A picture of Charles Holloway III

Charles K. Holloway III ’66, December 2, 2006, in North Bend, Oregon, when his small plane went down into the ocean. Chuck received a BA from Reed in philosophy. He earned an MD from Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, in 1970. In 1971, he married Barbara Gabert, a classmate at Southwestern. The couple trained as emergency room physicians and worked in Watsonville, California. During that time, they build a 40-foot trimaran, and set sail in it with their two-month old son, in 1979. They circumnavigated for three years before returning to medical practice in Abilene, Texas. In 1987, they settled permanently in Coos Bay, Oregon. Chuck continued his medical career in the emergency department of Bay Area Hospital, later as a family practitioner at North Bend Medical Center, and finally as a public health physician for Coos County. Outside of work, he maintained his interest in sailing and built an RV-6 airplane, having earned his pilot license at 16. He also played the flute, and wrote poetry and screenplays. Survivors include his wife, son, mother, and sister.
