Ronald “Wolf” Wayne Holley
Waynesboro, GA – Ronald "Wolf" Wayne Holley, 58, loving husband of 11 years to Mary Poseskie Holley, entered into rest Monday afternoon, May 13, 2013 at Georgia Health Sciences Medical Center. A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11:00AM on Saturday, May 18, 2013 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Dr. Tim Brown officiating.
One of three children born to Ruby Thompson Holley and the late Jimmie Holley Jr., Ron was raised in the Wrens area, graduated from Wrens High School, and was a member of Mt. Horeb Baptist Church. He became a certified welder and mechanic and was a member of Local 278 Millwright Union. Ron was a hunter, fisherman and collector—coins, guns, tools, and memorabilia—and loved going to auctions, flea markets, yard sales and dumpster diving to find hidden treasures and bargains. He enjoyed watching Pawn Stars, Cajun Pawn, Storage Wars, Wild Tuna, Duck Dynasty and The Moonshiners—reality TV that encompassed all the things he enjoyed. A rebel by nature, his free spirit felt most comfortable while riding his Harley. All of his life, Ron “pushed the limit”—mischief found him or he found mischief—and followed the beat of a different drum. There were no bounds to his generosity and kind heartedness or to his love for his family who he always put first. His death leaves us a heartache no one can heal; but his love leaves us memories no one can steal.
Ronald is also preceded in death by his brother, Charles Jimmie Holley. Other survivors include his children, Erica Holley, Brandon Holley (Crystal), Shannon Miller Pryor (Bryan), SSG Chris Miller (Katlyn) and Sherry Lynn Miller (Alan Jones); his sister, Brenda Holley Butler (Joe); eight grandchildren, Brooklyn Holley, Zaiden Holley, Autumn Pryor, Aurora Pryor, Amber Pryor, Cameron Linton, Xander Miller and “Baby Girl Amelia” Jones; nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, a host of cousins, and many friends.
The family will receive friends after the services on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at James Funeral Home.
I’d like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
Of smiles when life is done.
I’ld like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and summer days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
