Bruce Allen Pollock of Butler passed away on Tuesday morning in his home at the age of 67.
An avid golfer, Bruce had a scratch handicap at 18 and was the captain of Grove City College’s team his freshman year. He continued his love of golf almost until his passing, playing 18 holes then falling asleep watching golf on TV. His family thought this was ridiculous, but Bruce was always good for a laugh.
He also loved his kids’ colleges’ football teams, probably because he paid for the tuition. Virginia Tech and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania were two of his passions. He was endlessly patient shuttling the kids to these institutions.
He is survived by his wife and best friend (a very patient woman obviously) Rita, his son Evan, his daughter Sara, and his other (canine) daughter, Peaches, in addition to a sister, Kathy, and a nephew, Allen.
He is preceded in death by his father, Allen, his mother, Betty, and his beloved dog Churchill.
