So sorry to hear about the death of Milo Holt. We belonged to the same Toastmasters group in the '80s He was very friendly and interesting to talk to. We talked a lot about our Lutheran faith. He will surely be missed. Prayers to the family. Beverly B. Schang

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Holt. I had the pleasure of meeting him at Toastmasters in 1989. He was a true gem personally and professionally. He will be missed. Prayers to his family and friends.
