Elmer E. Pooler Jr.
March 15, 1926 – June 16, 2016

Elmer E Pooler “Jr.”, 90, of Scituate, died peacefully on June 16th, 2016 surrounded by family and loved ones. He was the beloved husband of the late Ruth, Marion and Anna Pooler, loving father of Sharron, Ruthann, Allen and Cheryl and step father to Russ King, John, Bill and Bruce Simons. Also survived by 17 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and too many friends to list.

Elmer had many passions during his long life. His love of speed led to both motorcycle and stock car racing. He was a well-known midget and stock car racer at Norwood arena until his racing career ended in a horrific accident in the early 50’s. He worked as a welder at the Quincy Shipyard during World War II, but his specialty came later when he worked on some of the first radar antennas at D.S. Kennedy in Cohasset. This work brought him to Scituate and even closer to his other love, the ocean and his all-time favorite job, Harbormaster. Elmer gave his care and watchful eye to the boaters of Scituate waters for more than three decades. He served thirty-four years in the Harbormaster’s department; twenty years as assistant working the midnight shift and fourteen years as Harbormaster. Even after retiring in 2003, Elmer could be seen around town in his “EEP” mobile continuing his watch over the harbor activities.

Visiting hours will be on Tuesday, June 21st from 4-8 PM at the Richardson-Gaffey Funeral home, 382 First Parish Rd, Scituate from 4pm-8pm. Funeral Service Wednesday, June 22nd at 10:30 AM at the First Trinitarian Congregational Church, 381 Country Way, Scituate followed by burial at Union Cemetery, Scituate.
