Maj William F (Retired) Pollock
April 7, 1930 – May 21, 2017
Passed away peacefully in Chilliwack at the age of 87. Predeceased by his parents, and numerous aunts and uncles. Bill grew up in Grenfell Sask, the only child and challenge of Fred and Jessie Pollock. He would join the Reserves in the 1940’s. This is where he discovered his passion in life that would lead him into a 30 year career, first in the artillery and later as a helicopter pilot in the Canadian Armed Forces. He would serve in Korea, Germany & the Middle East and places in between. Along for the adventure was his wife of 60 years, Margaret, and together in tow, they raised 3 children. In his 87 years, Bill collected numerous life long friends from cousins and school mates to friends and comrades in his military family. Bill lovingly leaves his many cherished memories with his wife, Margaret, and his 3 children Mark (Brenda), Lynn (Rocky) and Jamie (Marla), as well as several cousins including his close friend and cousin Janet. Bill was blessed to have known his 3 grandchildren and his 5 great grandchildren. We would like to extend our many thanks to the Chilliwack General Hospital, 3rd and 4th floor staff as well as the volunteers & staff of Cascade Hospice for their excellent care of Bill during his stay. Thanks also to Dr. Kroeze and Dr. Chris. A gathering of family and friends will be held a future date.
“Stand down dear and faithful servant”
