Obituary

RUDOLPH TARAS POLLOCK (published on July 23, 2009)



RUDOLPH TARAS POLLOCK With deepest sorrow we say farewell to a good man, a loyal friend, brother, uncle, and great uncle. Rudy was born September 24, 1932, and died on Saturday, June 13, 2009, in the Richmond General Hospital in Richmond, BC. Born in The Pas, Manitoba, he spent his early childhood in Cold Lake, Manitoba. Later, the family moved to Winnipeg. His love of books and his passion for Lake Nutimik Lot#28 Block 3 in the Whiteshell explain his interests in the wildlife and environment of the region. His photography records the beauty of the seasons and the form and elegance of the bird, deer, fox and other wildlife populations of the Whiteshell. Rudy worked at many Manitoba Hydro projects, always returning to his unique home on Lake Nutimik. The Lot#28 Block 3 property became a comfortable destination for family members and friends and eventually their wide-eyed progeny eager to learn about boating, fishing, and the rules of outdoorsmanship. His dry spirit belied his true nature. He was a man of compassion and kindness who supported and mentored younger colleagues and relatives. He is survived by brother Calvin Pollock of Winnipeg MB, sister Violet Tittler of Richmond BC, nieces and nephews Leslie, Lorene, Calvin, Konrad, Michele, Susan, Lorene and Mark; grand nieces and nephews Casmir, Alicia, Rudi, Kateland, Jasmin, Jackson, Sarah, Konrad, Max and Jack. He will be missed and remembered by the presence of the photographic images of Lake Nutimik surroundings now present in the many homes of his relatives. In our prayers and love we celebrate his life.
