Born on July 3, 1921 outside Thrift, Texas, Kenneth Holloway was the first of three children born to Jack and Mary Holloway.
He was raised on a small leasehold estate located outside Kiefer where he lived a rugged early life, enduring "The Great Depression" along with his family.
He attended school in Kiefer where he matured into an outstanding athlete, earning his high school letters in the sports of football, track and field and basketball.
From an age when he was old enough to appreciate what the silver birds in the sky were, he gained an appreciation for aviation which blossomed into a lifelong love for flying.
Determined that he too would one day be a pilot, he constantly badgered his parents to take him to airports which were located in the big city of Tulsa.
On many occasions when he couldn't convince his parents to drive him to Tulsa, he was known to slip out of his parent's house after everyone inside was asleep and ride a bicycle from his home in Kiefer to Tulsa just to watch the planes take off and land.
While in high school he found summer employment in California at plants where aircraft were being built and test-flown. Also during this time he attended summer training camps for young men who were interested in serving their country in the armed forces.
It was during these camps that he learned to fly, and he learned to box and became a golden gloves champion boxer.
Upon his graduation from Kiefer High School he attended college in Tahlequah on a full scholarship based on his football abilities as an offensive running back.
He was only one and a half years into his college career when America entered World War II and he determined that he would serve his country as a pilot.
Leaving school he sought entry into the United States Navy where he did become a pilot and saw extensive action in the Pacific Theatre.
He later felt the call a second time and once again served his country during the Korean Conflict of the 1950s. At the conclusion of his service he was honorably discharged as a First Lieutenant.
Returning home after his service to his country he took up residence in Tulsa where things were beginning to boom in the post war, oil-driven economy.
He loved the outdoors and his competitive spirit drove his avid interest in motocycle, speedboat and car racing, where he was a frequent competitor and participant. He also enjoyed fishing, quail and pheasant hunting.
When the movie "Tulsa" premiered, he won the contest for the title of "Mr. Tulsa" and was rewarded with the enviable duty of serving as personal escort for Susan Hayward, one of the stars of the movie, during the parade that was held in downtown Tulsa. During this time he had also gone to work for Sears, Roebuck and Company, and in later years he would chuckle when he told the story of young boys approaching the car in which he and Ms. Hayward rode during the parade, asking for autographs and how they looked in disbelief when he told them that he wasn't a movie star but rather just a fellow who sold washers and dryers for Sears.
In 1954 he met and married the love of his life, Bernice King. The couple settled into the "White City" area of town. When Sears announced that a satellite store would be opened in Sapulpa, he leapt at the chance to manage the operation so that he and his family could live in Sapulpa where his parents, now retired, were residing.
In 1964 he moved his family to Sapulpa where he lived the rest of his life. Always keeping the flame of his love for flying alive, he continued to own and fly a succession of small passenger planes until his hearing loss prevented him from holding a pilot's license.
Mr. Holloway was a third degree Mason and a member of the Kiefer lodge. He was a longtime member of the First Christian Church in Sapulpa and had attended both Sunday school and the regular church service before succumbing to a heart attack on Sunday afternoon.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Mary Holloway and his wife Bernice to whom he lovingly tended during her long, final illness.
He is survived by his son Jack, daughter-in-law Lisa, granddaughters Grace, Samantha and Claire, sister Frances and brother Don.
Funeral services have been set for 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, 2002 in the First Christian Church with the Rev. Russell Casey and the Rev. Gary Sheeley officiating.
Interment will follow in the South Heights Cemetery under the direction of the Smith Funeral Home.
