  5. For the last eight years I had the privilege of working with Will at the Menards on east Broad St in Columbus, Oh. Will always brought a smile to my face with every interaction. His way of taking a situation that may have been less than ideal and simplifying, breaking it down with such ease into a more manageable state; it was truly a thing of pure beauty.

    His smile, his laughter and his unapologetic honesty always made my day better. He will be missed on a level that’s impossible to describe. He may not have even known how crucial he was. I will cherish the time I got to spend with him always.

    Godspeed Mr. Holloway and RIP

    I offer my deepest sympathy and condolences to all his family members and friends.

  6. Forever in our hearts. Love from Gloria,Shahara,Terrence and Joseph

  7. I also had the privilege of working under Will at Menard’s on Broad St as he was my manager in the Receiving Department. Everyone knew, when Will was working, we all were working.

    RIP Will, you will be missed.

    Hey, I’m so sorry. And I know sorry doesn’t make this feel any better, this hurts like hell. I absolutely love Will. I was so excited for him to propose to my mom. I had to be the first to know, and I was. He came home and showed me the ring and then took us to Olive Garden. And did it there. I had the biggest freaking smile on my face. And I know their divorced now, but, even then he’s still here, he’s still my dad. I would always buy him the better Father’s Day cards. He would play with us, and he made this chicken that fell off the bone with this homemade sauce, omg it was the best. And taught me how to drive. I’d like to think I’m great thanks to him! Though I don’t have my car anymore. Will was always proud of me, and I believe I was his favorite haha. But he was always happy, especially about my plans. He says I like that about you Monissa, you always have a plan.
    He always sticks his fist up and goes Wait! Or Noooo! Lol I’m going to miss his laugh so much. Cause he be over here and or on the phone cracking up. I miss him so much. And it’s hard to even imagine him gone. I had stuff to tell him, to catch him up on.. I knew I was going to call. I had said swepsi the night before because he called Pepsi swepsi because it sweeps you off your feet lol. I guess lol. I drink water, but my child’s father wanted a pop. I said Swepsi it is.
    Ugh. I can’t make it to the funeral, but I will be attending the Virtual! I wish I could hug him one more time. I wish I could tell him I love him just one more time. But I talk to him through prayers. And though it hurts like hell to know he’s gone. He’s forever in my heart. He made such a big impact on my life. And he’s always there. I’m so sorry, for your loss. God, and I’d like to think my Papa are taking good care of him. I’m sure others are too. And he’s up there cackling by now.
    I love Will. And I thank him for everything! God, with every fiber in my being let him rest peacefully.

  20. I worked with Will for a brief 2 years and can honestly say he made a lasting impact in my life. He will be dearly missed by so many and there are not words to express the void left behind. I’m hoping for peace to all that knew him in this time of immense grieving.

  21. Trest, I am so sorry for your loss, although I never met your son manie, your niece Cynthia told me so many stories about her time growing up with him that I felt like I knew him personally and grew to care about him (which shows how powerful of a person he truly was) my thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family

  22. My condolences & prayers goes out to the family & Trest for your loss. I truly know how you feel.

  23. My condolences go out to the family, praying you all find the strength to get through these hard times. I can’t say I know how it feels to lose a child no matter how old. I will be keeping you all in my prayers.

  24. Man, I don’t know what to say right now. We (Ken, Jarvis, Marquette, and I) we was a little click when we were younger . I would never think that I would receive a call from anyone saying someone from our click was gone. Whenever you came to Mississippi I always made sure that I got a chance to see you and Jarvis. Cousin this one got me in mixed feelings right here because I always felt that we (the click) would get together again and reminisce about the stupid funny things that we used to do. I love you cousin and I am sorry that we both waited too late. To hear your mom telling me that you wanted to see me hurts tremendously because I feel as if I failed you and I am sorry love you cuz
