I worked with him for many years at Bassett Mirror and always will remember him for the kindest and loving personality he always showed. He was a great gentleman and a dear friend. I attended his funeral and so inspired all the love that was shown. He sure was a bright star in my life and I know Heaven's door were looking forward to his arrival. May God Bless his family. My prayers and love.

I worked with Mr. Holt at Bassett Mirror. He was absolutely one of the finest men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. There were times I would help him out with Ins paperwork and he would bring me something special that his wife had made. I worked in the office with Freddie Holt. Between Freddie and Willie, there was never a dull moment, they kept you laughing and helped you see the brighter of things. Some of my fondest memories of BM, were definitely with Willie Holt. What a great man of God he was and loved to share it with others. I am so sorry for the families loss and you will be in my thoughts and prayers, but I can definitely say HEAVEN IS MUCH SWEETER WITH WILLIE. May God bless you all.

I remember this precious jewel of a Godly Man, as Deacon Holt. Deacon Holt will always have my utmost respect and admiration for him, as well as for his precious sweet Sister Mildred, his late wife. I loved to hear him teach the Bible, with such wisdom that was unique. He could sing praises to the Lord that would inspire your soul. His testimonies were so powerful of his love for Jesus, making all who heard feel we were truly standing in a heavenly place. He loved his family dearly, his church family dearly, and his Lord of Lords dearly. A very kind, sweet, humble Soul, A true Man of God. Sincerest Condolences to the Family, and his Church Family.

I thank God for blessing my family with the presence of Deacon Holt through my Aunt Jeanette or Jenny as Dea. Holt called her. He will always hold a special place in my heart. From the first day I met him, my name became "Sunshine", not really sure if he knows my name but that was ok. I will miss him very much and giving him a kiss on his head. He has truly been such a blessing to the Foster family. One of his favorite songs was "If you hear of my homegoing, don't worry about me, well I know that there is nothing on this side that would bring you back, so I say " I will miss you but I will see you later!" I love you "Sunshine"
