It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Orville Pollard. He passed suddenly at St. Paul’s Hospital, on February 27, 2022, at the age of 98.
Orville was born on August 6, 1923, in Blain Lake, SK. Orville was predeceased by his father Charles Pollard, mother Ellen Pollard, brothers Ivan, Allan, Joe, Judson, and Edwin Pollard, sister Noreen Graham and son-in-law Ron Materi.
He is survived by his loving wife Annie, sisters Pearl Freimark and Margaret Johnson. His children; Lorne (Chris) Pollard, Linda Materi (Hank Van Ham), Darrell (Bev) Pollard and Doug (Marilyn) Pollard.
Numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Orville was a veteran of WW2. He fought with the 6th anti-tank division as a gunner in a RAM tank.
He enjoyed farming, working with horses, fishing and spending as much time as he could with his wife, family and friends.
He was always willing to stop what he was doing to have a visit or help out a neighbour. Orville enjoyed telling stories and playing the harmonica.
When he would get into a story or song, all would stop to enjoy. He will be dearly and greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Royal Canadian Legion #63.
Special thanks to the Royal Canadian Legion and Cherished Memories Funeral Home for all of their support and assistance.
Celebration of Orville’s life will be held on Friday, March 4, 2022, at 11:00 am at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch#63, 606 Spadina Crescent West in Saskatoon, SK. Interment to follow at Woodlawn Cemetery.
Mrs Pollard and family,
I am very sorry to learn of Mr Pollard’s passing.
I don’t remember ever a time seeing him that he was not smiling.
He will be missed, and your memories cherished.
