Charles Jonathan “John” Pollard II was born June 11, 1954 in Portsmouth, Ohio to the late Leatta Agee and John C. Pollard. He transitioned to his eternal life on Friday August 23, 2019, at Duke Raleigh Hospital, Raleigh, NC.
John, as he is affectionately known to his family and friends, served in our US Army from 1971 – 1973 and was honorably discharged. After he left the Army he made a career in Heating & Air Conditioning (HVAC). John was always willing to teach his trade and help those that needed an extra hand; many times at no charge.
John, loved his country and sharing stories of his time in uniform. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and his gun collection. He liked showing off his latest toy or gadget to those that showed interest. Lately he simply just enjoyed hanging out with a friend or two to chitchat. His most favorite thing was spending quality time with his wife Sandra, his son Jonathan and their beloved mascots Benji and Rusty at home. “There is no place like home” he would say “No place like home.”
John was an amazing man, a guy that could make you smile or laugh at the most simple of things. He will be truly missed but he will live in our hearts FOREVER!
John leaves to cherish his memory: his best friend and beloved wife of 35 years, Sandra G. Pollard; his son Jonathan Pollard III of the home; his daughter Karen Pollard Green of Wheelersburg, OH; his granddaughter Alexis Atkins also of Wheelersburg, OH. Mother-in-law Eulalia M. Gunn of Raleigh, NC; two sisters, brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws and a host of nieces, nephews and friends that he loved dearly.
A celebration of Mr. Pollard's life will be held at 6:00 pm Thursday, August 29, 2019 at his home, 114 Briggs Dr., Norlina.
