Bobby was born on February 10, 1935 in Bryan and graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in Bryan. Bobby was an outstanding athlete, lettering in Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Track. He received the Lions Club Lineman of the Year Award his senior year at SFA and earned a scholarship in baseball at Texas A&M. During his freshman year Bobby decided to try out for football as a lineman. He became the starting quarterback for the freshman team and wound up beating the University of Texas. When Bobby was told he had to give up baseball to play football, Bobby transferred to Sam Houston State Teachers College in Huntsville on a baseball scholarship. After receiving his Bachelor's Degree he taught and coached at Allen Academy in Bryan.
Bobby later owned and operated Holliday Oil Company for many years and worked as a commercial and land broker in real estate. He lived in Bryan all of his life and was the devoted husband of Palma Cash Holliday. He was blessed with four children and six grandchildren. He was a lifetime member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Bryan.

Bobby's joy in life was his family, his wife Palma Holliday, his children, daughters Brenda Harris and husband George of Jacksonville, Florida, Pattie Bartosh and husband Josh of Bryan, Jan Holliday of Bryan; his son Bobby Holliday, Jr. and wife Julie of College Station; his six grandchildren Amanda Harris, Matt Shirley, Kyle Shirley, Cole Glidewell, Cameron Holliday, and Benjamin Bartosh; one brother, Wayne Holliday and his wife Charlotte of Bryan; numerous nieces and nephews; and all of his friends.

He was preceded in death by his precious wife Palma on May 16, 2008; his mother, Earlene Patranella; father, Leonard Holliday; stepfather John Patranella; brother, Billy Earl Holliday; and sister, Dorothy Zouzalik.

The family would like to thank Joyce Martin and Rita Rodriquez for the loving care they provided for their dad during the last days of his life. He loved them, and so do we.
