Holloman, John David "Dave"

John David “Dave” Holloman, 79, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, February 18, 2018.

He was born in San Antonio, Texas on February 05, 1939 and was raised in Dallas, the son of Clyde and Betty Holloman. Dave was a lifelong resident of the Carrollton/Farmers Branch area.

Dave had many hobbies including Amateur Radio and was licensed as an Extra Class Operator and supported the local radio club until his health no longer allowed it. He loved the many activities, conventions, and most of all the camaraderie of his fellow hams including his Uncle Ben. Dave also enjoyed driving the trails with other Jeep enthusiasts.

He leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Vicki Holloman; his son, Jason; daughter, Shari; and grandson, Colton; as well as many other close friends and family.

As my closest friend for 48 years, I struggle to find the words to say goodbye.
If you knew Dave, the odds are good that you knew me. Thanks so much for the kind words and thoughts.
Yes, Ed, I do remember that night, and our conversations when we met. It is kind of you to comment on that. Those were great times.
Dave never had an unkind word to say about anyone. Dave was a believer, and I know that all of our mutual friends and family that have passed before us, undoubtedly have greeted him. If I remember them as I most certainly do, they are already planning their next adventure.
Instead of saying goodbye, I look on this period of life as a pause, or a semicolon, till we meet again.
Save me a chair, and tell our friends Hey!As my closest friend for 48 years, I struggle to find the words to say goodbye.

Very sad to hear of Dave's passing. Rest in peace, Dave.
I recall the night I heard Dave and Scott on the CB, back in 1995. My father was in failing health at that time and I was driving back and forth a lot from Farmers Branch over to the Lake Highlands area tending to him, and the traffic on LBJ was terrible, so I put a CB in my car just to check on traffic. One night I heard Dave identify as "Captain Radio" and I came back and identified myself as "Captain Video". Scott may remember this. I chatted with them for a few minutes that night, and Dave said I should get my ham license, so I did, the next week! The next time I talked to them I proclaimed my new ham license thanks to hearing Dave and Scott talking on the CB that night.

N5NL-WB5MQZ 73 OM! This is KK5WT signing off.
