Funeral arrangements for Woodfin's Chief of Police Emeritus have been announced.

Former Chief Brett Holloman died just after midnight on Saturday after a battle with leukemia. He had retired from the department in July for medical reasons.

According to Groce Funeral Home's website, Holloman's funeral service with honors will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday at Brookstone Church, 90 Griffee Road, Weaverville, with Pastors Mark Chase and David Honeycutt officiating.

The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday at Brookstone Church.

Woodfin Police Department said in a Facebook post that Holloman had a career spanning over 26 years, with 12 of those in the role as chief.

“Anyway he could help the community, anyway he could help individuals that came in here, that's what it was all about,” Woodfin Mayor Jerry Vehaun said of Holloman.

Holloman is credited with earning Woodfin the ranking of one of the safest cities in North Carolina for the last two years, thanks to his community policing efforts.
