Harry Paulson Pond Sr. passed away August 29, 2017 at 88 years of age. Harry was born in Faribault, MN on April 2, 1929. He attended the University of Houston where he met the love of this life, Carolyn Harris. They were married June 12, 1949.

Harry was the divisional sales manager of Sears & Roebuck when he left the store after 29 years. He became a life and health insurance agent until he retired to his much loved home overlooking Matagorda Bay in Port O’Connor, TX. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved being out in his boat catching trout and redfish in the bays. Harry loved people and never met a stranger.

He leaves behind his wife of 68 years, Carolyn Harris Pond, his sons Harry Jr (wife Marilyn), Ritchey (wife Nancy), Randy and daughter Roxanne Miller (husband Robert). Also one brother, John David Dodd (wife Betty) and one sister Terri Story, brother-in-law Wayne Sheppard, two granddaughters, Ashley Williams and Erin Williams, one grandson, Joel Pond and four great granddaughters, Courtney Pond, Sarah Pond, Avery Pond, Lacey Pond and two great grandsons, Connor Smith, and Preston Pond as well as numerous nieces nephews and extended family and dear friends.

Preceding him in death is his beloved sister, Angel Shepherd.

Harry appreciated God’s creation and loved spending time outside with his family. He shared the Bible’s promise of a future resurrection to a paradise earth. He had confidence in Jesus words at John 5:28,29 when he said, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”

A Memorial Service was held on September 9th at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 700 West Fairgrounds Rd, Rosenberg, TX.
