Don Lee Holder Sr.
May 15, 2019
Working with Don, Sr. in the restoration profession for many years allowed me to understand the real meaning of a true craftsman. Working with Don, Sr.'s son (Donnie) and Don, Sr.'s daughter (Christina) professionally allowed me to see first hand the fruits of a father passing on values of integrity, honesty, hard work, dedication, and professionalism to his children. Attending social events with Don, Sr. gave me the opportunity to feel the warmth, compassion, and love of a real family man's wonderful wife, children, grandchildren, other extended family, and friends.
It is with my total respect and honor that I will always call Don L. Holder, Sr. my friend. Please extend my sincere condolences, support, and prayers to the entire family and friends. I hope to see him again in the future.
