Terry Charles Holden

November 19, 1952October 11, 2020

Holden, Terry Charles, age 67 of Crandall, Texas died peacefully on October 11th, 2020. Terry was born on November 19th, 1952 in St. Louis, Missouri to Charles Holden and Juanita Trentmann, the second-oldest of four siblings, Sherry Quincy, Pamela Ferguson, and Charles Holden, Jr.

He served in the Army during the Vietnam War and learned how to work on heavy machinery. After returning, he quickly immersed himself in his family and used his skills to become a successful business owner of an auto repair business. He loved spending time with his family, driving the church bus, and he was passionate about helping others.

Terry is survived by his wife of 29 years, Susan Holden, his two children, Victoria Hale and her husband Phil of Royce City, Michael Holden and his wife Tracy of Balch Springs, and his stepson Justin Bauer and his wife Beverly of Dallas. He was graced with six grandchildren, Tyler, David, Samantha, Charles, Emily, and Harper, and two great-grandchildren, London and Mary-Alice.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you emulate Terry. Instead of passing by a stranger in need, stop and give them a helping hand. As Terry found, the stranger will soon become your friend. Donations may also be made to Hope Supply Co.,, to help homeless children throughout DFW.

A celebration of life will be held at Talty Baptist Church on Saturday, October 17th, 2020 at 10:00am.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Holden family.

Such a beautiful service to celebrate life. Gonna miss you Uncle Terry. Had many so many great times hanging out with you and Aunt Susan. You took good care of me when I first moved to Dallas. Sorry I hadn’t made it out to see you recently. Tell Dad I said Hi and you two try to stay out of trouble up there. Love you Aunt Susan I’ll be praying for you and everyone around you in this hard time.

Terry and Susan were so kind to us after we left a spiritually abusive group. They took us to dinner and were supportive of our decision. Both of them were encouragers and helped us to process our experience. Terry will be greatly missed.
