Grover Cleveland Holloman, Jr affectionately called “Couchie” by his family, was born on May 31, 1951, in Norfolk, Virginia to the late Grover C. Holloman, Sr. and Edna L. Holloman.  Grover took his eternal place of rest with the Lord on May 25, 2022.  

 

Grover was the oldest of three children. He spent his formative years and adolescence in Norfolk, Virginia.  Grover was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church under the spiritual leadership of Pastor Hamilton and was baptized by Reverend Sutherland.  He was a member of the Boy Scouts Troup 710 of Shiloh Baptist and, later a member of Troop 98 at Covington Presbyterian Church, where his rank was a Star Scout and a Member of the Order of the Arrow.

Grover attended Stonewall Jackson Elementary School, Jacox Middle School, and Booker T. Washington High School.  After the completion of his 11th grade schooling, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to serve his country. He completed basic training and was named a Marine at 17 years of age.  He honorably served from 1968-1971.  His rank was Private First Class, Infantry Division.  While enlisted, he served two tours consecutively. During his tour in Vietnam, he received the Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, Riffle Marksman Badge, and the Purple Heart, which is among the highest military honors awarded for those who served in wartime, or while in combat.

 

He married Linda Marie Barnes and from this union one child was born, who was proudly named after his father, Grover Cleveland Holloman, III.  

 

Upon re-entry into civilian life, he was gainfully employed by Hall Hodges Metal Plant, in Norfolk, Virginia.  While in Norfolk, he also worked as a long-distance moving truck deliver and as a contractor.  

 

He later relocated to Barco, North Carolina where he cared for family for several years. In 2007, he met the former Shanda Seymore. Grover and Shanda’s love for one another continued to grow and they married on May 22, 2010. 

 

Grover loved and looked forward to attending family reunions every summer and watching old cowboy and John Wayne movies.  His greatest love was for his wife Shanda, his son, Grover, III, his grand boys and his nieces and nephews and of course his Dallas Cowboys.
