Leaf River – Harry Poggioli Jr., 74, of Leaf River, passed away peacefully, on Monday, May 28, 2018, surrounded by his family, at Mercyhealth Rockford Memorial Hospital. Born May 28, 1944, in Belvidere, the son of Harry Albert and Nina Mae (Tate) Poggioli Sr. The Poggioli family moved to Leaf River where Harry’s parents operated Poggioli’s Royal Blue Store for many years.

He was a mentor sharing his knowledge of his work with others. In addition to the love that he had for his children, Harry had a special love for his grandchildren and great-grandsons.

Harry’s family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Hosne Begum and the many wonderful nurses at Mercyhealth Cancer Center in Rockford, who knew Harry as Grandpa, for their phenomenal care, as well as to the entire staff on A3 for the comfort they provided during his final days.
