OBITUARY

Charles Holt

May 9, 1946August 28, 2020

Charles Thomas Holt, 74, of Manchester, was granted eternal peace on Friday August, 28, 2020. He had battled COPD for years longer than his doctors expected. His family is saddened but also comforted that he is no longer in pain. Born on May 9, 1946, he was the son of the late Thomas and Lucille (Baroody) Holt. He was a brother to Joan Gannon of Manasquan, NJ, the late Maureen Becker of Manchester, the late Carolyn Holt, the late Marilyn Holt, and the late James Holt of Manchester.

Tom (as he was known), proudly served his country in the U.S. Army until he was honorably discharged in 1971, where he received several honors including the Bronze Star. He served as member of the Disabled Americans Veterans club and took yearly camping trips with fellow members. Tom enjoyed trips to lay in the sun at Hampton Beach. He loved watching many sports with friends and most recently with his brother-in-law. Though Tom was a quiet man, those who knew him genuinely cared for him and enjoyed his company. Tom was especially fond of his seven grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife Barbara Holt of Manchester, his daughters Kimberly Hennessey of Center Barnstead, Nicole Gagne of Plymouth, MA and his son Kevin Holt of Kingston. He is also survived by his grandchildren Dylan and Meghan Hennessey, Colin, Riley, and Tessa Holt, Tyler and Madison Gagne.

TOM - one of a kind ...
There are no words ... My FRIEND ...
Two kids ... half way around the world ...
Standing back to back on guard duty ...
Sitting back to back - as we ate from our mess kits ....
Riding next to each other in that jeep or duce an a half ...
Protecting so many many troops - with our Q-4 Radar...
Sandbags ... OH SO MANY SANDBAGS ....
Making that midnight run ...
(no lights no support) thru several miles of hostile area ...
JUST YOU and I ... and our Guardian Angels ....
YOU knew we needed those radar parts ...
SEEING things - no man should have to see...
DOING things - no man should ever have to do ...
In my three tours - I NEVER served with a BRAVER MAN ...
That friendly smile ... that little chuckle ... that CAMEL cigarette ...
We flew into and out of a lot of HOT LZ's my friend...
Now you are in that GREAT LZ in the sky...
I kept my promise to your (AWESOME) MOM ...
Now you are HOME with her and you Dad ...
and the rest of your loved ones there.
Rest In PEACE my friend ...
no one deserves to rest in peace more than you ...
(SO MANY memories racing thru my mind)
A VETERAN is NEVER gone ... until he is forgotten ...
I will NEVER forget you my friend...
I tell these memories to my grand children....
so they will always remember you ...
