Mr. Bertram Leonard Holloway, age 55, of Port Wentworth, Ga., passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, February 15, 2021.
He was a Bulloch County native but resided in Chatham County. He was born to Grace D. Safford and the late Archie T. Holloway on July 25, 1965, in Statesboro, Georgia.
He grew up in Statesboro and was educated in the Bulloch County public school system. He was a 1983 graduate of Statesboro High School. He was a hard worker and mastered everything he put his mind to.
He worked for ITT Grinnell Corporation for 15 years. He later moved to Hardeeville, S.C., where he was general manager for Shoney's restaurant for several years. He went on to work many years for Jaguar Land Rover. His final position was as mechanical lead technician for the City of Savannah, where he remained until his passing.
He was a loving husband, father and son. To know him was to love him. The only thing he loved as much as his family was his race car and his love for street racing.
He was known for going in and getting the job done and doing it quickly. His reputation will be remembered for many years to come.
He was joined in holy matrimony to Kathey Steele-Holloway on October 6, 2017.
He was preceded in death by his father, Archie T. Holloway; and his brother, Rodney W. Holloway.
