Johnny (J.P.) Polk

May 23, 1939 — November 24, 2022

West Columbia

Johnny Paul Polk, (J.P.), was born May 23, 1939, to William Guy Polk and Jesse Sennie (Landers) in Bedias, Texas. Johnny went to meet the Lord on Thursday, November 24, 2022.

J.P. graduated from Columbia High School with a special “class of 1957.” He pipelined for several years until the United States Army wanted him. After serving time in the Army, he joined Ironworkers Local No.135 and worked for Rald Industry as a supervisor welder, and because of his health, he retired early.

J.P. loved watching football. If he wasn’t watching football, you would find him at Sargent or Surfside Beach fishing or any place he could wet a hook. One thing J.P. did not like crowds, and he did not have much to say, but when he did, you listened. He loved Texas History and reading or talking about Brazoria County history.

J.P. was preceded in death by his parents William Guy and Jesse Sennie Polk, daughter Renae Kay, brothers Tommy Joe (wife Doris), Otis Polke (wife Shirley), and sister Patsy Newman, and brother-in-law Charles Clayton.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years Barbara Polk, daughter Regena Slone (Thom), sister Jenell Clayton of The Woodlands, brother-in-law Herman Newman of Lake Jackson, five sisters-in-law Sara (Grothe) Field, Annette (Grothe) Cook, Judy Janson (Leslie), Robbie Lindenblatt (Marty), Sandy (Grothe) Grigsby (Terry brother-in-law), and Rueben Jr. Grothe (Chris), and many, many loved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The family will welcome friends and loved ones from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. Thursday morning prior to the services.

Funeral services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 1, 2022, in the chapel of C.T. Baker & Sons Funeral Homes, in West Columbia. Interment will follow Cedar Lawn Haven of Rest Cemetery.

The family would like to say a special thanks to all of J.P.’s Doctors and Dr. Amin and his staff.
