Lance Kevin Poelmann, 56, of Florida, NY. Lance died in a motorcycle accident on May 19th in West Milford, NJ.

Born and raised in his beloved Racine, Wisconsin, at the age of 23, he moved to the Tampa Bay area. He lived there for 22 years attending college, working, and
playing on softball and baseball teams. A born athlete, he competed in many sports throughout his lifetime including high jump, pole vault, and football in high school. After moving to Tampa Bay, he played with National Champion Red Tide baseball team.

A 4 -wheeling enthusiast, he competed in multiple Jeep 4 wheel drive off road Triathlons in the Smokey Mountains. Lance was a lifelong motorcyclist and enjoyed riding his Harley ’08 V-Rod around the picturesque Hudson Valley. He married Laura Miller and they had two sons, Hans and Vaughnn. The family moved to Warwick, NY in 2002, to raise their boys, and to be closer to family. Lance was a dedicated father, who enthusiastically coached little league and youth football teams. He learned the art of tuning downhill skis to support his sons’ love of downhill ski racing. As ski race parent, he spent every winter weekend on the hill watching, advising and photographing the skiers on the slopes. Lance is fondly remembered as a passionate father, coach, athlete, friend, and brother.
