Corey Pollard Obituary

The lens of Corey Desmond Pollard, 47 years of age, closed on Monday, January 8, 2024, in Brookdale Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Corey’s light began shining on November 13, 1976, in Camden, South Carolina, to Patricia Pollard and the late Leroy Hudson. 

He was educated in Kershaw County Schools and was a 1995 graduate of  Camden High School. After graduation, Corey attended Midlands Technical College before following the bright lights and moving to NY to attend Long Island University. Corey focused on his education and with God’s help, he received his Degree in Respiratory Therapy from York Technical Institute. Corey worked as a patient transporter at South Shore University Hospital for many years before becoming a Licensed Respiratory Therapist at Wyckoff Hospital.  He also worked at Bedford Center Nursing and Rehabilitation. 

Corey was exposed to God at an early age at Mt. Bethel Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Freddie Thomas. His vision never changed. Corey loved the Lord! He was a faithful member of Hope City Church East NY Campus in Brooklyn, New York, under the leadership of Dr. Tyrone Stevenson. He loved working in the church and singing for the glory of God.
Corey’s self-portrait included singing, photography, and capturing the special moments in people’s lives. He loved spending quality time with family, especially Jaylen. Corey loved laughing and using his mirrored prism to reflect onto others and make them feel special. He was a loving, caring person, and a devoted father, son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend. He was always thinking of others first. To know Corey was to love Corey.
Corey was preceded in death by his father, Leroy Hudson. 

Corey leaves to cherish his memory: his mother, Patricia Pollard; son, Jaylen Anderson of Bay Shore, NY; two sisters, Donna Hudson of Arlington, TX, and Tiffany Pollard of Charlotte, NY; two nephews, Pierre Moore of Arlington, TX, and Isaiah Wright of Charlotte, NC; several grandnieces and grandnephews; aunts, Jessie (Charles) Lloyd of Rembert, SC, Margie (Grant) Beaufort, Earnestine Dubose, Mary Pollard, Elaine (Frank) Pollard, and Delphine Moses, all of Camden, SC, Isabel Lawhorn of Blythewood, SC, Lovinia Mckeever of Elgin, SC, and Cynthia Cornish of Jacksonville, FL; uncles, William (Bernice) Pollard of East Orange, NJ, Richard (Barbara) Pollard of Hillside, NJ, and John (Diane) Pollard of of Camden, SC; cousins and friends; goddaughter, Jassamine Beaufort; special cousins, Shawana Beaufort and Felicia Dubose; and fur baby, Baxter Leigh Pollard and a host of other relatives who are there welcoming him into his new Heavenly Studio.
