GEORGE HENRY POLLON (published on May 23, 2009)

GEORGE HENRY POLLON It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of George Henry Pollon of Minnedosa on May 18, 2009 at Minnedosa Personal Care Home. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Kay of 77 years and son George and Dolores of Vernon, BC and grandchildren Kenneth (deceased), Keith and Angie of Calgary, AB, Calvin and Carol of Lethbridge, AB, Karen and Steve of Port Coquitlam, BC., Wesley of Vancouver, BC and son Wayne and June of Winnipeg, MB and grandchildren Jennifer and Sudakhar of Ottawa, ON, Jacklyn and Brad of Winnipeg, MB and Juliana of Winnipeg, MB. He is also survived by eight great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. George was the last survivor of the George Pollon Senior family in which he had five sisters Blanche, Emily, Ida, Doris, Nettie, and three brothers John, Victor, and Elmer. Dad was born in Clanwilliam, Manitoba on August 16, 1909 and attended Grey School but never completed his education as he had to help out on the farm. George spent his working career in farming and had a great love for the land. Throughout his farming years he was often fondly referred to as John Deere George . He was a keen hunter, fisherman, and even ventured into a bit of trapping and was a curling enthusiast. He was a member of the Minnedosa United Church, Odd Fellows Lodge and the Minnedosa Legion and at times chairman of the Minnedosa Coffee Row. In 1972 George and Kay retired from farming and moved to Minnedosa where he spent his remaining years and enjoyed gardening and growing roses. They both made a winter escape to Victoria for 33 years of their retirement. The family would like to take this opportunity to thank the home care providers at the Minnedosa Personal Care Home for the kind care and comfort given to him in his latter years. He will always be remembered in the hearts of his family as a kind and gentle man. A celebration of his life will be held in Minnedosa this summer.
