BOONEVILLE - Jarrod Lee Holloway (48) passed away Saturday April 13, 2019 as the result of a plane crash. He was born in Aurora, Illinois, on November 17, 1970, to Nell and Earl Holloway. He grew up in McKinney, Texas. He graduated from Freed-Hardeman University. Jarrod was a deacon at the Booneville Church of Christ, where he was actively involved with his church family, especially the youth. He went on missionary trips to Honduras; Guyana, South America; and Nicaragua. Early on, he worked construction for his father's company, where he even worked on Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He was a self-employed business owner and a pilot. On September 1, 1995, Jarrod married Sonya Green Holloway, and their life became one big adventure since he loved to fly and travel. Jarrod was a jack of all trades: scuba diver, pilot, carpenter, electrician, Boy Scout leader, mechanic, machinist, ham radio operator, life guard, marksman and much more. He loved the outdoors and camping, mud riding and swimming his pond with his children and their friends, but his most favorite things to do were reading and eating. Jarrod loved his family and family get-togethers. He was a people person. His favorite saying was "Things don't matter; people do." He spent much of his life with people, especially his lunch buddies, who shared his love for food and fellowship. Memorial services will be 4 pm Tuesday April 16, 2019, at Booneville Church of Christ with Ministers Greg Pollock and Jim Estes officiating. Visitation will be 1 pm until service time at 4 pm at the church. He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Sonya, his daughter, Sandra and son, Lewis of the home; his father, Earl Holloway; three brothers, Stuart Holloway (Marilyn), David Holloway (Kathy) and Kent Holloway, all of McKinney, TX; his sister-in-laws, Melanie Swinney (Todd) of Wheeler and Lawanna Cobb (Tory) of Booneville; his nieces and nephews, Steven, Emily and Michael Holloway; Carter, Cole and Levi Swinney; and Jackson and Brady Cobb.
