Obituary for William "Hank" Holloway

William Henry (Hank) Holloway, 70, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2018 in Penrose, Colorado.
He died after a busy Saturday of playing two separate venues, and before falling asleep that night (approximately 11:30 PM), he remarked that it was, "the best day ever."
Hank was born on December 22, 1947 in Canon City, Colorado to James and Clara Jane Holloway. He graduated from Canon City High School in 1966 and attended Ottaway University in Kansas before moving to Omaha, Nebraska. He returned to Canon City in 1976.
His "larger-than-life" persona was evident much earlier than what many in Cañon City, Pueblo, and the rest of Southern Colorado might realize. Family gatherings were close, loving, funny, intimate, sarcastic and genuine with Hank always in the midst (and usually the center) of everything we did.
It is no exaggeration to say that he was like a brother to his double cousins. (Jerry Jones, Judy Jones Lohnes, Joann Weaver)
Our spouses, children, and extended family members were all embraced, blessed and celebrated by his enthusiasm and generosity.
The community fireworks display that he organized for years was simply an outgrowth of his own display birthed in our adjoining yards.
His band "Applewood" (that has existed for over four decades) emerged from his love of rock and roll and his delight in public performances. Plus, it gave him extended time with his beloved cousin Jerry and their mutual appreciation for music, life, humor and family.
His exuberance and skills in radio broadcasting was refined through the years of regaling us all with stories, tall tales, and surprising encounters. Any of our shared "brush with greatness" was typically orchestrated by his efforts.
As one of the founding board members of Orchard of Hope, he allowed the public to sense his compassion and care for loved ones coping with cancer.
We take comfort in his strong Christian beliefs, affirmed through the commitment he had to serve diligently in every capacity from worship leader to praise band member to facility manager.
The significant loss of his passing will have an effect on many arenas of our community and region. We are so appreciative of the thousands of you who shared his journey in diverse ways.
As with all of you, the tapestry of our family is forever enhanced and we will always be grateful for the thrilling, delightful and fond relationship that we had with our Hank.
Hank is survived by his girlfriend, Helen Haddow; previous wives, Linda Whittle, Donna Kilfoyle and Jodie Hatfield; sister-in-law, Sandra Holloway of Halifax, Nova Scotia, nephew, James Allen Holloway of Vermont, niece, Elizabeth Holloway of Quebec and double cousins, Jerry (Sandy) Jones, Joann(Larry) Weaver, Judy(Mike) Lohnes all of Canon City along with numerous cousins.
He is preceded in death by both parents; and brother, James E. Holloway, Jr.
Celebration of life, 2:00 p.m., Thursday July 26, 2018, Evangelical Free Church in Canon City.
