Wills Point, Adam Pool and wife, Melissa, of Quinlan; father, Joe Pool of Terrell; brother, Gifford Pool of Suwanee, Georgia; grandson, Tucker Joe Pool as well as other extended family and a host of friends. A Celebration of Life for Mike Pool will be held at 4:00pm, Saturday, March 17, 2018 at Max Slayton Funeral Chapel. The family requests that, instead of flowers, everyone consider donations to the SPCA at www.spca.org/waystogive or mailed to SPCA of Texas, ATTN: Development, 2400 Lone Star Drive, Dallas, Texas 75212.
