Obituary for Bob C. Holder

On Christmas Day there was a huge celebration in Heaven—the birth of our Lord and Savior and the Eternal birth of Bob C. Holder, 92, of Midwest City, Oklahoma. Bob was born on October 9, 1926 in Drumright, Oklahoma to Thomas Edward and Nellie Grace Holder. He married his loving wife of 70 years, Doris Jeanne Barnett, in 1948 after serving in the Army Air Corps and graduating from Central State College. He continued a life of service by influencing young people as a high school teacher and “Coach”, a name he was proud to be called, starting in Comanche, then on to Okemah, Moore, and Midwest City. An avid sports enthusiast, he loved watching the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma City Thunder, but his biggest passion was golf, playing regularly up to his final days. His proudest accomplishment was his family—his three daughters, Rennae Pickert and husband, Steve, Vicki Johnston and fiancé Louis Kaleel, Jamie Walker and husband Allen, 7 adoring grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and sister and brother-in-law, Oretta and Oliver Holderread of Cushing, Oklahoma. A funeral service will be held to celebrate Bob’s life at 2 PM Saturday, December 29 at First Baptist Church in Midwest City with interment to follow at Arlington Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorials to be made in his honor to the Trinity Baptist Church India Mission Work, P.O. Box 719, Wellston, Oklahoma or www.trinitywellston.com.
