Clyde Holt 06/01/2017

Clyde Holt websiteClyde Herman Holt, age 87, of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, died June 1, 2017.  He was born June 23, 1929 in Chehalis, Washington, the first of nine children of Vernon and Matilda (Kempf) Holt.
He grew up in the rural areas of Plum City, Maiden Rock and Bay City communities, attending grade school and high schools in those areas.
In 1949 he married Marilyn Jeanne Pfluger.  They had seven children; Sally, Dan, Kathleen, Pat, Nathan, Kelly and Carolyn.
Clyde was a carpenter by trade, working for construction companies in Wisconsin, Kansas and Texas, as well as an over the road truck driver in his later years.
At the age of 28, he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior and committed his life to the ministry.  He went on to establish a community church and pastored for fifteen years.  He was also actively involved in street ministry, small Bible groups, prison ministries and a weekly radio program.
He composed several Christian songs, wrote poetry and authored a book titled, “Tri-Unity”.
He was looked upon as a leader of faith and many people benefited from his counsel throughout the years.
One of his greatest joys was to share the Gospel with those he met on his earthly journey through life.  That journey has now taken him to his eternal home where he is in the presence of his Lord and Savior.
Clyde was preceded in death by his parents, an infant brother Eldon, a brother Norman, and two sisters, Edith and Doris.  He was also preceded in death by an infant granddaughter, Suzanne.
He is survived by his seven children, twenty grandchildren, nineteen great grandchildren, his siblings; Inez, Marshall, Lois, and Dorothy, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, June 23, 2017 at 5 pm at Living Waters Christian Fellowship 253 S Piety Street Ellsworth, WI 54011.  Visitation will also be on Friday, June 23, 2017 from 3-5 pm at the church.  Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services of River Falls.

    Hi! I was just told today that my very close Brother in Christ,
    Clyde Holt had passed away.. He has been a very good friend of mine for 20 years or more and I had talked to him I want to say, sometime in 2016. And I have tried to get in touch with him 3 to 4 times after that and left messages for him to call me back, but had no response from him so I was concerned on what may of happened. Clyde was married to Mabel Black in Olney Illinois and that’s where we became great friends. I am heartbroken to hear he has passed away.
    My hope is if there is any way that I can get in touch with his son Daniel or any of his children to have them fill me in on what had happen to their Dad. Clyde spoke often about Daniel and the other children, but Daniel is the only name I can remember.
    My hope is there any way that you can have one of his children try to contact me to let me know what had happen.

    Want to get in touch with one of his children, Daniel is on of his 9 kids I know, I don’t know any of the others by name.
    I would like to contact one of them and find out what had happened to him and when.
    Thank you!
