Obituary for ROY WILLIE HOLLOWAY, SR.

Roy Willie Holloway, Sr., 79, of Sunderland, MD passed away on March 11, 2012. He was the son of the late Willie and Ada Holloway and was born on November 27, 1932 in Calvert County, Maryland. He was baptized at Cooper's United Methodist Church where he accepted our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Roy attended Calvert County Schools and continued his education, becoming certified in the field of masonry. His skills extended into the field of auto mechanics and home building. He was truly a jack-of-all-trades. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, hunting, traveling, motorcycle riding, and restoring classic automobiles. His pride and joy is a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, which he restored with his cousin Dale Curtis. He married Elizabeth L. Wills, daughter of the late Edward and Lola Wills of Sunderland Maryland and from their union they were blessed with six children, twenty-two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Roy was a loving father and a wonderful friend to many. On many occasions he would sing to his children, playing a one note tune-honky-tonk blues on his guitar. His children danced and pranced as he filled the air with joyful noise. He was truly a remarkable father, or as they called him 'DADDY' - a HERO!! Roy leaves to cherish his memories, his wife Elizabeth L. Holloway of Sunderland MD; children Diane D. Holloway and Lynn M. Holloway of Sunderland, MD, Carla D. Holloway-Gross and Gabriel L. Holloway of Lusby, MD, Roy W. Holloway, Jr. of Huntingtown, MD, and Ada H. Holloway of Atlanta, GA; brothers Elmer & James Holloway, and sister, Mildred Stroud of Baltimore, MD; sisters-in-law, Geraldine Sharps, Christine Wills, Madeline Spriggs, Debra Holloway, and Frieda Holloway; brothers in-law, Lee Wills and Richard Sharps; daughter-in-law, Paula 'Trisha' Holloway and son-in-law, Claye 'Roni' Gross; special friends and cousins, George Contee, Jr., Winfield Harvey, Enoch 'Shag' & Barbara Harvey, Dale Curtis, Warren Harvey, John Long Jr., Weldon Randall, Gene 'Jeep' Long, John Contee; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
