A mass of Christian burial was celebrated Jan. 10 at the Church of Saint Elizabeth, Avon, for James John Pollock of Avon. He passed away peacefully on Jan. 6, surrounded by his family, at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. James retired as a battalion chief in the Jersey City Fire Department in 1997. Prior to becoming a fireman, James worked as a truck driver and was a member of the Teamsters Union. James was a Marine Corp. veteran who served his country during the Vietnam War.

He was born in Jersey City and lived in Kearny before moving to Avon in 1979. From a very young age, James was a hardworking compassionate person who always put the needs of others in front of his own and took great care of his family. He was a fixture on the Avon boardwalk and loved his daily swims in the Avon pool every summer.
