He is preceded in death by his parents, Walt and Liller Holland; three brothers, Wallace, Forest and Clyde Holland and his sister, Dorthy Holland Jarrett. His step daughter, Kathy C. Wallace of Wetumka, AL passed in January of this year. Huey was born to James Walter and Liller Mae Holland at the family homestead on Gadsden Highway on a crisp November day in 1933. He was baptized at the New Hope Baptist Church which is now the First Baptist Church of Saks. He attended the First Baptist Church of Oxford. Huey attended Alexandria High School and received his diploma from Anniston High School. Huey enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1952; was trained on the Lockheed P-2V Neptune maritime patrol aircraft and served at Naval Air Station Barbers Point, Hawaii. After serving his country, Huey joined Alabama Water Pipe Corporation as a crane operator and retired with 20 years of service. His second career was working in the Anniston Depot Ordnance Division from 1978 until retiring in December 1996. Huey Holland adored his wife and family and treasured the time he spent with them. To say he was a University of Alabama fan would be understatement; Huey loved everything about Crimson Tide football. His spirit will be missed by the Crimson Tide faithful.
