Paul Henry Pollard, 61, of Sunbury, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018, at his home.
He was born Nov. 5, 1956, in Allentown, a son of the late Clayton Lamar and Elizabeth (Esias) Pollard. He was married for 28 years to the former Rita Huber who survives.
Paul was a 1976 graduate of Danville High School and attended Bloomsburg University.
He was employed as a delivery driver for Source One Imaging and Danville Sales and Service. He was also a cook for many years at Franklin's Restaurant.
The cancer ravaged his body, but not his soul. When we lose someone, we mourn. We cry for their pain, their fear and their sorrow, but mostly we mourn for ourselves and our loss, for all the things that are forever gone except in our memories, for that which we can't replace, for that which will never be again; for all that he was to us; our husband, father and our friend; for his humor, his impressions, his sensitive side others may not have seen; for the storyteller, the bass player and the cook; for the music lover from Blue Oyster Cult to Warren Zevon, Neil Diamond and the Talking Heads; Monty Python lover and Eagles fan - Go Eagles!; for the keeper of trivia and odd things and a Manchester United fan; for all that he was to us.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons, Clayton Paul Pollard and Carl William Pollard; and one brother, John "Jack" Clayton Pollard. He was preceded in death by a half brother and a half sister.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a celebration of life at 1 p.m. Saturday at Visneski Funeral Home Inc., 42 W. Mahoning St., Danville with Pastor Richard Fangmann, of Zion Lutheran Church, Sunbury, officiating.
The family requests no flowers. Memorial contributions may be made to Sunbury Animal Hospital, 3920 Route 890, Sunbury, PA 17801, or to a charity of the donor's choice.
