Edward Vee Pollard, Jr., 84, of Friendswood, TX passed away on Thursday, August 9, 2018. He was born August 6, 1934 to Edward Vee Pollard, Sr. and Carmella Marasckin Pollard in West Columbia, TX.
Ed graduated from Alvin High School and Sam Houston State University.

They lived in Manvel, TX for 38 years before moving to Friendswood, TX in 2001. He retired from Getty Oil and Exxon Mobile, where he worked as a Physicist.
He enjoyed old westerns and he was a skilled “Do-It-Yourselfer” who was adept at carpentry, gardening and automotive repair.
