Ronald Holloway

Ronald L. Holloway, a Plymouth resident since 1963, passed away at 11:25 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, at his Klinger Street home, following an illness.

At the age of 87, until his health would not allow, he continued to have a daily presence as the owner and operator, along with his two sons, of Holloway Electric Motor Services in Rochester. He maintained the attitude of "not going to retire" after 52 years of continued service to the area of rebuilding electric motors.

Ronald Leo Holloway was born on May 14, 1925, in Burkett, the son of Charles Jasper and Zella Bernice (Slife) Holloway. An area resident most of his life, he graduated from Plymouth's Lincoln High School in 1943. He completed course study in 1944 with the Coyne Electrical School in Chicago.

In 1948, he entered the United States Navy and served for nearly 30 years and retired as an E5 on Dec. 17, 1978. For many years, Ron taught electric classes every Tuesday at the South Bend Naval Academy.

In November of 1952, Ron took as his bride the former Helen J. Hudson. She preceded him in death on May 12, 2008.

He had attended the First United Methodist Church in Plymouth. Ron was a member of the Plymouth Moose Lodge and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Marshall County Post 1162. He enjoyed working on his own cars, watching TV and trips to the casino.

Ron is survived by his two sons; Thomas "Tom" Holloway, of Rochester, and Dennis Holloway, of Myers Lake in Plymouth. A friend, Steve Alderfer, made his home with Ron and assisted in his care. A brother, Lowell T. (Ann) Holloway, of Apache Junction, Ariz., also survives.

Services are at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, in the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, Plymouth, with visitation beginning there at 11 a.m. until time of services.

Burial will follow in the New Oakhill Cemetery, in Plymouth, with military honors provided by members of the Plymouth American Legion Post 27, V.F.W. Post 1162 and the D.A.V.

Preferred memorial gifts are to Hope Hospice of Fulton County.

Notes of condolence may be sent to the family through the website,

Ron and I were good friends and business associates since I came to Rochester in 1960. He was a good man, honest and true, skilled in his trade. He had a dry sense of humor, a sharp mind. I will miss visiting him next summer. I drive his pretty blue EL Cameo every day here in Florida. Goodby my friend, and God bless your family.
