Mr. Pollock was a chemical engineer with Mobil Chemical Company, a division of Mobil Oil, and retired as vice president after 22 years.

The business is now run by his son, Steve.

He attended Carnegie Tech, where he was a lettered tennis player, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and earned a master’s degree from Columbia University.

He served in the U.S. Navy as an ensign in the Pacific Theater.

He played many years of golf at Shackamaxon Country Club. He served as a member of the boards of Temple Beth El of Cranford and Temple Emanu-El of Westfield and was committed to supporting the Jewish community.

Predeceased by his son Bruce (Maureen), he is survived by his wife of 65 years, Mildred; his son, Steve (Gail) of Collingswood; his daughter, Ada (Alan) of Milton, Mass.; a brother, Stanley of Pittsburgh; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
