Randy Pollard passed away January 11, 2019 at his home in Hilton Head. Born in Pelzer, he was a son of the late Harry Chislum Pollard and Dorothy Ann Welborn. He served his country in the US Marine Corps from 1958 to 1962, and remained active in his brotherhood in the Marine Corps League “Speedy” Wilson Chapter. Randy was a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge and Jamil Temple Shrine. A lover of stories and adventure, his obituary could fill volumes, but he told us to keep it short!
