Obituary for Charles Tracy Holloway

Charles Tracy Holloway (85) of Cookeville, TN, passed away on September 17, 2023 in his home
surrounded by his family.

Known as Chuck or Chucky, he was born on March 13, 1938 in Duncan’s Chapel Community and was a gifted musician with the smoothest voice who shared the gospel through music for many years. In his later life, he cherished family moments, played bass guitar at church, and cared for his friends.

Chuck is survived by his children: Laura Burchfield; Gyla and Sam Weiss; Tracey and Dale Karthauser; Derek and Lindsay Holloway; his grandchildren: Nathan Burchfield, Jessica North, Eric Schmitt, Jenell Schmitt, Heather Blasi, and Morgan Holloway, and great-grandchildren Sydney, Christian, Jude, Uriah, Zion, Jordan, and Anna.

Chuck was proceeded in death by his parents: Vallie and Charlie Holloway and siblings: Lavada, Earl, Pearl, Dee, and Bobby.

Chuck was a passionate advocate for Christ’s love and known for his infectious personality, smile, and laughter that brightened every room. He inherited his kindness from his mother and his great sense of humor from his father. Despite his health challenges he maintained his humor, especially with his family. He had a great ability to make others smile and his sense of humor will be greatly missed.

Special thank you to those who visited Chuck and to John and Thelma Yates, Lora Loftis, and Patsy Hedgecough for caring for him in his last days and supporting us.
