When the Blizzard of 1958 swept into Maryland, leaving many roads impassable, Mr. Holloway went to "great lengths to get the paper delivered," his daughter said.

"He later got back copies to give to his customers, and it took him two weeks to get caught up," she said.

When his work was completed Sunday afternoons, Mr. Holloway would take a nap while his family cleaned out the station wagon so "we could use the car for recreational purposes," his daughter said.

During the week, Mr. Holloway and his station wagon called at the Seventh District Elementary School and later Hereford High School when he picked up his daughter from school.

"Several friends usually piled in, sitting on bundles of newspapers and helping him deliver the rest of the day's papers as he drove all of them home," said Ms. Holmes.

She said because everyone in the community knew her father, that she and her brother had to be on their best behavior in school, and if not, he soon learned about it.

"Our antics reached his ears quickly — sometimes on the same day — and were sure to be topics at the dinner table," said Ms. Holmes laughing.

Mr. Holloway retired in 1993.

Despite his long hours and demanding schedule, Mr. Holloway found time to coach Little League and helped establish a Boy Scout troop.

Mr. Holloway spent his entire life in the Maryland Line-Freeland-Parkton area of Baltimore County. He was an active member of American Legion Post 0256 in Parkton, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7012 in New Freedom, Pa.

His wife of 53 years died in 1996.

Mr. Holloway was an Orioles fan and enjoyed going to the movies.

He had been a member of Maryland Line United Methodist Church.

A memorial service for Mr. Holloway will be held at 4 p.m. July 27 at Bethel Presbyterian Church, 4135 Norrisville Road, White Hall.

In addition to his daughter, Mr. Holloway is survived by his wife of 15 years, the former Charlotte Snow; a brother, John Holloway of Timonium; a sister, Ruth Schuman of New Freedom, Pa.; a stepson, Allen Cornett of Maryland; five grandsons; and 13 great-grandchildren. His son, Thomas Holloway, died in 1979.
