John A. Hollis
John A. Hollis, 67, a resident of Homer for the past 63 years, died Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer following an extended illness.
John was born Aug. 23, 1946 in Seattle, Wash. His family moved to Homer in 1950, and he graduated from Homer High School in 1964. He later attended business college in Washington State. John was a heavy equipment operator and truck driver throughout most of his life. He was also employed by the City of Homer as Harbormaster.
The family wrote, “John was a gentle soul who was loved by so many. He was always willing to lend a hand to help someone in need, expecting nothing in return. He loved Homer and never wanted to live anywhere else. John was extremely giving, sometimes even to his detriment. He will be missed.”
John was preceded in death by his parents, Frank Earl and Dorothy (Richmond) Hollis and niece, Sandra Scroggs.
He is survived by his son, Lawrence Hollis of Eagle Mountain, Utah; sister, Dorene Hollis Miller of Wagoner, Okla.; brother, William Hollis of Guam; ex-wives, Deni Charron and Charlene Wilkins, both of Homer.
