In the fall of 2016, Jacob completed the requirements to receive his Eagle Scout Award. His service project, to boost school spirit at his high school, was to complete the chain link fence artwork which surrounds the athletic field. Jacob enjoyed memorizing and playing classical music on the piano. He also loved nature, the outdoors, camping, hiking, the mountains and beaches. Jacob is survived by his parents, Steven and DaraLynn Breiter of Henderson; his older brother, Arjay; his three sisters, Casiann, Leilani and Nicole; his grandparents, Lowell and Greta Breiter, Kay Starkey and Scott and Kari Wartena; along with many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

POOLE, ROSS  
ROSS POOLE Ross Griffin Poole, of Henderson, passed away Dec. 23, 2016. Ross was born March 18, 1936, in Glendale, Calif., to Otis R. and Ann Talley Poole. Ross went to schools in Eagle Rock, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles, and graduated from Eagle Rock High School in 1954. While in high school and junior college at Glendale College, Ross played basketball. Also during these formative years, Ross loved to fish streams, rivers, lakes or ocean. When he was very young, he worked on a fishing boat, where he learned to like fishing. He also learned about the painting business and some fun things like playing cards or the "ponies." He met his future wife, Patty Gray, while bowling in a league at Jewel City Bowl in Glendale, Calif., in September 1957. They hit it off and began a courtship that culminated in their wedding May 17, 1958, in Eagle Rock. They celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary May 17, 2016. They started their family with the birth of their twin daughters, Debra Lynn and Cheryl Ann, born May 12, 1959, and then added a son, Stephen Ross, born Oct. 19, 1960. Soon after, they proceeded to make a very big move to Las Vegas, in the late part of 1962, where many "track homes" were being built and there was a lot of work for painters. He worked with partners in a contracting business, Anzalone and Assoc., of San Fernando, Calif. A couple of years after coming to Las Vegas, they had another daughter, Kathryn Annette, born Aug. 15, 1964. Soon after the market changed, Ross and Bob Udlock formed the contracting business called R and R Painting. They then went on to be Ameritone Paint sellers at their own stores during the 1970's and 1980's. The painting partners included their wives, Patty Poole and Shirley Udlock. They did quite well in this business and sold the business in 1985. Ross would continue to work with Ameritone Paint in the corporate office. Ross and Patty lived in Carlsbad, Calif. from 1987 until 1995. They moved back to Nevada, and Ross worked with various painting companies until his retirement in 2003. As said above, Ross loved to fish. He would go fishing with his friends, Bob and Don Udlock, and always was willing to show anyone who wanted to learn to fish, how to do it. He also loved to play cards which he and Patty did most evenings. From an early age, he loved the ponies! While living back in Henderson, you could find Ross at the Green Valley Ranch Casino in the "racebook" area with all his cronies! He was preceded in death by his parents, Otis R. Poole in 1977, and Ann Talley Poole in 2002. Ross leaves behind his wife, Patty; daughters, Debra Walker (Dave McBride), Cheryl Smith (Darrell), Stephen Poole (Kathy) and Kathryn McCobb (Craig); grandchildren, Elizabeth Del Valle, her husband, Hartley, and their daughter, Emily, Michael Walker, his wife, Autumn, and their son, Phoenix, Griffin Walker (Paige), Danielle Smith, and Hailee and Rossie McCobb; sister-in-law, Peggy Poehler, her daughter, Heather Miller, her husband, Michael, and their son, Conrad, and her son, Christopher, his wife, Leigh, and their daughter, Astrid; and many dear family and friends. Celebration of life and wake will be 3-5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at Green Valley Ranch Casino and Hotel, 2300 Paseo Verde Parkway, Henderson, in the La Escada Room, Space 2 and 3.
