Born and raised on a traveling carnival, Cyrus E. (Cy) Holliday is a retired Army officer living in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. On the carnival, he traveled throughout the United States and Canada and has visited all fifty states and six of the Canadian Provinces. In the Army and later as a defense contractor, he traveled throughout the world, visiting more than thirty countries on six continents. A holder of multiple college degrees, he attributes most of his life’s learning experiences to his upbringing in the carnival and amusement park businesses. His father taught him that no matter what you do in life, you’re going to have to get along with all kinds of people. As he said, “In this business, every day you deal with the town mayor, and the town drunk, and everybody in between, and you have to learn to deal with each of them on their level.” Cy married Deborah J. Holliday in 1983; the couple has one son, Cyrus Robert Holliday, born in 1995.
