Admiral James L. Holloway, III '39 Laid to Rest at Naval Academy

Admiral James L. Holloway, III, Saint James School Class of 1939, was laid to rest on December 18, 2019 at the Naval Academy Cemetery after a full honors military funeral at the Naval Academy Chapel. Father Dunnan presided and gave the homily, the SJS Chapel Choir sang, the SJS sacristans served, and Senior Prefect Will Hertel read from the Epistle of Saint James. Wrestling teams from Saint James and the Naval Academy were in attendance, as well as many SJS administrators and trustees.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday and Naval Academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Sean Buck spoke at the service, and retired Adm. Bobby Inman, who served with Adm. Holloway on the SJS Board of Trustees, offered personal reminiscences.

The Naval Academy Honor Guard led a procession from the chapel to the cemetery, where Adm. Holloway received a 19-gun salute and a flyover by F-18 jets in a missing man formation. A flag was presented to Mrs. Dabney R. Holloway, Adm. Holloway's wife of 77 years, as well as his daughters, Jane Holloway and Lucy Lyon, and grandson Graham Eynon-Holloway.

May he rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him.
