It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son, father, brother, and uncle, Thomas Raymond Pollard, on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013 in Fort Frances, Ont.

Tom was born Dec. 6, 1963 in Sioux Lookout, Ont. to Donald and Delores Pollard. The family moved to Fort Frances in 1978.

Tom is survived by his mother, Delores Pollard, of Fort Frances, Ont., and his father, Donald Pollard, of Winnipeg, Man.; his children, Sabrina Miller and Matthew Vandrunen; and sisters, Debra Elias of Fort Frances, Ont., Linda (Chris) Carmody of Emo, Ont., and Nicole Pollard of Fort Frances, Ont.

Tom also is survived by his nieces and nephews, Fawn, Jennifer, Jesse, Terry, Jasmyn, and Nolan; and his special friend; Denis Buckshot, and family.

Tom loved skidooing and fishing. He often enjoyed having family and friends over for barbecues. He had a great love for food and he enjoyed cooking.

Some of his proudest moments were spending his time with his daughter, Sabrina, cooking together. They had a lot in common and enjoyed each other’s company.

For the people who knew him best, Tom often is remembered for being a jokester. He loved pulling pranks and making jokes, and often at someone else’s expense.

He had a contagious laugh and we will all miss him.

He had a lot of pride working for the Public Works in Fort Frances for more than 20 years and he thrived on working hard.

Tom’s door always was open and a willing hand was there for those who needed it.

Cremation has taken place and a family service will be held at a later date.

If desired, in memoriam donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
