Fallen lineman David Schrock
Please accept our sincerest gratitude.
Holly, Wyatt and Levi Schrock
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My husband is a Lineman IBEW Local 1277. He was severely burnt on a power line I'm grateful he's still alive. He shared a hospital room at Emmanuel burn center in Or with another Lineman that Linemans brother came to visit he was missing an arm. It's such a hazardous job. Prayers for this beautiful family.
Holly, Wyatt, and Levi - my husband, Rusty Poage, is also a power lineman and worked with your husband/dad. In fact, Rusty is out on storm now, restoring power to Portland. We are so sorry about this. Your husband/dad looks so much like our Rusty in his lineman clothes, happy working on storm to support his family. It really brought the reality home to us of how our men put their lives on the line. We have three teenage boys, two at home (Connor, 17 & Owen, 15). My boys tragically & unexpectedly lost their biological father four years ago. It has been difficult. My heart is heavy with your loss and I am praying for you to be held in God's grace.
