I heard so much of my uncle past, brent holloway, and my grandmother always told me how great a deputy he was and how he impacted the society on his services in the teller county. I never met him, but how I longed to know his life, knowing he wasn't afraid to face the devil, and not a stranger to everyone in teller county.. especially by his family. I love you Uncle Brent, and my dad, Brian and my grandma, Linda.. misses you and loves you.

I just watched this case on the TV series "Joe Kenda: Homicide Hunter" and it was heartbreaking. The only solace I can find is that the cowardly, evil and murderous thug can never hurt another person. I salute you, Deputy Holloway, for your bravery, service and ultimate sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, co-workers, first responders and every person that lived this nightmare. Please remember that Deputy Holloway will NEVER be forgotten and will FOREVER be a hero!

Brent was my friend in high school. He dated my best friend Kelly. He was a big goof ball who enjoyed life. He was also an amazing artist and a great hunter. A couple mornings before his death I called out to talk with Kelly and got him on the phone. We chatted a while and he actually shot a squirrel out the back door while we talked. Never dreamed it would be my last conversation. Kelly is back in Ohio now with all of us, but the memory of our friend will always leave an empty spot in our hearts.

To Deputy Holloway's Family and Family in brotherhood:

My deepest condolences. I feel an especial guilt because I was a friend of Adam's at the time. I had spoken to him the night before, I even entrusted him with my children numerous times (at the time toddlers). I knew something was wrong, but had no clue, I just thought he was depressed again. I tried to get him to talk...If only I had known. I'm not sure what compelled me to google Deputy Holloway for the very first time in all of these years, but I did. I was both elated and mortified that Homicide Hunter was going to honor Deputy Holloway in a manner befitting an officer. My father had been a police officer in LA, I admire and respect our law enforcement more than most. I've for decades lived with the guilt of knowing I attended a small private service for Adam, particularly because it was at Rampart Reservoir.

I don't know how to apologize for knowing this man. It's been a burden on my heart for 22 years, perhaps that's why it haunted me this morning. I often think of what I could have done, I asked him that night if he wanted to come to my home to talk. I told our friend Matt (who's red car he stole) he sounded weird. I Had no clue. I was told at some point he had been incarcerated but was told it was a minor offense.

I'm so very sorry. I wish I had done more, I was worried he may have been suicidal, not a clue he would have ever hurt someone else, certainly nothing so diabolical.

Again, deepest condolences to all of Teller County Sheriff Deputy Brent Andrew Holloway's friends and family. I'm sorry for being his friend and not knowing him.

Wow my cousin. So hard to believe that it has been almost 17 years!! I know you moved off from Ohio to Colorado and we didn't get to see each other much anymore. But knowing that I will never see you again this side of Heaven sure does suck!! I've seen and enjoyed very thoroughly some of your painting. Saw some that your Mom had and found some that Gam had. Made sure your Mom got that one too. Gam and Gramps have passed, as I am sure you know. Well, love ya now and always.....

Thanks for being a good neighborr up here in Divide and showing me and Yance your prime bowhuntining spots down by Phantom Creek. I remember that morining you took us out bow hunting and we were on the ELK. Didn't get one but it was fun. I still go back to the "treestand" Sorry we never got to build that awesome Garage with pool table room above we designed. '
I'm still good friends with our mutual buddies Kellogg and Wyatt. Still the same old farts. Glad I saw this website 17 years later you are still loved and remembered.

I recall like yesterday the night I heard of your death. I wasn't on duty but I was the following nights when we looked for the coward who took your life. Those nights will never leave my memory. I think of your sacrifice often and of your family. Rest in Peace.

I remember when I first became a LE explorer with Teller County Sheriff's Office, I remember looking at your picture hanging in the lobby at the Sheriff's Office. Every time I go in there now, I smile knowing what you did for the citizens of Teller County. I can't remember the exact year but our honor guard stood tall and proud to honor you. RIP our brother!

Growing up neither one of us spent much time talking about a law enforcement career. Yet we both ended up on the job. Your loss is one of many that hurt so bad. Your death, and those of my training officer and beat partner, kept me vigilant. In the end I survived my day of days, and managed to restore enough mobility to keep moving on after my medical retirement. You are missed and you upheld our family honor. With love your cousin Bill

Deputy Holloway - I know the one who switched assignments with you that day. He knows how fortunate he is to be alive, and how sad it is that you were taken from us.

Three weeks ago, on a very rainy morning, I stood in the State Assembly chambers when your name was one of almost 250 read off during a motion regarding next month's Police Memorial Week. You are not forgotten.

Thank you for you service to the people of Teller County and the state of Colorado. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.

Deputy Holloway,

Thank you, sir, for your service, dedication and sacrifice. This world is a better place because of the lagacy of courage / bravery that you have left... but oh how I and so many others wish Oct 16th 1995 had never happened. Every day, every single day men and women of law enforcement go forth to serve and protect even when off "shift" ... because they are NEVER off "duty." Every day each officer does not know if that will be their last day on this earth, yet, they venture forth. Thank God for you, and your brothers & sisters in law enforcement.

As others have stated, you will never be forgotten.

"Come walk your beat on heaven's street.... you've done your time in hell".

I was only 14 years old when you were taken. I recently learned about you in a class I attended for police officers. As we talked about you and learned about what happened to you, there was barely a dry eye in the house.

I am not much for words but I feel your loss like a ton of bricks. The reason I am writing is beacuse of the impact you had on me, and the sorrow I feel for your loved ones.

Never will a day go by that I don't think about you both in my daily life and on patrol.

Rest in peace my brother, you will never be forgotten.
