Mr. John Clyde Pollock, Jr., son of the late John Clyde Pollock, Sr. and Ethel Edwards Pollock, was born on June 15, 1967 and departed this earthly realm unexpectedly Friday, February 10, 2023 in Foley, AL.
John was educated in Lexington School District #5 where he excelled in academics, wrestling and brick masonry at Irmo High School. During his teenage years, he started learning the craft of swimming pool construction, of which he loved and perfected his skills throughout the rest of his life. To say that he was multifaceted is an understatement - he was the best at not only pool construction, but concrete finishing, brick masonry, house painting, and so much more.
An avid outdoorsman, John was drawn to the stillness of the woods and the wonders of nature. He relished hunting with his nephews and hunting buddies and loved fishing, especially with his “girls”, where he did more assisting than fishing.
John was a praying man that enjoyed a deep personal relationship with God. He never met a stranger, always had a joke and a smile, was generous, kind beyond measure, and full of compassion - all without judgment.
He was preceded in death by his loving sister, Bobby Jean Pollock. Left to cherish fond memories include: his wife, Carol Pollock of Mobile, AL; son, Mr. Arias Martin (Barbara) of SC; daughters, Ms. Tarion Pollock and Ms. Samantha Pollock, both of Mobile, AL; grandson, Amir Green of SC; granddaughters, Sierra and Taylor Martin of SC and Ava Williams of Mobile, AL.
Sisters: Elder Princetta White (George), Annette Hall (Charles), Kathy Pickett (Lanelle), Connie Pollock, Ida Blocker (Sanford), Tiwana Pollock (Greg); brothers: McChiven Pollock (Tobie), Eric Pollock (Marilyn), Brian Pollock (Christy). Aunts: Mattie Nixon, Elease Pollock, Ruth Wyman, Shirley Brown, Eva Pollock, Mary Lybrand, Floria Pollock, Carolyn Pollock; uncles: Roosevelt Pollock (Sarah), Larry Pollock, Donald Pollock; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends, all of whom love and miss him dearly
