William Osce "Bill" Holloway, resident of 112 Meadowbrook Drive, husband of Suzy Bruner Holloway, died September 11, 2012 at Hospice House.
Born in Greenwood, October 21, 1937, he was the son of the late William Jordan Holloway and Caroline Peterson Holloway.

In 1971 he began medical practice with Dr. Travis Stevenson as a general/peripheral vascular surgeon. In a short while he limited his practice exclusively to Vascular Surgery.
