Quavis Holloway Jr., affectionately known as 'Lil Qua" and "Bemo" was born in Statesboro Ga on September 19, 2000 to Cecilia "CeCe" Smith and Quavis Holloway Sr. At Memorial Medical Health University on October 14, 2020 our Lord saw Qua was getting weary on his earthly journey. It was then, He whispered to his child "Job Well Done" and welcomed him into His Kingdom.
Qua attended schools in Metter, Statesboro and Reidsville and was known as one of the most intelligent in his class. He played basketball, baseball, football and loved to smile and make others laugh. He was an Honor Graduate at Tattnall County High school, Class of 2019.
As a teenager, Bemo took a liking to shooting dice and making music. As he had done with everything else in life, he exceeded in both. From city to city, he was known for his 'slick' roll and songs. Special Thanks to Tyler Gordan. Some things were certain in his lifetime, and that was his love for his family, friends and son. He dedicated his life to making sure that all those he came in contact with knew that he loved them. Through his knowledge, wisdom beyond his years and a smile that would brighten up any room, he was well-loved and respected across multiple cities.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Quinton Holloway.
