Thomas Charles Sidney Pollard (Tom)
20th June 1928 — 5th November 2019
It is with great sadness that the passing of Tom Pollard is announced.
Tom lived and worked in Haddenham for over 60 years, spending 32 years at Lucas's along with many other Haddenham residents. He and his wife Margaret were familiar faces to many in Haddenham particularly through their efforts in the establishment and support of the Catholic Church of The Good Shepherd.
Tom really enjoyed being part of the community and was great at remembering names and faces of people he'd worked or socialised with over the years. His eternal optimism and good humour (despite some bad jokes) made him a lovely man to know. He will be sorely missed by his friends and family.
The funeral will be held on Monday 18th November 2019. Family flowers only.
