Tanner Poeschel, beloved son, brother and friend passed away July 15, 2017 at the age of 22.

A Fort Worth native, Tanner received his degree in Business Administration from the University of Missouri in May 2017 and was looking forward to beginning a career with GCG Marketing later this summer. At Mizzou, Tanner was a member of the College of Business Cornell Leadership Program, Business Student Council, and a beloved member of Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity. An avid fly fisherman, Tanner was the founder of the Mizzou Fly Fishing Club, and creative content strategist for The Fly Lords. Tanner shared his passion for the outdoors, photography and fly fishing on his website taylorrivertroutbum.com .

Tanner attended St. Andrew Catholic School, and Nolan Catholic High School where he was a member of the Nolan Honor Council, varsity golf and football teams. Tanner’s strong Catholic faith influenced all aspects of his life including his strong sense of brotherhood and family. An outgoing, energetic young man, he was a loyal friend who always made time for others, and strived to bring out the best in those around him.

Tanner lived life passionately, with a love for the streams and mountains of Colorado, and the peace he found by driving the windy roads outside Crested Butte in his treasured jeep. Tanner enjoyed bringing people together for all occasions by grilling and cooking, as well as creating events to share his love and friendship.

Tanner is survived by his loving sister, Taylor; his parents, Frank and Tobye Poeschel; grandparents, Al and Betty Poeschel; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Tanner was preceded in death by his grandmother, Deanna Knotts.
