He loved to travel and he always enjoyed a good card game. He was an honest and fair gentleman who loved everyone and would do what he could for anyone in need.  He had a knack for fixing and repairing just about anything and was happy when you offered him the next project.  He liked keeping busy and all enjoyed the beautiful sound of him whistling his favorite tune while he worked, played or just being around the house, you knew he was content when you heard him whistle.  He loved animals of any kind.  In the past, he raised anything from cows, to rabbits, goats and even raised a pig that his eight-year-old grandson, Codie caught in a greased pig contest.   He loved his family, he was a terrific husband in every way and a great father and grandfather and will be dearly missed.  He is predeceased by his parents, Lynn Hollenbeck and Anna Johnson, brother, George Hollenbeck and a sister, Virginia Piatt.
