Michael “Mickey” Alton Holbrook, age 77, was born on Thursday, July 15, 1943 in Fort Worth, Texas to GHL Holbrook and Estle Lee (Wood) Holbrook. Mickey passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2020.

Mickey graduated from Brewer High School in White Settlement, Texas. He started his work career at Safeway in high school, then went to work at General Motors where he retired after 32 years. Mickey’s favorite hobbies were playing golf with his buddies, going to the horse races, woodworking, traveling and gardening. We always said he had a green hand and not just a green thumb! He married Venita on Thursday, June 1, 1995 and had many adventures in their RV visiting every state but New Jersey, Delaware and Hawaii. Mickey was a fine Christian man who saw the good in everyone. He never met a stranger and his smile and laughter were infectious! He had a great sense of humor and always had a twinkle in his eye. One of our favorite sayings of Mickey’s was “The apple don’t fall far from the tree!” He was a wonderful husband, father, stepfather, grandfather and Papa.

Mickey is survived by his wife Venita; son Bret and wife Dena; stepdaughters Lori Platt, Robyn Delozier and husband Jeff; grandchildren Michael, Marissa, Hailee, Kylee, Brittani, Nick, Ashli and Amber; great grandchildren Hailey, Braxton and Whitlee; sisters Wanda Bradfield, Dorothy Wise, Peggy Wachtel, Kathy Marlow and brother Sam Holbrook; along with nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many dear and loved friends.

Mickey was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Virginia “Sissy” Brewer and brother Jimmy Holbrook.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital as this was Mickey’s favorite charity.

Our hearts are so heavy with the passing of Mickey. Mickey & Venita were helpers at our Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Maine for several years and fast became family members. They were a great couple and added greatness to everyone they met. Mickey certainly did have a green hand as he did the flowers at the Park which received so many compliments. Our special thoughts and prayers for all of the families with much love to Venita. 🤗🤗🙏🏻🙏🏻💕💕

We met a few years back when we were neighbors at the Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Hermon, Maine. We enjoyed Mickey's humor and infectious smile and how he was such a sweet and loving husband to Venita. He did such a beautiful job with the flowers at the campground. They flourished under his care.

Mickey's memory will carry on. He was one of those rare unforgettable souls and we are proud to have known him.

My husband and I belonged to the same Sunday school class as Mickey and Venita. When Venita had surgery on her shoulder, Mickey learned how to do Venita’s up-do hair!! He did it very well too!! That simple act showed us in so many ways what a selfless and loving man he was.

Mickey played an important role in my life growing up. He coached my softball teams with the White Settlement Rookies, made the best steak fingers and was a kind, loving and always smiling man with the most positive outlook.

I will hold the memories deep in my heart forever. Thank you for everything Mickey. RIP🙏🏻❤️
