Herbert “Herbie” H. Holliman, Jr. passed away peacefully on February 23, 2023 at St. Francis Medical Center. He was born on July 28, 1962 to Herbert and Mildred (Boyett) Holliman. Everybody loved Herbie “Coach”. Even if they didn’t agree with him, they respected him as a coach and as a person. 
Even though he had many health problems, he never complained or used them as excuses, but instead always persevered. He lived life to the fullest in spite of them. He was a dedicated coach who always gave 100% plus to whatever team he was coaching. He was one of the most knowledgeable persons on football, basketball, and baseball and just about any sport. It ran in his blood, along with his love for the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!).
He loved fishing; it was his time to relax and have fun.
Herbie was preceded in death by:
his father: Herbert Holliman, Sr.
his mother: Mildred Boyett Holliman.
sister: Pat Holliman.
He will be missed greatly by his family as well as friends and all teachers and coaches he worked with at various schools.

Memorials may be made to Fair Park Baptist Church, American Lung Association, American Heart Association or West Ouachita Football team.
