Werner J. Poppe
Of Arlington Heights

Werner J. Poppe was born on March 7, 1934 in Chicago, Illinois to Leo and Maria (nee Kissling) Poppe. He completed his life journey surrounded by family on Saturday, March 23, 2019.

Werner served in the Army from February 1954 until January 1956 achieving a rank of Specialist Third Class while stationed in Alaska. After leaving the Army, Werner’s career began as a tool and die maker in Chicago, later working for 20+ years at Skild in Elk Grove Village and retired as a plant foreman after completing 20+ years of service at American National Can. Werner was a jack of all trades. He enjoyed having garage sales, helping anyone who needed a repair or something built, watching his favorite TV shows, and so much more. Most of all, he loved his family and always made time to be with his children and grandchildren.
