A.C. Holloman Jr.

HARRELLSVILLE, NC – Aubra Clifton “A.C.” Holloman, Jr., age 94, went to his heavenly father on September 22, 2015, at his home.

Mr. Holloman was born in Hertford County on August 3, 1921, a son of the late Aubra C. Holloman, Sr. and Elsie Mae Wynn Holloman.  He was an active member of Colerain Baptist Church which he loved and served his lifetime.

A.C. tilled and harvested from the soil all his life.  Although of small stature, he was excellent at baseball and basketball.  Mr. Holloman knew every creek on the Chowan River where he fished and every path and woods in the county where he hunted.  He had already purchased shotgun shells for the upcoming deer season.  Sunday afternoon he took his wife, “Gerry”, for a Bojangles date.  Monday, he got medicines, groceries, and mowed the yard.  He loved and lived life to the very end…”we love you daddy, and we’ll see you when we see you”.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 75 years, Geraldine Miller Holloman; his daughters, Audrey H. Lassiter and husband, Jim of Raleigh, NC, and Sandra H.  Holloman and husband, Joe of Harrellsville, NC; a sister, Jean H. Dilday of Ahoskie, NC; two grandsons, Jim Lassiter and wife, Susan, and Dean Lassiter and wife, Adrian of Wilmington, NC; and great grandchildren, Noah Lassiter, Evan Lassiter, AnnaGrey Lassiter, Julia Lassiter, and Smith Lassiter.

The family will receive friends on Friday, September 25, 2015, from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm at Garrett Sykes Funeral Service of Ahoskie, NC, and other times at the family home on Evans Town Road in Harrellsville.

A service to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015, at 11:00 am at the Colerain Baptist Church, 202 N. Main St., Colerain, NC, with Rev. Gary Saffell, officiating. Burial will follow in Highland Memorial Gardens, Ahoskie.
