LARRY WAYNE POLLOCK
January 11, 1948 - September 6, 2021
Larry leaves to mourn daughter Lana Borges (Pollock) and husband David; son Larry Pollock and (Soula Mikos); and grandchildren, Chris, Livia and Luke. He is survived by his favourite Aunt Marie and many cousins, nieces, nephews. Larry was predeceased by his father William Pollock and mother Eunice Campbell; brother Bill Pollock and sister Barbara Mcleod.
Larry had a hard life growing up but utilized his experiences to dedicate himself to be a hard worker and provide a better life for his family. He excelled at his career as a manager in the transportation industry where he spent over 35 years at Reimer Express Lines.
Living with Larry was never a dull moment as he strived to be the center of attention. You could always count on him to show up at events telling jokes and hunting stories and one could always expect that he would go through great lengths to pull pranks or scare the daylights out of people. It also should be noted that Larry also made for a fearful adversary should you ever end up on his bad side as he lived to stand up for others and fight for what was right. Larry loved movies and music, but his true passion was being outdoors hunting and fishing with good friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 18 at 1:00 p.m., in the chapel of Voyage Funeral Home, 472 Kirkfield Street at McBey Avenue. All are welcome to attend.
In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to The Harry J. Enns Discovery Centre "Oak Hammock Marsh", Larry's favourite place in all of Manitoba.
You are finally at peace now "Big Lar".
You were a "Good Fellow",
Forever loved and missed.

I work at Larry's doctor office. I will miss him very much. I looked forward to his visit. We would always tease and joke with each other. There was never a dull moment when he came in. I will miss him. RIP Cathy - Posted by: Cathy (Friend) on: Sep 19, 2021

I spent several years working for and with Larry at Reimer Express at the very beginning of my career. I learned many things from that time and use much of it today. Larry was committed and hard working and loved a good joke and a laugh at work. I’m sorry for your loss - Posted by: Don Mustard (Co worker) on: Sep 13, 2021
Dear Eileen, Lana, Larry and family, please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of Larry. I fondly remember the many times both our families would get together and especially remember the many hunting and fishing trips Larry and I went on--goods times for sure. Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope the good memories you hold will see you through this difficult time. Ralph Kuny - Posted by: Ralph Kuny (Friend) on: Sep 13, 2021
