Obituary for Cecil Holder

Cecil  Holder
Cecil Delane Holder, 91, went to his heavenly home on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at Baptist Nursing Home in Calhoun City. Born March 8, 1926, he was the son of the late Everett Holder and the late Rosie Collums Holder. Cecil and his wife, Lurlene have been married for 70 years. They met almost by accident. Cecil was the only one with a car, and while taking two friends out on a date, Ms. Lurlene tagged along, and 3 months later they were married on November 2, 1946. He was a member of Derma Baptist Church, as well as a deacon at Poplar Springs Baptist Church. Mr. Cecil proudly served in the United States Navy, and is a veteran of WWII. He was a retired farmer, and when he wasn’t watching his beloved Ole Miss Rebels play, he spent most of his time woodworking, building everything from furniture and swings, to birdhouses. A very loving and caring man, Mr. Cecil will be greatly missed.
