Joseph enjoyed life and loved his family. He enjoyed spending time with his children and teaching them the ways of life. He spent his time playing his guitar and loved riding his Harley. Being a dad was his favorite thing.

He was preceded in death by his son Talan Hollan; and his grandparents Jacob Hollan, Eli and Lydia Nofire and James and Pauline Morris.
He is survived by a loving family which includes his children Xzavior Ray Thompson of Garnett, KS, Tristen Michael Hollan of Topeka, KS and Maura Christine Hollan of Topeka, KS; his parents Carlene and Matt Morris of Overbrook, KS
and Larry and Angie Hollan of Stilwell, OK; his brother Joshua Wayne Hollan of Topeka, KS; his sister Chelsea Marie Morris of Overbrook, KS; his Grammy Barbara Hollan of Stilwell, OK; and his niece Avaya Lynn Britschge of

The Morris and Hollan family wish to thank the Topeka police and emergency service.
In lieu of flowers a memorial may be given to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital on behalf of Joseph R. Hollan.
I had only known Joe for a little over 3 months, but he had a huge impact on my life. We enjoyed each others company and friendship. He loved to talk and I loved listening and hearing what he had to say. We spent hours together and in a very short time, I got to know him very well. It seems so surreal that he was here...and now he's gone. Although our friendship was brief, I will never forget him. I'm thankful that I got to know him as well as I did.
Miss Carlene, if you see this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to talk to you.
Goodbye buddy. I'm fortunate to have known you. I miss you every day.

Xzavior, My heart is so sad you are having to go through this heartache. There are no magic words to make your pain go away, unfortunately it is something you have to work though on your own. There is no timeframe. Be sure and lean on your mom who will always be there for you, family, friends & most of all the God we talked about. ((HUGS)) Sue
