Pollard, Pearson Trulock "Tru" Pearson Trulock "Tru" Pollard went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 4, 2013. Tru was born June 17, 1933 in Waskom, Texas and graduated from N.T.S.U. in 1955. Afterward he entered the Marine Corps, was commissioned 2nd Lt, and spent time flying both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. After his a 4 year stint in the Marines, Tru found temporary employment flying offshore to oil rigs in the Gulf and ultimately was hired by Delta Airlines 1960. What a blessing, not only his dream job but also the opportunity to meet and marry the love of his life, Nancy Fish. Tru and Nancy settled in Dallas and started their family shortly thereafter. During a distinguished 33 year career with Delta, Tru flew the DC 6, DC7, DC8, DC9, Convair 440, Boeing 727, and retired in the left seat of the Lockheed L 1011. One of the many highlights of a great flying career was being selected as Captain of the Dallas Cowboys charter during the 1982 season. Tru retired from Delta in 1993 and started his second career as "Geekie," grandfather to 4 loving grandchildren. Tru and Nancy were both avid and talented golfers and more days than not could be found on the links at Prestonwood Country Club. Inseparable, they traveled extensively, were very active in the lives of their children and grandchildren and in their church, Grace Bible Church of Dallas where Tru served as both Elder and Deacon. The highlight of his life was his relationship with Jesus Christ and through that Tru was blessed beyond comprehension. A few years ago, Tru and Nancy were both simultaneously diagnosed with the maladies that would end their earthly lives. They saw this as a new opportunity to Glorify God by demonstrating the true meaning of "in sickness and in health" and both succeeded admirably. Tru is preceded in earthly death by his loving wife, Nancy and parents, Pearson and Sara Pollard. He leaves behind to cherish his memory sister, Marion Chandler; daughter, Kelly Foster and her husband, Joe Foster; son, Jeff Pollard and his wife, Leigh Pollard; granddaughters, Taylor Foster, Chandler Foster, Hayden Foster; grandson, Pearson Pollard; nephews, Joe and Bob Chandler and niece, Sara Beal as well as countless friends. A Memorial Service for Tru will be held at Grace Bible Church, Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. "I have received many unearned benefits and have reaped where I did not sow, it is God's Grace and certainly not anything I deserve."
