It is with great sadness that we let you know of the passing of our father, Prof. John S. Holladay Jr. He was a remarkable father, brother, grandfather, academic, teacher and scholar and will be missed terribly by all who knew him.
Please join Jack’s family in a Celebration of his Life on Monday September 26th at 11:00 a.m. at Kingston Road United Church, 975 Kingston Road, Toronto. Refreshments and a time of visitation will follow the service. Please join us for either or both parts of this celebration.
Karen Holladay, B.Sc., Dip.C.S.

If you have any photos with you would like to share with the celebration of his life, or would like posted in the SSEA Newsletter or website, please send them to

Dr. John S. “Jack” Holladay was a long-time Trustee of the SSEA, a professor emeritus at the University of Toronto and the director of excavations at Gezer in Israel and Tell-Maskhuta in the Delta.

In 2012, the Society had a session of papers in the Scholars’ Colloquium dedicated to him.  This photo shows him on stage with the weekend speakers:
