Holyoke Soldiers’ Home trustees will reopen the search for a new superintendent to lead the facility that was devastated by the coronavirus in the spring of 2020 after their first choice confirmed that he will not take the job.

Trustees in April selected Rick Holloway, administrator of the Idaho State Veterans Home in Boise, to lead the Massachusetts center but on Tuesday he told Masslive.com he will not make the move because of family concerns.

The chair of the trustees said the panel will resume their search. At least 77 residents of the home died after contracting the coronavirus, most last spring.
