HOLLIDAY, Ralph Heller "Jacky"
     Ralph Heller "Jacky" Holliday passed away peacefully on May 27, 2018, at his home in Brunswick, Ga.
 
He was born on Jan. 5, 1942, in Anderson, S.C., to parents Ralph Hall Holliday and Eunice Heller Holliday. He called Brunswick home from the age of 12, and never had a desire to live anywhere else.
 
     He is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Dorothy Madray, for the past 52 years; two daughters, Beverly Price (Jack Jr.) and Christie Holliday; two grandsons, Ricky Cason and Jack Price III, of Brunswick; a sister, Patti Jordan, of St. Simons Island, Ga.; and a niece, Holly Jordan, of New York City.
 
“Jacky,” as he was known to his many friends in the Golden Isles, fellow students at Glynn Academy and South Georgia State College, proudly served his country in the U.S. Army and Georgia National Guard. With good looks, a quick wit and something of a mechanical genius, he enjoyed passing his knowledge down to his two grandsons. Jacky had friends from all walks of life. A gentleman in every respect, a hard worker, he kept his own counsel, revered honesty and fair play and was deeply spiritual.
 
     He was a successful businessman as owner of Holliday Trucking Co., which was instrumental in building many roads, causeways and golf courses in the Southeast. Even though he was always busy with his company, he found time to enjoy fishing in the local waters, cooking, particularly smoking chickens on his grill, and his garden. Jacky was generous, sharing the bounty of his garden with friends and family. Every year, a box or two of delicious tomatoes were carefully wrapped and shipped, and sent to his sister, in New York City. Stray animals always found safety and a home. Upon retirement, he used his intellect to study the stock market, and enjoyed trading favored stocks.
 
     The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at Chapman Funeral Chapel, with a graveside service at 3 p.m. Friday, Oglethorpe Memorial Gardens, 5775 Frederica Road, St. Simons Island.
 
     In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, in Brunswick, or a charity of your choice.
 
The family is deeply grateful for the care and emotional support offered by Heartland Hospice.
 
Prayers of comfort for the family would be gratefully received. Jacky will be deeply missed.

She was a great woman, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

She was renowned for her hugs, being a wonderful listener, a knack for telling it like it is and for helping people. She always told you the truth even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear. With that said she was genuine to a fault, wore her heart on her sleeve and yet she sugar coated nothing. These words of encouragement, wisdom, and sometimes comfort, kept us in line, taught us the "school of hard knocks" and gave us something to pass down to our children and comforted many a friend. Everyone always knew where they stood with her. She believed in forgiveness and second chances. She loved doing random acts of kindness. She loved to cook and bake for people – she was the happiest when her house was full of family and friends. She loved the holidays and Christmas was her favorite time of the year. She enjoyed volunteering with special needs children during their horseback rides. She hugged over 850 people a month while volunteering at a food bank for two years. She enjoyed her church family at Emanuel United Methodist Church. She was very active in the church as a Sunday school teacher, a preparer of meals for church events and she was “that person” that sat with someone that was by themselves at church...and of course, she hugged everyone.  She was a proud descendent of the Mi’kmaq Nation. Telling history of hiding her heritage because being “Indian” was not accepted when she was younger. She was very happy when her heritage was accepted late in her life and she became “Silver Rain” in her tribal registry.
     She was prepared a “Welcome Home Party” in Glory by her husband, (Glen R. Herbert), her parents (Irving and DelimaCampbell), her brothers (Francis and Kenneth Campbell) and many dear friends. She leaves behind a son, Kenneth R. Herbert, his wife (Audrey) and their two sons, (Daniel and Timothy) and a daughter, Janet N. Carswell, her husband (Mike) and their two sons (Jacob married to Kayla) and (Chris). She also leaves behind a step Granddaughter (Jennifer) and her family. 
Nancy leaves her legacy of love, hugs and giving in the hearts of her extended family and friends. All whom loved her dearly and will never forget her tenacity, wit, charm, grace, faith and undying love and caring for them.
