By Ken Blue
It was approximately 1962 when Joyce and I were invited to join Pastor Larry Pollock in Tukwila, WA. where he founded the Tukwila Baptist Church. Joyce and I lived in Kent at that time. Later we moved into the house next door to the Pollocks, I’m sure that was a nightmare to them. You see, I was about age 20 and already knew everything.
However, the Pollocks were very patient with us and understood how green we were. Pastor Pollock loved me, encouraged me, used me in God’s service and it was from his church I left for Bible College.
I am sad, because I miss my dear friend already. But, I rejoice that Pastor Pollock is no longer in pain and is with the Lord. I know that his wonderful family feels the same way.
I can say with certainty that any fruit in the ministry, I may have had, Pastor Pollock is responsible for it, and no doubt will receive the greater reward. Pastor Pollock was promoted to heaven at around 11:14 AM Friday, December 14, 2010. I look forward to seeing him soon.
Thank you, my friend.

He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years.
