Sad to hear; my personal favorite conference talk was one of his.
His 1984 general conference talk is very powerful. All church members should
look up the original talk.
I just gave a copy of The Simeon Solution, written by his wife, to a friend of
mine. Their life is a wonderful, amazing story! My condolences to the family.
Thank you for your wonderful examples!!!
Can't recommend Poleman's 1984 GC talk enough (look up the original... not the

So sorry to hear of his passing. My condolances to the family. I have loved his
To greater or lesser degrees, General Authorities minister to the needs of the
flock (in addition to administering the organization). Elder Poelman's ministry
greatly benefitted many of us in ways no other General Authority would do, and I

reverence can do in our lives. Thanks for the little hint.
After reading various comments here, I went and read his 1984 GC talk. It was
great, thanks for the recommendation.
I agree, his 1984 GC talk was one of the best I've heard, but you have to see
the original version. You can google it to see the original. The official
version was changed and re-recorded after conference and had some substantial
changes.He was an insightful and encouraging man. My condolences to
