Times Leader, Martins Ferry, Ohio, dated, August 28, 2006

Ernest "Tom" Hollansworth Jr., 62, of Powhatan Point, Ohio, went to be with the Lord on August 26, 2006, following a short illness.

He was born August 24, 1944 in Dunlow, W.Va., a son of the late Ernest and Vada (Adkins) Hollandsworth, Sr.

Tom was retired from P.P.G. Industries in Cleveland, Ohio; he was employed for over 10 years at North American Coal Company (No. 5 and 7 Mines). He was currently employed at HLC Trucking Company in Dilles Bottom, Ohio. He was a Mason in the Moriah Lodge No. 105 F & AM Powhatan Point, Ohio. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy; and was a Methodist by faith.

He was preceded in death, in addition to his parents, by father-in-law and mother-in- law, Joseph and Jessie (Saffell) Bednar; a beloved brother-in- law, Noah Damron; two sisters Bernice Maynard and Susan Hollandsworth; and three brothers, Grady, Douglas and Leslie Maynard.

Surviving are his wife of 33 years, Sonja (Bednar) Hollandsworth; two daughters, a grandson, and was awaiting the arrival of two more grandchildren; two sisters, and three brothers. Tom enjoyed history, traveling, fishing and NASCAR; but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family. He will be very sadly missed by his family and friends and will always be remembered as a devoted husband, father and grandfather.

Family and friends will be received Tuesday, 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., at the Bauknecht- Altmeyer Funeral Homes and Crematory, 186 Main Street, Powhatan Point, Ohio, where funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, with Monsignor Gene W. Mullett officiating.
