AUGUSTA - James "Jim" Pollard, 92, slipped peacefully into the arms of Jesus, his personal Savior, on Monday, Aug. 6, 2018. He was currently a resident at the Augusta Center for Health and Rehabilitation.
He was born on Oct. 15, 1925, the son of James P. and Sylvia Pollard. Jim grew up on the family dairy farm in Benton.
Jim was a member of the Second Baptist Church in Waterville, where he attended faithfully until 2015, when he became a resident at Capital City Manor in Augusta.
He enjoyed playing softball in his youth, was an avid Red Sox fan, was an accomplished figure skater; Jim was so good that he had Olympic potential but chose to remain on the family farm. He spent many hours watching professional wrestling and westerns on TV, he was especially fond of leisurely drives to the ocean with Carol and attending the Skowhegan State Fair to watch horse and tractor pulling events. Jim enjoyed spending time with family and friends, he was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. To know him was to love and respect him. Jim also enjoyed the company of his cherished dog of many years, Abby.
