In Memory of Frederick A. Holm

Fred, Don's dad, passed away August 27, 2013. He spent the past four years in assisted living or nursing home care. He was very gracious about this, always saying, "you do the best you can". He never really complained. I am blessed that he was my Father-in-law. I love him and I know he loves me. We will miss you dad, but we know you are in perfect peace and happiness now and for all time in heaven.

 Aren't these kids sweet! Fred is the little guy with his older brothers, Carl and John.

Fred grew up on a farm. The back of this photo indicated a 4H project.

 Fred is in the back with his brothers and their little sister, Ruth.

In 1980 Fred and  Lois marry.

Fred loved to travel. He and Lois traveled all over the USA. Here they are Telluride Colorado--one of Fred's favorite states.

Lois and Fred are with Fred's brother, Carl and his wife, Ione.

A fun memory-here I am with Fred at his home. The roof was filled with ice and snow. Getting up on a ladder, we used an ice pick to hack away at the ice in the gutters.

Fred lived with Lois for the past 17 months at Sunrise Assisted Living. Geralyn, the Life Enrichement Manager sent us a lovely letter about Fred. Click on images for larger view.
