Hollis was born on March 1, 1993 in Zachary, LA and was a graduate of Zachary High School (2011) where he was salutatorian, prom king, and lettered in both football and baseball. After graduating high school, he attended Louisiana State University for nursing prerequisites and transferred to Our Lady of the Lake to complete his Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. After graduation, he went on to serve in hospitals across Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas.
Hollis met Maggie, his wife, while in nursing school and greatly adored her which was obvious for all to see. He had an infectious smile and was always a source of positivity. Those who knew him loved him deeply. In addition to his family, Hollis absolutely loved LSU sports, golf, his friends, and co-workers. Hollis will be deeply missed by all of those fortunate to be in his presence. Please make memorial donations to (Specifically for the Hematology Oncology Department)
