Obituary of Allison (Holly) Earle Holly Fawcett
It is with great sadness that the family of Allison Earle Holly Fawcett “Holly” announces his passing on November 12, 2022, surrounded by his family. Holly was born on January 9, 1945, to the late Gladys (nee Foster) and Herbert Fawcett.
Holly was a proud “Westsider” but had lived in Grand Bay-Westfield for over 50 years; he was also a member of the Sheet Metal Workers, Local 437. Throughout his life he devoted his spare time to his family, sports and activities his children participated in, and his community. Holly was proud to have served as a volunteer on the Grand Bay Fire Department for many years. Holly was a huge fan of the Montreal Canadiens and the New England Patriots, and enjoyed fishing and boating. He was well known as the family storyteller and could easily hold the interest of an entire room for hours with his fascinating tales.
Holly is survived by his wife Melody Hamm; children Grant (Cathy) Fawcett, Krista Mawhinney, Kate (Rob) Francis, and Jeremy (Amanda) Hamm; beloved grandchildren Jack, Ella, Ethan, Anna, Lily, and Brody; his brother Richard (Dianne) Fawcett; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, and special feline companion “Kitty”.
Along with his parents, Holly is predeceased by his infant sister Heather, infant grandson Alexander, and several aunts and uncles.
The family sends a special thank you to the Extramural nurses and therapists, the many first-responders who brought comfort and assistance to Holly and his family, and the Grand Bay Guardian Pharmacy for all their help over the years.
