Condolences Goes Out To Sandra Jones And The Entire Family Of The Late Jesse Lee Jones Tarboro NC

I met this humble coaching, singing brother several years ago when my son played Upward Bound Basketball. He coached my son for 2 years. He and his wife his assistant coach did a great job with the children. It was such a joy to see he and his wife coaching because I could feel the passion they had. I credit the motivation they had for my son and the others because I truly believe they are one of the reasons why my son is where he is in life today.

Stoney was a fine brother and he was the same everytime I seen him. He would always give me some encouraging words when I was in his presence especially when I attended the Rocky Mount City Council meetings and he was working the door and/or the room.

I didn’t know that Stoney and I was the same age until someone told me the other day that they went to school together and they came out in 1981. Now reading this I seen he was born on the day before Christmas in 1962 and I was born the next day Christmas Day 1962 and also graduated in 1981.

Condolences goes out to the family of the late Stoney L. Battle.

Condolences Goes Out To The Family Of The Late Don Pollard & Family

It is with great sadness we were notified that the former Fire Chief of Princeville Volunteer Fire Department, Chief Don Pollard, transitioned from time to eternity.

During his distinguished career and dedicated service to the Princeville Fire Department, he faithfully served in many capacities while working his way through the ranks. Chief Pollard’s passion for the service to his community was so unmistakable and plain. He is most noted for his unrelenting leadership during a trying and turbulent time for Princeville Fire Department when the flood of 1999 destroyed the station, equipment, and countless other things that left the members with the lingering question: “Where do we go from here?” Chief Pollard’s response was “we’re going FORWARD from here.”

We are thankful to have derived an advantage of life lessons while serving under Chief Pollard’s leadership. One of many lessons from his leadership that we thrive on today is if something is highly valued and is of great significance and is important to you, STAND YOUR GROUND even when it’s disfavored by others. This lesson did not come without a warning. He demonstrated that before you stand your ground, you must do your due diligence to make certain that you are RIGHT.

To his wife, children, grandchildren and great grands, thank you for sharing Chief Pollard with us up til the day he traded in his fire gear with 39 years of service for a fishing rod of retirement.

In closing, there is a story told of a man who hosted his friends over for a dinner. When his friends arrived, they noticed that the host kept getting up and going in the bedroom. After the third or fourth time, one of the friends asked the host, “what are you doing?” The host replied, “every night I check on my children when they go to bed. I check on them periodically because they all fall asleep at different times. But what is interesting is in the morning, they get up at the same time.” Here it is! Take comfort in knowing that Chief Pollard may have fallen asleep first, but he’s going to get up with us at the same time in that great getting up morning. Take comfort and rest in this promise.

On behalf of Chief A. Brown, Deputy Chief L. Harris, the officers, members, auxiliary and Board of Directors of Princeville Fire Department, we offer our sincerest condolences. Our prayers are with you today, tomorrow and in the days ahead.

In His service,

Chaplain Alvin Lafon Jones
