Bobby Holloway, Jr.

One of Pine Island’s finest young men, Bobby Holloway Jr., lost his life in a hunting accident in 1997 at the age of eleven.

Like many youngsters, Bobby loved sports and the outdoors, especially boating and fishing. Also, he was a very thoughtful and considerate boy, always showing a genuine concern for the welfare of his friends and teammates. To remember Bob through a fishing tournament fundraiser that would benefit the local youth seemed a natural fit.

Largely through the efforts of Bobby’s mother, Ernestine Holloway Squires, and family friend Joe Marzella, the first Bobby Holloway Jr. Memorial Tournament was held in March 1997 at Pineland Marina. The response from local businesses, fishermen, and benefactors in the community was overwhelming. The thousands raised then inspired continuing efforts to help the children of Pine Island in the future.

This annual tournament is now a tremendously popular Spring event, drawing sponsorship and participants from throughout the area, and greatly increasing fund-raising. The Bobby Fund is now able to provide enrichment for virtually every local youth activity in education, sports, the arts, and more- from learning to swim to earning a college degree.
