Lynne Howard Holt, age 67, of Aurora, MO, and formerly of El Dorado Springs, MO, passed away at his home on Friday morning, November 9, 2018. Lynne was born June 1, 1951, in Nevada, MO, the son of Wiley Howard Holt and Alma Jean (Pugh) Holt. Lynne graduated from El Dorado Springs High School in 1969. He joined the Marines and fought in the Vietnam War shortly after. He spent most of his years at Key Industries until they closed. He then went on to be a Truck Driver with Prime for several years.
Lynne married Linda Sue Hamilton on July 5, 1975 in El Dorado Springs. They were married 42 years before Linda’s passing earlier this year. To their union two children were born. Nearing the end of their teenage years, they chose to adopt two youngsters and completed the family.
Lynne enjoyed hunting, fishing, and coaching baseball in his younger years. As time went on, he thoroughly enjoyed riding his motorcycle. He liked to sit on his porch people watching and feeding the overweight squirrels. He would keep up on the Aurora Happenings through the police scanner. Lynne was never wrong about anything except one time and he admitted it.
Preceding Lynne in death was his wife, Linda; his parents and a foster son that was dear to him, Magnum Phillips in 2015.
Survivors include his four children: Susan Hoftiezer and husband Eric of Aurora, MO; Justin Holt and wife Melissa of Aurora, MO; Robbie Holt of Aurora, MO; and Taryn Russell and husband Jeremy of Hollister, MO; grandchildren: Alexis, Emily and Grace Hoftiezer, Megan, Dylan and Brendan Holt, and Aliya Holt; and four siblings: Larry Holt of Boonville, MO, Linda Kay Lockhart of Shawnee, OK, and Judy Fowler and Jeanie Baldwin of El Dorado Springs, MO.
Graveside Services for Lynne Holt were held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. at the Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora, MO, under the care of Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home.
