He was born November 13, 1932 in New Orleans, Louisiana to John Henry Holland and Henrietta Bouterie Holland. Bob served his country in the United States Air Force, serving in the Korean War. He was an active member, spiritual warrior and leader with many roles in his church. He was a member of Our Savior Lutheran and Christ Lutheran. He loved spending time with his family, most of all joking with his grandkids. Bob’s legacy is his steadfast love for his devoted wife. He was a role model of love and faithfulness for his family.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Robert John (Bob) Holland our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Bob. To Bob it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Korean War while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Bob, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 961 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 177 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Bob’s family and loved ones.
