Jeffrey Lynn Pollard, Sr.


Jeffrey Lynn Pollard Sr., 67, of Columbus, Ohio, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2022, after a battle with lung cancer.

Jeffrey was born on July 13,1954 to John Mose Pollard and Margie Lee Pollard (Welch), in Opelika, AL. After graduating from Warren Western Reserve High School in 1972, he joined the U.S. Army, where he served as a Private in the 20th Battalion, 1st Brigade, 39th Regiment, and received an honorable discharge in 1978. Following his service, Jeffrey worked for the General Electric Company in Warren, Ohio, until his retirement in July,1998.

Jeffrey was a diehard fan of the Cleveland Browns and loved making jokes. In his free time, he enjoyed playing cards, the lottery, bowling, and bingo. He was a loving father and a man who would give you the shirt off his back, even if he wasn’t wearing one. He never met a stranger! Jeffrey will be dearly missed and always remembered.

Jeffrey was predeceased by his Parents, John Mose Pollard and Margie Lee Pollard, Brothers, Jonathan Pollard and James Pollard, and Brother-in-Law, Charles White. He is survived by his children, Jeffrey W. Pollard Jr., Julianne V. Pollard, Jordan A. Pollard, and honorary daughter, Paige Burns; grandchildren, Ava G. Pollard, Jaiden E. Pollard, and Jacori L. Pollard-StCyr; siblings, Margaret White, John T. Pollard, Jessie Pollard, Joel Pollard, Jerome Pollard, and Marla (Gary) Chilton.

Please join us in celebrating Jeffrey’s beautiful life at the Chapel of Peace (East Columbus) on Thursday, April 21, 2022. The calling hours will take place at 10am, with the service beginning thereafter at 11am. Following the service, there will be a procession to the Dayton National Cemetery, where Jeffrey will be laid to rest at 2pm.

    There are no words to express my sorrow. He made me laugh till I cried, talked about me till I wanted to cry. But all out of love. Cousin Jeffrey is more than a cousin, he’s my forever friend. I’m praying for our family. Till we meet again…

  10. Prayers to Julianne and the family. Mr. Pollard shared a beautiful spirit and could make everyone laugh, while lighting up the room with his wonderful personality. He will be deeply missed. I am blessed to have known him, may his soul rest in peace. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
