Mr. Cornelius Polk, a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend to all, transitioned from this earthy life on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014.
Mr. Cornelius Polk, also known as "CP," was born on Jan. 3, 1932, to the proud parents of Jim and Julia (Shannon) Polk. He was the oldest of five siblings.
Cornelius confessed Christ at an early age. He was a fun-loving man; if asked a question, he would oftentimes answer back in a joking manner. He also had a serious side, though. He said what he meant and he meant what he said.
