Obituary For Rev. Hans G. Poppe, Sr.

Rev. Hans G. Poppe, Sr., (SSG. Ret) 86 of Greensburg and Elizabethtown KY, left his earthly bounds to receive his heavenly reward and be reunited with his wife, Betty of 52 years, on May 20, 2022, at his residence.

Rev. Poppe was a native of Delaware City, DE and the son of the late Adolph W. and Luise M. Poppe.

He was a former Pastor in Savannah, GA and member of New River Worship Center. He was a U. S. Army veteran, former firefighter and Life Member of the Delaware City, DE Fire Company where he also served on the Board of Directors. He was also a professional semi-truck driver and semi-professional bowler (lots of trophies, very little prize money).

He proudly served 24 years in the U.S. Army with a military occupational specialty of Motor Transport Operator and Nuclear Biological and Chemical Specialist. His service included three tours in Vietnam. He was awarded the Bronze Star for Heroism in Vietnam, the Good Conduct Medal five times, the National Defense Service Medal, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, nine Overseas Bars, Driver’s and Mechanic Badge, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon, Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm, Vietnam Service Medal, and the Expert Marksman Award.

He was a loving and devoted husband for 52 years and a wonderful and proud father and doting grandfather. The only thing he loved more than his family was his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Betty Poppe in March; and his brothers, Waldemar W. Poppe, Sr. (Reds), William Poppe, Sr., Adolph Poppe, Jr., and Alan Poppe (Ethel).

Survivors include his son, Hans G. Poppe, Jr. (Jeri) of Prospect, KY; and one granddaughter, Téa Poppe of Prospect, KY and countless others who considered him to be their surrogate father/grandfather, especially the Smith family of Greensburg, KY who cared for him until his death (Gerald, Judy, Jamain, Keke, and Jamicheal), along with a host of friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting contributions be made to the Delaware City, DE Fire Company, P O Box 251, Delaware City, DE, 19706.

Funeral service will be 12:00 pm on Saturday, May 28, 2022, at Percell & Sons Funeral Home in Elizabethtown with Pastor Mike Willingham and Bro. Jeff Edwards officiating. Visitation will begin at 10:00 am.

Send flowers to the service of Rev. Hans G. Poppe, Sr.
