Frank Pollock, the Life and legacy of a Community Builder
The Pollock Randall Funeral Home will prepare and stores the body of your loved one. It is a small, locally owned business that serves customers in southern Michigan since 1974. The company was started by Frank Pollock, an American worker who moved to Huron, Michigan, in that city’s northwestern region to construct scaffolding and work buildings for builders. Frank Pollock was also a carpenter and carver, so he naturally began a funeral home, also called a mortuary, in that area.
