Theodore Walter Holloway

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.38.08 AMb. February 21, 1925 – d. July 1, 2014

Theodore Walter Holloway was born in Willowbrook, Saskatchewan to Henry Charles Holloway and Edna Mae Hudson Holloway. He died at his home, a house he designed and built on Oak Avenue in Davis.

Ted was a member of “The Greatest Generation” and a commissioned Pilot Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1951, he and his young family immigrated to California and settled in Davis where he worked for 32 years for the Southern Pacific Railroad, first as a master telegrapher and later as Station Agent. Ted met Mary Delparte in Toronto, Ontario on a double-date in 1946 and they wed shortly thereafter. Ted and Mary had four children (Allan, Kenneth, Mary Lou, and Lee Ann) and they were married for 40 years until Mary’s death.

Ted and Mary were members of the Davis Community Church, the Davis Dance Club, and a local Bridge group. Ted enjoyed playing the piano, ping-pong, pool, cards, swimming, fishing, camping and -most of all- travelling by sea, land, and air. He toured many of the major cities of the world and visited every continent.

When Ted remarried, he and his wife Pat (Smeltzer) continued to cruise and travel extensively. From the time he began working at the Davis Depot, Ted rode his bicycle to work every day, rain or shine. He also liked bicycling to the Farmer’s Market and around Davis. He was a good citizen and baseball fan who helped build the Davis Little League East Field and watched Giants games at Seal Stadium, Candlestick, and AT&T Park.

Theodore was a soft-spoken gentleman with a keen interest in geography and science. He possessed a joyous -often irreverent- sense of humor, many friends, and a loving family. He lived to be 89 and is survived by 4 children, 11 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and his sister, Lorraine Nickelson of Cambridge, Ontario. Grandpa Ted will be deeply missed by all.

Theodore’s family thanks the Threshold Choir of Davis for the comfort they provided their beloved father in the last days of his life. He was buried at the Davis Cemetery in a private service on July 7, 2014.
