John David Poetz
February 15, 1966-June 29, 2022
When John Poetz came to SKI Landscape 33 years ago, we knew we had hired someone special. His strength, his determination, his independence and his loyalty to the company made John the heart and soul of any SKI crew. His knowledge of hardscapes and landscape installation was unsurpassed. John’s dogged personality kept each task on schedule. No matter how rainy, muddy, hot or cold, John would see each project through—a job well done.
According to Mark Reynold, SKI’s landscape architect, John “was always game to try new things that he had never done before and if I could draw it he could build it. So much of his work will outlive all of us. The walls he built will still stand. The trees he planted will continue to grow all over Indianapolis…he was a good man who did good things.”
John, may you wander the great green pastures of heaven knowing you won’t have to mow or pull weeds ever again! Thank-you and bless you.
