The Holliday family extends heartfelt gratitude to the community for all of the prayers offered on Greg’s behalf. He served Dallas with distinction and with love.

UPDATE: May 17, 2014 @ 1:00pm
Shortly after 10am this morning, Game Wardens with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, utilizing a boat and sonar equipment, located the body of a man matching the description of Greg Holliday submerged in the creek near the Preston Trails Golf Club.
The body was clad in a black shirt and tan pants. Although indications are that this is likely the body of Greg Holliday, we will have to wait for the Dallas County Medical Examiner to make positive identification and determine the cause of death.
Over the course of this week we had a number of people and various agencies that assisted in the search and we want to thank everyone involved including Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept., Mark 9 Search Team and Dallas Fire Rescue.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Holliday family during this very difficult time.
