Quinace Terrell Pollard, was born on January 21,1953, in Birmingham, Alabama to Freeman and Rosie Lee Pollard. I was the special child; fifth out of ten and was better known as QP, QT, Quin and brother. In the early 60’s my family migrated to Chicago, IL on the South Side (Hooterville) where I attended grammar school and high school. Here I had my most fun, wearing my dashikis. I graduated from Harlan High School as class Vice President and captain of the football team. I was an active community activist and received a scholarship to Clark College in Atlanta, GA. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Chicago State University where I earned a degree in Accounting. I later became a Professional Tax Practitioner in 1995 and received my certification from the National Association of Tax Practitioners.
My parents Freeman and Rosie Lee were founders of my family church; Burnside Community Baptist Church in Chicago, IL where I “SAANG” in the Young Christian Warriors Choir, “Open Our Eyes.” I later became a member of Antioch Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA, where I also shared my creative vocal skills. In 2008 I became a member of Liberty Baptist Church and was ordained as a Deacon, served as President of the Men’s Ministry, taught the New Members Class and served as Financial Treasurer.
I loved being me! Active, opinionated, and always having a zest for dressing and cultured things. I lived my life to the fullest and mostly the way I wanted to. I love to be heard and I loved my travels! I mostly love my family, close friends and just engaging with people. When I loved you, you knew it! I was a superb tax preparer, a great consultant, and an excellent analyst. I also was an above average cook and I always stand true to myself. While I could be stubborn, I also had empathy, compassion, and knew how to forgive. I could also be very persuasive. I hope to be remembered for a kind gesture, a happy smile and grand spirit. I was a notary, I fed the homeless and worked with organizations such as the “Foster Grandparents Program.” I was also a proud member of staff at Jumpstart.
I grieved for my parents, Freeman T. (Brother), Pe’Cola F. (Sister), Jacqueline (Sister), and Wendy J. (Sister).
I married the love of my life Agnes Duncan who I met in high school in 1967, while in music class. Our love united for 53 years, and our twin sons Jaren Elliott and Jarius Q. and grandson Cruz – came out of this beautiful elongated union. In addition to my wife and sons, my memory will remain in the hearts of Judith V. (Sister), Ronald J. (BrotherDaun L. (Brother), Rodderick P. (Brother), and Ouidie M. (Sister). Let’s always remember to celebrate the gift of love, God, and family and live our life as if it’s our last! Our life on this Earth may be timely and not promised, but what’s ahead of me is worth celebrating and that’s my greatest journey…the eternal life that’s ahead of me! -Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”
I rest in peace…… Quinace T. Pollard.
