In Celebration of

Ken Holder

June 18, 1939 -  August 10, 2020

It is with sadness that we, the family of Ken Holder, announce his passing on Monday, August 10th at the age of 81. Ken is the beloved husband of Susan for 57 wonderful years. The loving father of Mark, Dan (Helen), Scott (Christine) and Matthew (Kelly). Proud Grampa of Bailey, Mary, Abigail, Madison, Ella and Kenna. He will be missed by his brothers and sisters Steve (Marilyn), Randall (Sylvia), David, Karen (Lloyd Barter) and Nanci (Doug White).

Ken relished life and took every opportunity to enjoy it to its fullest. Sports were big in the Holder family and Ken spent lots of time not only playing, coaching and umpiring but sitting on the sidelines cheering on his 4 boys. He and Susan traveled as much as they could and ventured to places such as Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean. Although he enjoyed all of these things nothing compared to his love and devotion to his family. His legacy will live forever.

A service will be announced at a later date.

For those who wish memorial donations can be made to the Salvation Army, a charity that was dear to Ken.
