Obituary Condolences

Gale Robert Pollock 1/1/1944 ~ 6/10/2011 Gale Robert Pollock was born on New Year's Day, 1944, in Salt Lake City Utah. After a month-long battle with respiratory problems, he passed away on June 10, 2011, at John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek, CA with family by his side. He was a kidney cancer survivor for 18 years. Gale loved his family first and foremost. He was described by many as being kind, gentle, patient, fair, and an extraordinary model of a man. Gale also had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. We will miss his smile! The nature of his work as a Boilermaker required Gale to travel frequently, but his home for the past 22 years was Oakley, CA. The support of our friends during his ordeal has been comforting and greatly appreciated! He touched the lives of young and old, and loved his role as "honorary" dad and grandpa to many. Gale had many hobbies, but his favorite pastime was fishing. He would sit for hours at the end of his in-law's dock at Donner Lake, and had a reputation for his catches! Gale's other passions were golf, trap-shooting, and going on cruises. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Judy; sons, Troy and Bradley (Robin); daughters, Lori Lynn (Mitch), Kristin (Jim), and Jennifer; mother, Phyllis; brothers, Rod (Joan) and Marty; sister, Sherri (Dave); nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert. There will be a casual "Remembrance" luncheon on Saturday, June 25, 2011 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 7473 W. Ensign Park Circle (3040 S.), in Magna, Utah. Online condolences can be sent to galepollock@gmail.com and will be posted along with photos and a DVD at the memorial.
