Matthew Jonathan Holloway

Age 41, passed away on February 28, 2011 after a courageous eleven month battle with cancer. He was the son of Jack and Sue McLaughlin Holloway of Wilmington. Matt was a graduate of Salesianum School, the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a degree in electrical engineering, and the University of Delaware, where he earned an MBA. He was employed for ten years at Battaglia Electric in Wilmington, and later worked for Bogan Electric in Essington, PA. For the past five and a half years he was employed by Furness Electric in Wilmington.

He enjoyed trips with his family to the beaches of the Outer Banks and Lewes, and ski trips to Vermont and Maryland. Trips to Hershey Park were annual events. He truly exemplified love of family.
