ASHLAND — On Monday, July 28, lifelong Ashland resident Perry Jackson “Jack” Hollan, 81, was called to his eternal rest. He passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family.

Born Sept. 12, 1932, to the late Eula Utterback Hollan and Colson C. Hollan, Mr. Hollan was the sixth of nine children. He was class president of the Ashland High School Class of 1950. He had been commissioned into the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels and was also named a Kentucky admiral. During his work career, Mr. Hollan was employed in various occupations, including sales and self-employment in multiple independent businesses. He enjoyed home-improvement projects and was a skilled carpenter. Mr. Hollan loved his family, the art of conversation, politics and the Ashland community. He had a gift for storytelling and he always loved a good joke, especially if he was telling it.

Mr. Hollan is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 62 years, Doris Stephens Hollan of Ashland. He and his wife had four daughters; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Mr. Hollan was very proud of his entire family, and especially of his wife, Doris, who served as the elected Boyd County clerk from 2003 to 2006. Jack was a member of Second Baptist Church.

Also preceding Mr. Hollan in death were his son-in-law, Luther Watson of Mount Juliet, Tenn.; and his brothers, Vincent Hollan, Ralph Hollan, Carl Hollan and Gerald Hollan.

Also surviving are his daughters, Linda (Robert Jr.) Bonstein of Marietta, Ga., Debra Watson of Mount Juliet, Jenny (Ron) Dixon of Wellington, Fla., and Laura (Tim) Turman of Taylors, S.C.; grandchildren Kristen Bonstein (Ryan Dowd) of Boston, Robert Bonstein III of Brooklyn, N.Y., Katie (Michael) Finney of Irvine, Calif., Megan (Elliott) Christ of Brooklyn, Sarah (Jordan) Plumbee of Durham, N.C., Emily Turman of Taylors and Mary Beth Dixon of Wellington; two great-grandchildren, Wayne and Moira Dowd of Boston; four siblings, Wendell Hollan of Lexington, Ruth Genevieve Baker of Ashland, Fred Hollan of Dunedin, Fla., and Charles K. Hollan of Lexington; and many other extended family members.

The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Thursday at Second Baptist Church in Ashland by the Rev. Edward Caudill and the Rev. C.J. Adkins. An interment service will be at Rose Hill Burial Park Mausoleum in Ashland.

Obituary for James H. Payne IV
James Hamilton Payne IV, 73, of Ashland, passed away peacefully on July 23, 2014, at King’s Daughters Medical Center after a sudden illness.
Mr. Payne was born in Ashland on October 15, 1940, to the late Eunice Dean Payne Sargent and James Hamilton Payne III. He was preceded in death by a stepfather, Frank J Sargent of Ashland; his favorite aunt and uncles Christine Meek Field and Wynn Field, and Luther Meek, of Catlettsburg; and a sister-in-law Judith Hunt Murphy of Knoxville, TN.
Mr. Payne, affectionately known as “Ham” to all who loved him, was the beloved husband of Teresa Hunt Payne for 41 years. He is also survived by his only child, Angela Payne Harrison and her husband, Edwin R. Harrison, of Ashland; a brother, David “Dirk” Payne of Ashland; mother and father-in law Pauline and Thomas R. Hunt, of Catlettsburg; a sister-in-law, Tomi Jean Hunt of Catlettsburg; nephews Jason and Josh Murphy; and the true lights of his life, his grandsons, Edwin James “EJ” Harrison and Bentley Hunter Harrison, at home.
Mr. Payne graduated from Ashland High School, as well as Eastern Kentucky University’s Department of Criminal Justice Training program for law enforcement officers. He held many jobs throughout his life, including lead insurance agent at the former Meek Insurance Agency in Catlettsburg, where he was Past President of the Catlettsburg Rotary Club. He retired as Assistant Police Chief after a long career with the City of Catlettsburg Police Department. He was a member of the Ashland FOP Lodge #3, and the Ashland Moose Lodge.
Ham believed in living life to the fullest every day, and that he did. He enjoyed being outdoors, automobiles, and sports, especially watching UK and Louisville basketball and the Cincinnati Reds. But most important to him was travelling and spending time with his family, especially his two boys. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him, to whom he brought such joy.
A memorial service celebrating Ham’s life will be held on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at 1:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Ashland. Pastor Steve Harris will officiate. In lieu of flowers, the family requests giving to the charity of your choice in Ham’s memory. Miller Funeral Home in Ashland is in charge of arrangements.

07/09/14 - The Lexington Lunch Bunch enjoyed getting together recently at the Olive Garden near the Fayette Mall. They talked as fast as they could to get caught up on all the news since they had not been together for several months! (Thanks to Kay Moore Hart for providing the picture.)
07/08/14 - David and Judy Parsley Patton recently talked to David Dixon in South Dakota. He was thrilled to hear from them and would love to hear from other classmates. If you would like to call David, his number is 605/693-2237. (Don't forget the time change when placing your call.)
07/16/14 - Judy Franklin Lear called David Dixon and has provided the following information re her call:
Talked with David today. The number is not his. There are a lot of prompts to get to an operator. He said they come to his door and knock after which he comes to the phone (he said it was not a problem). The connection was not great because I was talking on my cell as I was driving (blue tooth). Next time I will call from home. He remembered that I sent pictures and had them on the wall. Only a brief wait to get him to the phone and he was so glad that I called.
06/11/14 - The Ashland Lunch Bunch will eat at the Bellefonte Country Club (Jim Powers' guests) at 11:30 AM on Tuesday, July 8, Tuesday, August 12, and Tuesday, September 9. ~ Jim Powers
