Memories Timeline


  1. We are so sorry to hear about your Dad and so soon after your Mom’s passing. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

  2. Eugene’s many gifts I was fortunate to benefit from, learning to shoot baskets “granny” style, seeing how to fix anything and everything the right way, the aroma of his pipe on a cool fall night, a trip to tastee freeze for an ice cream cone. Learning what “no luck” meant when playing many games while he seemed to do well. And of course the value of a Ford.

    We lost Eugene physically but will always be in our heart next to Sibby.

    God bless the Holm Family
