Mark Evans Born 8/2/1949 in Tacoma, passed peacefully at home 11/8/2009, after a year-long ordeal with a brain tumor. Mark lived his entire life in the Spanaway, Parkland, South Hill areas of Pierce County and spent his entire working career in the grocery business in the area. Mark was a quiet man. For many it was hard to know him, although few could not recognize and appreciate the results of his mechanical and hands-on talents. To describe or list, the ways in which Mark supported and valued his kids, grandkids, family and friends is truly impossible. They were his life and he was devoted to them. Anyone who knew Mark could expect that he would wish for no funeral or memorial services.

Bryan R. Pollock went home to be with the Lord Monday, November 9, 2009 following a long, courageous battle with cancer. He was born November 21, 1951 in Albuquerque, NM, the second son of Ralph B. Pollock and Lucie L. (Nunns) Pollock. At an early age, his family moved to the Northwest where he attended schools in Washington and Oregon. He graduated from Sunset High School, Beaverton, in 1970. While a student at Portland State University, he came to the Lord through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. Following graduation in 1974, he worked a short time for General Foods, then joined Campus Crusade as a journalist for Worldwide Challenge magazine. This work gave him opportunities to minister in California and Mexico. While in Mexico, the Lord called him to full time pulpit ministry. He left Crusade to attend Western Conservative Baptist Seminary in Portland, Oregon. It was during this time he met Susan Lyn Phillips, whom he married May 16, 1987. Their first year together was spent in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada as an intern at Circle Drive Alliance Church. Upon completion of the internship they returned to the U.S., where he began his first pastorate at Bethesda Baptist Church in Tacoma, WA. In 1999, he left Bethesda to plant a new work, Pilgrim Bible Church, where he remained as pastor until his death. He is survived by his wife, Susan, and children: Sarah, Jonathan, David, Josiah, Esther, Daniel, Hannah, Grace and James, all of Tacoma; as well as his mother Lucie, and brother Jeffrey of Sumner, WA; and father and mother-in-law Gerald and Joleen Phillips of Beaverton, OR and brother and sister-in-law Jeffrey and Irma Phillips of Mission Viejo, CA and their children Brandon and Alexa; and many cousins, aunts and uncles. A devoted father, Bryan was committed to all aspects of his children’s lives, especially their home education, which led him to serve on the board of Christian Heritage Home Educators of Washington. But, most importantly, he shared his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Bryan’s life will continue to stand as a powerful testimony to all who knew him. Stalwart faithfulness, holy affection for God, passion for the truth of God’s Word, loving father, husband, and pastor — these are just a few of the qualities that shone from his life. A memorial service will be at 11:00AM, on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at Life Center, 1717 S. Union Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98405. A fund has been established for the ongoing support of his family. Checks made out to Pilgrim Bible Church can be sent to 14207 81st Ave. E., Puyallup, WA 98373, designated for the Bryan Pollock Memorial Fund.
