Frank "Buster" Holt,
a much loved brother,
husband, father and papa,
passed away on 19 August
2014, at the age of 67. He
will be deeply missed.
Frank was born January 14,
1947 into an Army family
in Hillsborogh, Florida
and travelled to Germany
as a boy where he must've
gotten a bug to travel as he
enjoyed it quite a bit as an
adult. Frank did AFROTC at
Southern Illinois University
before marrying the love
of his life, Kay Funk, and
starting his 23 year career
in the Air Force as a meteorologist
in the Air Weather
Service. He was stationed
in Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois,
Canada and Colorado.
He was commander
of the solar observatory in
Exmouth, Western Australia,
where he learned one of
his favorite sayings, 'G'day
Mate!' along with diving in
the amazing clear waters.
After returning from Down
Under, he became commander
of all Air Force
solar observatories around
the world.
From camping trips to
coaching soccer teams,
Frank loved spending time
with family. He was an
ardent fan of his grandkids'
sports as well. He was a
season ticket holder to the
USAFA Falcons football
games and loved tailgating
with his friends.
He worked for ARINC and
MANTECH after retiring
from the Air Force where
his work brought him
into missile defense. He
travelled extensively for
work in this area and spent
much time in Israel. He
found much pleasure when
his wife and family could
spend time in Kauai. Frank
enjoyed golfing and was an
avid early morning jogger.
He also enjoyed microbrews
and was quite the
wine connoisseur. Frank's
sense of humor is what
made him unforgettable.
He will be missed dearly
by his wife, Kay Holt, brother
Steve Holt (wife Julie),
sister Karla Holt, daughters
Kim Braun (husband Steve)
and Alyssa McCluskey
(husband Mark) and grandchildren
Parker Braun,
Mackenzie McCluskey and
Jameson McCluskey.
He is preceded in death by
his parents, Sara and Frank
Holt and his sister, Kay Holt.
Services will be held at
the Church of Woodmoor,
18125 Furrow Rd., Monument,
CO on September
6th at 10am. A military
interment will be held
September 8th at Ft Logan
National Cemetery. In lieu
of flowers, donations can
be made to the Alzheimer's
Association (alz.org) or The
Wounded Warrior Project
(woundedwarriorproject.
org).
