Dwayne D. Holman

March 27, 1956 — June 25, 2022

Beacon, NY

Dwayne D. Holman entered into eternal rest on June 25, 2022 at the age of 66. Dwayne was born on March 27, 1956 in Brooklyn, NY to Wayne Eato and Martha (Grant) Holman. Dwayne was a proud resident of Beacon, NY and was passionate about law enforcement. He worked at the Department of Corrections for fifteen years and later retired from the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office in Pomona, NY.

Dwayne was authentically himself, humble, and loving. His personality was larger than life and he was deeply loved by his family and friends. Dwayne spoke to everyone with kindness and knew everybody. He was thoughtful, selfless, and wanted to better the community. His family jokingly referred to him as the Unofficial Mayor of Beacon.

Dwayne was known to have a witty personality with phrases that were uniquely his own and would always look for ways to make people smile and laugh. For example he would never end a conversation with a simple goodbye instead he would always say “Talk to Ya”. He was a man who had a great appreciation for the finer things in life like a box of Mike and Ike candy, sunflower seeds, ice cream sodas, and old western movies that often watched him fall asleep. Dwayne was a man of routine and structure. He got his haircut every week on Thursday at 11am and played his “numbers” everyday without missing a beat. Most importantly Dwayne was a loving and protective son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend.

Dwayne and his wife Gina “hunny G” were together for 42 years. He also leaves behind his mother Martha; five children Elisa, Michelle, Chanelle, Rashawn with wife Cynthia, Giovanni with husband John; five grandchildren Krystelle, Rashawn Jr., Mariah, Ava, and Eli Victor; three sisters Jackie, Michelle, and Dana; one brother James (Junior); three sister-in-laws Dalinda, Elba, and Darlene; four brother-in-laws Wilberto, Ricardo, Jerome, and Lawrence Sr; one uncle Daryn; and a host of nieces and nephews, all to cherish his memory. Dwayne is preceded by his father Wayne and sister Shawne.
