Richard "Rick" John Poquette, age 36, passed away on February 28, 2020 surrounded by his family after a long bout with his demons, and the demons won. Rick was born on October 19, 1983 to Richard "Dick" James Poquette and Colleen (Gerrits) Poquette.
He graduated from West De Pere High School in 2002 and married his high school sweetheart, Bobbi Joy Carder Poquette, in 2005 and they later divorced in 2014.
Rick left behind three beautiful children: Ryker, Rylee, Brynn, and their mother, Bobbi Joy Poquette; his parents, Dick and Colleen; Sarah (Phoenix Daniels) Poquette; nieces: Ann and Christin Daniels; maternal grandmother, Leone Benner; and step-grandmother, Mary Gerrits. He is further survived by many, many, many aunts, uncles, and cousins (this happens when you have a large family).
He was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Earl and Mary (Waznick) Poquette; aunt, Margaret Van Lanen; uncle, Tommy Poquette; cousins: Evan Van Lanen, David Poquette, and Aaron Meeuwsen; his maternal grandfather, Marvin Gerrits; and step-grandfather, William Benner.
