He will forever be remembered by his wife of 52 years, Mary Holder (Pryor), Daughters: Ann Marie Holder and Donna Holder Fletemeyer, Son: Blake Holder, Grandsons: Paxton Holder, Peyton, Hunter and Hayden Fletemeyer, Brother: John Henry Holder, Sisters: Ann (Holder) Savage, her husband, David, and Mona Timbs, and several nieces and nephews.
