To Ruby and all the family;
We had lots of good times together with Ruby & Hollis in the many years since we met them when they moved to Appleton. From a Caribbean cruise to a ski resort in Corner Brook to cabin trips ... we’ve done it all... had lots of fun and lots of good laughs!! Hollis will surely be missed by our circle of friends and he will most definitely be remembered with lots of love, fondness and respect!! There will always be a story to tell for sure!! The weekly card games with the guys will never be the same without Hollis but no mistaking he will always be there in spirit!! Hollis Thompson you were surely be missed by all that knew you!! RIP Hollis!! Kevin & Kitty Freake Appleton

I have very fond memories of Hollis when I used to hang around with Darren during our Air Atlantic Days. Especially our trip we did to Hopedale fishing one year, we had so much fun and shared so many laughs in that little cabin for a few nights.
RIP Hollis, thanks for the memories.
