Full military honors will be presented by the United States Air Force.</p><p><br></p><p>Scott Marshall Holloway entered the world on May 30, 1962, in Fort Dodge, Iowa, to Arthur and Dorothy (Vote) Holloway. Raised in Fort Dodge, he excelled at athletics, particularly wrestling, during his time at Fort Dodge Saint Edmond Catholic High School. Upon graduating, he embarked on a career in the United States Air Force, where he rose through the ranks to retire as a Lieutenant Colonel.</p><p><br></p><p>In July of 1995, Scott was united in marriage to Veronica Mathisen and the couple have been blessed with two children, Lucas Holloway, and Cassandra Shriver.</p><p><br></p><p>Lieutenant Colonel Scott Holloway was the Security and Communications Maintenance Manager for the 133rd Test Squadron, Iowa Air National Guard, Fort Dodge, Iowa. He also served as the Vice­Commander. He ensured that the highest level of test support was provided to Air Combat Command (ACC) for Command and Control (C2) development and sustainment. The 133rd is the only C2 Test Squadron in the Air National Guard.</p><p><br></p><p>Lieutenant Colonel Scott Holloway began his military career in the United States Air Force in 1981 receiving his first "stripes" from Lackland Air Force Base Basic Military Training as an Honor Graduate. After 7 years of enlisted service, he received his commission to 2nd Lieutenant from the Academy of Military Science, Knoxville, Tennessee as a Distinguished Graduate in 1988. In 1991, he joined the Iowa Air National Guard as a full-time Federal Technician and served as the unit's Security and Communications Maintenance Manager. As the unit began conversion to a Test Squadron in 2000, Lt. Col. Holloway started the fledgling Test Section and became the unit's first Director of Test and Evaluation where he faithfully served until 2009 when he resumed his role as the unit's Security and Communications Maintenance Manager.</p><p><br></p><p>Lieutenant Colonel Scott Holloway received extensive education, numerous assignments, and had a decorated career earning many awards and promotions throughout his career. A detailed log of them is captured at the conclusion of his tribute.</p><p><br></p><p>Outside of his career, Scott was a devoted family man. Though he often presented himself as a tough guy, he was actually a teddy bear with a big heart. He adored his grandkids, and his family can still hear him laughing and talking about how Arthur would become a linebacker someday. Scott had a playful side and loved joking around with others. He was a passionate alumnus and a diehard fan of Iowa State's football and other athletic teams. Skilled in craftsmanship, he took great pleasure in maintaining his property and working in his shop, especially with his faithful DeWalt tools. He dedicated much of his time to caring for the horses. Despite his initial reluctance to have indoor pets, he cherished their dogs deeply. Above all, Scott treasured the moments shared and memories made with his loved ones and friends, enjoying activities like traveling to Florida, soaking up the sunshine, taking long drives, and listening to Blake Shelton.</p><p><br></p><p>Scott’s family meant everything to him, and he will be deeply missed by his wife, Veronica; children, Lucas Holloway, and Cassandra (Colin) Shriver; grandchildren, Dean, Arthur, and baby boy Shriver expected later this year; mother, Dorothy Holloway; siblings, Jeffrey (Jeanette) Holloway, and Robin (Les) Haggard; and many other extended family members and close friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Arthur Holloway.</p><p><br></p><p>Condolences and memories of Scott can be shared with his family in the tributes section of his memorial page.</p><p><br></p><p>Lieutenant Colonel Scott Holloway, thank you for your honorable and faithful service to our country in the United States Air Force.</p><p><br></p><p><br></p><p><b>Complete History of Lieutenant Colonel Scott Holloway service in the United States Air Force</b><br></p><p><b><br></b></p><p><b>EDUCATION:</b></p><p>1981 Honor Graduate, Air Force Basic Military Training, Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas</p><p>1981 Surveillance Operator Training, Keesler AFB, Biloxi, Mississippi</p><p>1984 Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Finance, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa</p><p>1988 Honor Graduate, Academy of Military Science, McGee Tyson AB, Knoxville, Tennessee</p><p>1989 Distinguished Graduate, Comm.
