Biography* STATE SEN. RICHARD J. HOLLAND DIES AT 74
April 17, 2000, Richmond Times-Dispatch
Page: B-1

Richard Joyner Holland, a longtime state senator, small-town banker and member of a prominent Southside Democratic family, died early Sunday at his home in Windsor, family members said. He was 74.
.
Mr. Holland was elected to the Virginia Senate in 1979 after defeating
incumbent J. Lewis Rawls Jr. in a Democratic primary. He was serving his sixth term when he died.
.
Mr. Holland, D-Isle of Wight, had been in declining health during the past year. His successful fall re-election campaign against Republican T.C. "Tommy" Wright Jr. got off to a late start because he was being treated for cancer.
.
He also missed a hefty portion of the 2000 General Assembly because of a bile-duct infection that he said at the time probably was related to his cancer battle, but not a recurrence. And earlier in 1999, he broke a hip and ankle in an accident.
.
But Mr. Holland - looking gaunt and frail - was on hand for the closing days of the session and was greeted with a standing ovation from his colleagues.
.
Sen. Henry L. Marsh III, D-Richmond said, "This last re- election, when he was overcoming illness and other problems, he showed so much fight and determination, he was amazing."
.
A special election will be held to choose a successor to Mr. Holland.
.
Mr. Holland was a member of a prominent Southside political family and followed his father, the late Del. Shirley Holland, to the General Assembly. His brother, Clarence A. Holland, a Virginia Beach Democrat, also served in the state Senate. The two were desk mates until Clarence Holland's defeat in 1995.
.
A conservative Democrat, Mr. Holland nonetheless was an outspoken critic of Allen and Gilmore administration tax cuts that, he said, wrongly stripped local governments - especially in poorer rural districts such of his - of much-needed income. He was unsparing in his opposition to efforts to eliminate the business-licensing tax as well as the car tax.
.
His career was singed by controversy, most notably federal bank- fraud charges, but the case against Holland and his son Richard J. Holland Jr. was thrown out by a judge who ordered the federal government to pay most of the Hollands' legal fees.
.
The case grew out of a 1991 dispute between the Hollands and the FDIC over banking practices. FDIC officials became convinced that the Hollands, through Farmers Bank in Windsor, were making illegal loans in 1991 to a Suffolk developer who was trying unsuccessfully to prop up a faltering investment in which the bank had a financial stake. At one point, the matter appeared to have been settled through an administrative action in which the senior Holland agreed to reduce his role in the bank.
.
But the FDIC later referred the case to federal prosecutors, who devoted four years and two grand juries to it and finally produced 31 felony charges against the Hollands, including bank fraud, making false statements to the FDIC and perjury. U.S. District Judge Henry C. Morgan Jr. heard the government's case in 1998 and promptly dismissed it, calling it utterly lacking in evidence.
.
Mr. Holland was chairman of the board of Farmers Bank, which he joined in 1951. As a result, his interests in the legislature often focused on financial and business matters. His committee assignments reflected this. He had been chairman of the powerful Rules Committee and served on the budget-writing Finance Committee as well as the Labor and Commerce Committee.
.
With a booming voice and a swinging gait, Mr. Holland was hard to miss at a political event, such as the Wakefield Shad Planking, a legendary get-together in a piney wood on the fringe of his district.
.
This year's planking is set for Wednesday, the same day the General Assembly reconvenes for a day to consider overriding the governor's vetoes or amendments to bills passed during the 2000 session.
.
Del. William K. Barlow, a Smithfield Democrat whose district overlapped Mr. Holland's, said the two used to ride together to various events, and he always found Mr. Holland a generous and caring colleague.

"He certainly was a very friendly person," Barlow recalled. "He was a
small-town banker, and people usually come in and ask small- town bankers for advice on all sorts of things, financial and personal. And he gave people that kind of advice. He had a real concern for people and their lives."
.
Even as one of the most powerful Democrats in the state, Mr. Holland made friends easily on the other side of the aisle. Former Gov. George Allen, a Republican who as governor targeted Mr. Holland for defeat in 1995, called him "a principled leader who fought hard for the residents of his district even when his physical health became a challenge. He went about this battle as he did many others, with his typical courage, dignity and class. He'll be greatly missed in the Senate and by those of us who were privileged
to call him a friend."
.
A native of Windsor, Mr. Holland graduated from Windsor High School in the early 1940s. He was a graduate of the University of Virginia and attended the U.Va. School of Law. He graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers University in the early 1960s. He also attended Virginia Military Institute and Harvard University. He served in the Navy during World War II in the South Pacific.
.
He was a former member of the board of visitors of Radford College, past president of Virginia Bankers Association, and served as a member of the Windsor Town Council for 22 years. Mr. Holland was a former member of the board of trustees of Elon College, past president of the Old Dominion Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, and at the time of his death was serving on the boards of directors of both Smithfield Foods, Inc. and Jobs for Virginia Graduates. In addition, he also was serving on the Board of Trustees of the Virginia War Memorial Foundation and was chairman of the Jamestown- Yorktown
Foundation.
.
His wife of 49 years, Jean Marks Culpepper Holland, died in August 1997.
.
Survivors include a daughter, Shirley H. Wright of Chesapeake; two sons, Richard J. Holland Jr. of Windsor and Gregory F. Holland of Richmond; and two brothers, Dr. Clarence Holland of Virginia Beach and Dr. William E. Holland of Richmond.
.
A funeral will be held Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Windsor High School. Burial will follow in Windsor Cemetery.
