    We regret to advise of the death of Sergeant Darren Andrew Pollock, CD unexpectedly in Halifax, NS on 30 May 2018. 

    A member of Real Property Operations Unit (Atlantic), Sgt Pollock was born in 1976 in Saint John, NB and enrolled into the Canadian Armed Forces in Saint John in 1994 with the Royal New Brunswick Regiment. In November 2004, Darren joined the Canadian Military Engineers when he completed a component transfer to the Regular Force as a Water Fuel Environment {WFE) technician. He completed his Qualification Level 3 at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering (CFSME) in Gagetown, NB in July 2005 and had a successful and rewarding career as a WFE technician.

    Darren deployed to TF Afghanistan on ROTO 2 and then was a WFE instructor at CFSME Gagetown from July 2009 to July 2011. He was then posted to Canadian Forces Base Halifax, NS  as a WFE technician/supervisor. Darren deployed on ROTO 8, Op REASSURANCE from July to September 2017. He was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration 1st Clasp, and the General Campaign Star – South West Asia.

    Darren was a certified baseball coach for his local community. Regardless of the situation, Darren always had a smile, a joke or a witty comeback. Darren always maintained high morale and helped keep up the troop’s esprit de corps, which will be sorely missed in his absence.
