Pollack is seen here as a child in 1972 with his older sister, Sara, transporting the first boat he built at age 6. Six years later, Sara Pollack was killed while on a trek in the Himalayas during a family trip when the pony she was riding slipped while fording a river. "I'm probably a lot more serious a person because of it, just because I recognized the fragility of life," Pollack said. "And how bad things can happen." (Courtesy The Pollack Family)
