Robert Mason Pollock Sr. 1920-2010 LENOX Robert Mason Pollock, Sr., 89, of Devonshire Estates, Lenox, died peacefully at home on Friday, September 3, 2010, just prior to his 90th birthday. Before moving to Devonshire Estate three years ago, he had lived in Lanesborough for 51 years. Born December 7, 1920, in Buffalo, New York, he was the son of Dr. Morris Pollock and Evelyn Mason Pollock Ellis, and the stepson of Louis W. Ellis. Bob moved to Staten Island, New York, with his mother at age two and lived with his maternal grandparents throughout his childhood. His grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Mason, chief engineer on a sea going tug, was an important influence and surrogate father. He attended the University of Delaware from 1939 to 1943. Some of his fondest memories were from his time at the home of the Fightin' Blue Hens of Delaware. He graduated as a mechanical engineer and was immediately commissioned in the, in 1942 as an Ensign. When stationed in Washington, D.C., at the Naval base, he met Anna Bean, whom he married on October 16, 1943, after a 12-week courtship! They traveled together to Boston Navy Yard, Great Lakes Training Center in Illinois, and to Norfolk Virginia Navy Base, where he was promoted to Lt.JG. He was assigned to the Amphibious Forces and participated in the invasion of Southern France in August 1944. He was the skipper of an LCT (Landing Craft Tank) with a crew of thirteen. Following VE Day in May 1945 he returned home for 30 days leave before deployment to the Pacific theatre. During this time he met for the first time his first-born son, Robert Mason Pollock, II, age 7 months. While vacationing in New Jersey, the Japanese surrendered, and he mustered out. Thus bringing to a close the part of Bob's life that was the most meaningful to him. After the War, he was employed as a mechanical engineer at, Company in Pittsfield from 1947 until retirement in 1977. As a resident of Stormview Road in Lanesborough for 52 years, he served on many town boards and commissions. These included the Town By-Law Committee, Town Moderator, Water and Sewer Department, and the Finance Committee. He served many offices at the Unitarian Church including President, Treasurer, Buildings and Grounds, and Executive Committees. His interests were many and varied. He was an early and passionate veteran for peace, participating in marches on Washington during the, and draft counseling. For decades he actively pursued his hobby as a portrait photographer, asking friends and family, "Could I trouble you to take your portrait? It would mean a great deal to me." Bob also particularly enjoyed wilderness canoe camping which became the annual family adventure for years in the wilderness of Baxter State Park and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine. Bob was also a member of the GE Pistol Team. At home, he prided himself on keeping his seven acres, as well as many trails in the surrounding lands, mowed by means of a vintage Gravely Tractor. Another passion was the wildlife he loved seeing at his home; deer, fox, coyotes, turkey, geese, and black bears that regularly visited the compost pile and bird feeders on the porch. A cougar family roaming the land was a particularly fond memory of Bob's. He was appreciated by his friends and neighbors for his mechanical ability to repair the unfixable appliances and tackle undaunted the repair of large projects and appliances. Besides his wife of 66 years, Mr. Pollock is survived by two sons, Robert M. Pollock, Jr. of Pittsfield and Dennis R.
