William (Bill) Holloway, 92, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021, at Guest Home Estates, in Garnett. He was born May 14, 1928 in Washington, Kan., the son of Milton and Elta (McCulley) Holloway. 

He married Betty Garrison and had two daughters, Denise and Gail. During those years, he dairied, farmed, had limousin cattle and later worked as a surge dairy repairman. When family came to town to visit, they also always came out to the farm. It holds many special memories for the family. Bill and Betty divorced and he moved to Louisiana where he started a new chapter of his life. 

Bill was always an adventurer and a bit of a rebel. As a child he had his own trap line, taking his furs on a bus to the city to sell them. He joined the Navy at an early age, hopped freight cars and broke horses. He hiked in Colorado with his nephews and took them hunting and fishing. He also went fishing in Cancun and Canada, camped in the desert, gardened, grew muscadine and made both wine and fabulous walking sticks.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Elta and Milton Holloway; daughter, Gail Holloway; sisters, Elta Mae Holloway and Annabel Meyers; and brother, Milt Holloway. 

He leaves behind his oldest daughter, Denise Smith and her husband Paul; sister, Ruth Colburn and husband Kenny; two brothers, Steve Holloway and wife Adelina; brother, David Holloway and wife Debra; and many dear and loving nieces and nephews. 

Thank you to Good Shepherd Hospice for their care, and a special thank you to the Guest Home staff for their loving attention; they have become friends and family.

Cremation is planned and no services are set at this time.
