Our History

We stand behind our reputation and will continue to provide exceptional service to our community with the values instilled by our forefathers and has been handed down to all of our professional funeral directors and professional caring staff.

In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s our forefathers, Samuel J.R. Holloway and Walter R. Holloway (1899-1983) began serving Wicomico County to provide the best funeral services in the area.  As a cabinet maker, Samuel crafted all necessities for the business., from a horse drawn carriage to the caskets that were provided to families.  As Samuel became older, Walter stepped in to fill the large shoes left by his father.  Often going out all hours of the night to aid families in need, Walter took the reigns in leading the business with the utmost professionalism and care.

Much has changed in recent years not only in our area, but the funeral profession as well.  Walter, along with our father, W. Richard Holloway Sr. (1928-2011) nurtured our family business to our main location on Snow Hill Road in Salisbury.  As the business has grown, our resources have grown as well.  We have eight licensed funeral directors, state of the art care center, and three on site crematories.  In most recent  years, we also expanded to include a location in Pocomoke City, Maryland.

Leading into the fifth generation of Holloway Funeral Home, we have maintained a professional and caring commitment to the families we serve. This commitment is our way of letting you know we're here for you.

Our first priority is to provide the very best courteous, compassionate and quality to every family we serve. Our intent and responsibility is to uphold the very highest level of professionalism, character and integrity. Honesty in all transactions is our benchmark, and we welcome being fairly compared to other funeral homes. We also believe in providing thoughtful and thorough opportunities for families and individuals to plan funerals in advance and consider various options without pressure or obligation.

Funerals are more than observances of passage of life.  They are Celebrations of Life to which every person is entitled.  We also believe every family has the right to choose their own way of celebrating life.  Because of this, we have become the local leaders in providing services that are unique, meaningful, and healing.
