OBITUARY

Alicia Holland

November 10, 1957December 20, 2020

Sunday evening, December 20, 2020 our beloved Alicia, age 63 years, unexpectedly passed away at Arlington Medical City Hospital and entered the gates of heaven. Alicia lived a full and vibrant life despite being diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 16. Alicia loved people and displayed her sunny disposition with laughter and fun. She always offered a helping hand to others in time of need. Her unwavering devotion to her faith and family were the source of her beautiful essence.

Alicia was born in Sherman, Texas, on November 10, 1957, to Herbert and Bennie Fox. She was the fifth sibling. She graduated from Denison High School in 1975 and subsequently achieved her Associate Degree of Applied Science in Business and Secretarial Fields in 1979. While in High School, she was a drum major in the band and sometimes wore the Yellow Jacket Mascot to support her school.

Alicia had deep roots. She loved her family and friends, especially her beloved dad (Herbert). Herbert and Alicia were often seen together at rodeos and playdays. She loved her music, horses, her special dogs and animals of all kinds. She was a competitive barrel racer, accomplished musician and softball player. No doubt, she was a tomboy. Her favorite band was Three Dog Night. She was one of their official groupies often traveling to attend their concerts and getting invited to go backstage to mingle with the artists.

She married in 1979 and shortly thereafter moved to Arlington, Texas to help put her then husband through college. They began to establish Arlington as their home until their divorce after 25 years in 2004.

Alicia worked for Texas Utilities Corporation from 1979 thru 1992. She truly loved her job and the people she worked with. She continued her extracurricular fun activities by wearing the Texas Utilities ‘Louie The Lighting Bug’ costume to support company events. Her career with Texas Utilities ended in 1992 as downsizing provided her the opportunity to leave with a bonus. Considering her declining health, she accepted.

Not long after her divorce, Alicia began to vigorously pursue her music abilities to make a living. She had established her music career in her earlier life as she became proficient playing the piano, organ, keyboard, clarinet, banjo and accordion. She taught piano to many young aspiring students and played the organ in various venues. As Alicia performed around the metroplex she met the love of her life, Domingo Carvajal. They moved to Midlothian, TX and began the joint pursuit of success in the Entertainment Business. They performed primarily all over the metroplex yet made trips to other major cities as well. They had many friends and fans. She truly loved what they were doing.

After our mother, Bennie Fox, passed in 2017 Alicia and Domingo moved back to Arlington where Alicia unexpectedly left this earth and joined the Angels in Heaven on December 20, 2020. Alicia is survived by her brother, Michael J. Fox and her Domestic Partner Domingo Carvajal. Alicia and Domingo were together 24/7 and really happy for 16 beautiful years. Alicia’s family appreciates the outpouring of love, affection and support received from all of her friends and family.

My Dearest Friend,
It is difficult to be writing in a "Memorial Book" for you! I write this to you on behalf of myself. Even though you & Mike were High School Sweethearts, College Sweethearts then happily married for the majority of those 25 years, you did not want a divorce. Your unexpected departure has had a profound effect on so many people & it's still very hard to accept. Oh, sweet Alicia, I will miss our weekly, Zoom prayer meetings, & so much more! I will forever miss our talks, laughs, & endless visits about life, love, Jesus, & Gods Word. Because Jesus is your Lord & Savior, you are now in Heaven with your parents, 2 Sisters, Gary G., & many more. I pray Jesus will introduce you to my baby Son, Taylor too.
Thank you for all the yrs. of friendship. Many hearts are sad you're no longer here. I know Mike's heart is hurting & poor Domingo is heartbroken too. Bless his heart.
I love you, Alicia and always will.
To Michael Fox, on behalf of Mike & myself, we are truly sorry for the loss of your precious Sister, Alicia. We ask the Lord to comfort you.

Most sincerely,
Tami Stein Holland

My dear Alicia,
I know you are at peace with no more worries of anything. Knowing you as long as I did was a pure joy, I always enjoyed our conversations and I will never forget the time you played the piano for my mom at the home she was in, and she sang the song. You are an angel in heaven and I will miss you so much!! May you rest in peace and I will cherish our memories till I see you again..❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
