Rich was born in Pueblo, Colorado, on October 25, 1963. He was the seventh of nine children born to John and Mary Ellen Pollmiller. Rich passed away on February 6, 2024.

Rich was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to so many.

Rich moved to Littleton, Colorado, in 1973 and graduated from Heritage High School in 1982. He worked many years in the automotive and tire industry and eventually moved into machining.
Rich married his wife, Kim, on July 21, 1990, in a famous double wedding with Mike and Tammie Pollmiller. Rich and Kim had their first daughter, Emily, in 1991 and their second daughter, Mary, in 1992.

In 2008, Rich opened his own machine shop called Focused on Machining which he eventually sold in 2016.

Rich and his wife Kim moved to Nebraska in 2017, where he worked at Malloy Electric.

Rich walked Emily down the aisle in October, 2020, and Mary down the aisle in May, 2022. Both of his sons-in-law got him into golf, which they all enjoyed doing every chance they got together.

Rich loved to go four wheeling, camping, loved the mountains, especially Taylor Park Reservoir, and he loved to fish.  Later, he played as much golf as he could and loved spending as much time as possible with his grandson, Dylan J.

Rich was preceded in death by his grandparents; parents; and eldest brother, Jim.

Rich is survived by his wife, Kimberly Pollmiller; daughters, Emily Hill (Tyler), Mary Weber (Mike); grandson, Dylan Hill; siblings: John, Bob, Mike, Cathy, Janice, Tom, and Sue; and his many nieces, nephews, other loving family members and friends.

    Kim, Emily, and Mary,

    Janice and I are at a loss for words on how we can express our sorrow and the pain that we share with you.

    Rich was a remarkable, and talented individual. He was always there to offer his help regardless of the task. Rich had a tremendous sense of humor, and zest for living the moment, which made us pause as he was teaching Sean how to ride jet skis at Lake Powell and splash the rocks.

    Although this is a life changing event for everyone, rest assured that he’s probably with John, Mary, and Jim sharing fishing stories.

    Peace and Love to all of you.

    Bob and Janice

    I meet Rich at a metro college visit with my students. He then cam to my classroom at Plattsmouth High School and completely cleaned and serviced our lathe and mill. He would come to teach me how to teach students to operate the machines properly. Although I only knew him for a short time, we built a friendship I will never forget. He was truly a great person to me and our program. Sorry he has left this world but now he is truly an angel as he always was.

    Kim and family, we were both so sad to see this. We loved running into you at the golf course – always a kind wave and words. We will always remember being the first couple you played in league. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Very sorry to hear about Rich’s passing. I worked with him through my role at Metro Community College, and always appreciated his positive and encouraging spirit. He was a good friend, and was always there for us at MCC whenever we had a need or an event for students.
    Sincere condolences to his family and friends, he will be missed.

    Kim, Mary, Emily our sincerest condolences in this very sad time.

    Where to begin but about 1980 at SIMS Tire a young high schooler trying to keep gas and tires on the Bronco. Rich was just like that picture 45 yrs earlier as he went about his duties if it was 9 in morning or 9 at nite and the snow was flying, that smile was always there and a can do attitude. We worked together off and on for about 8 years before going separate ways, me back to the military and Rich on to various career paths. As we met periodically through the years the same jovial and positive energy was always there. I can only imagine the countless people who were affected along this amazing journey. RIP Rich I’m sure the stories will continue to “inspire “.

    So sorry to hear of Rich’s passing. I knew Rich in the late 70’s when I hung around with his older brother Mike. Rich was kind and good person.
    My condolences to the entire Pollmiller family and the many friends I’m sure Rich had.
