BRADSHAW – Norman Pollard, most recently resident at Loretto House Personal Care Home, passed away with his daughter at his side, in the early morning of November 22, 2004. Norman was born in Padiham, Lancashire, England on July 26, 1912. He came to Canada with his parents Alfred and Mary in 1914 to make their home in Regina. Norman attended Albert Elementary School and Balfour Collegiate. Norman met Evelyn, his wife to be, ice skating, and they married in June 1948. Norman had limitless love and endless pride for his daughters and grandson; his grandson Michael was the apple of his eye. He wanted for his children and grandchild everything he did not have during his childhood and youth. He had a wonderfully close relationship with his niece and his great-nieces loved him dearly. Norman made a friend of everyone he met and was always sincerely interested in others. He had a heart of gold and was generous to a fault. His 35 years with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool led to many continuing friendships, as did his retirement career as a court runner. Norman was proud to have been a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps stationed on the west coast during WWII. He was Past Grand Master of the Flagship Masonic Lodge, and a member of the Scottish Rite and the Royal Canadian Legion. Norman also shared his time and talents as a member of the AOTS men’s club and an elder at Westminster United Church. Norman and Evelyn shared many interests and activities including skating and badminton (in their early days) bowling, lawn bowling, and their summers at the family cabin at Bird’s Point, Round Lake. In later life, Norman developed a keen interest in model cars, rail cars and railway lanterns. Predeceased by his parents, Mary and Alfred Bradshaw, brother Art, and sister-in-law May, and on November 18, 2004 his dear wife Evelyn, he is survived by daughter Beverley and grandson Michael, and daughter Linda, all of Regina; niece Dianne Bradshaw (John Hooper) and great-nieces Marina and Andrea Pitsiladis all of Montreal. Flowers are most gratefully declined; those wishing to may make donations to a charity of their choice.
