Monroe "Billy" Hollifield

Under the Carolina blue skies Sunday afternoon, January 23, 2022, Monroe “Billy” Hollifield went home to be with the Lord. He was born March 14, 1960 in McDowell County to the late “Bill” E. Hollifield Sr. and Edna Marie Ray Hollifield.

He is preceded in death by his brother Pfc. Charles Wayne Hollifield, niece Tonya Marie Edwards and nephew Matthew Evan Edwards.

Monroe was owner/operator of his dump trucks, working exclusively with Carolina Grey Stone. He had worked with late owner Ronnie R. Stevens and currently Ronnies sister Vangie Peek, true friends, for thirty plus years. He ran the excavator, did most of the mechanic work and was the Demolitions man. He very much loved his work.

In Monroes spare time, he enjoyed riding his Harley with his wife and friends. He also enjoyed building motorcycles or helping others to do so. He worked on many motorcycles for others along with 4-wheelers, all forms of lawn equipment and small engines. The neighborhood knew he was the man to call if something didn’t start. He will be missed. He was currently building, from ground up, a “Rat Rod” Chevy Truck, left to him by Ronnie R Stevens. He took great pride in a job well done. He was a Ford man and was proud of his 1970 Fastback Mustang. He was known to have a big heart and always willing to help when needed regardless.

“Live Free Ride Hard” was his motto.

He is survived by his wife, Susan Lynn Hollifield of 19 years, sister Carrie(David)Daniels, sister Debra(Danny)Edwards, sister Geraldene “Jeri”(Mark)Holley, brother Josh Hollifield, niece Denisa Conley, nephew David “Pudge” Daniels, nephew Brian Hollifield, nephew Alan Hollifield, nephew Travis Hollifield, niece Vanna Abernathy, niece Kala Abernathy and many great nieces and nephews with one great-great nephew.

A funeral service will take place on Saturday, January 29th, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. at Beams Funeral Service Chapel with Reverend Gary Greene officiating. The Family will be receiving friends from 2:00-3:00 p.m., one hour prior to service at the funeral home.

No interment to follow.

Susan,
I was so happy to see you found the love of your life and all the joy and pure happiness that showed in your faces. All your pictures showed the love between you two whether you were just eating at a restaurant or parked somewhere on a ride. In many of your selfies you'd capture yourself looking at him with the biggest twinkle in your eye, and there was no mistaking it was mutual. You definitely got the right handyman for you! I know a sadness with try to overcome you, but remember he's still with you and he would want to see you laughing, and smiling, chasing chickens and enjoying the rest of your life. He would rather be with you but you still carry him in your heart, and he'll always be there. I love you girl…Monroe was a great guy, because a great girl should get a great guy, and God made him especially for you.
