Laroon Holt, went peacefully into Jesus' arms Sunday afternoon at home while holding the hand of his son and daughter. The trumpeter was born in Barnes, Kansas on October 28, 1939. After studying at the Conservatory of Music in Kansas City, he moved to Los Angeles in 1962 with his wife Claudene and enjoyed a highly successful career as a big band musician playing with greats such as Lawrence Welk, Bob Hope, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and numerous recording sessions with musical giants such as Les Brown, Tex Beneke, Nelson Riddle and Stan Kenton. His kids were particularly fond of the fact he played with David Cassidy and the Partridge Family. He was an avid golfer and passionate about all sporting events. Married to Claudene until her death in 2008, he is survived by two children; Tim Holt of Pismo Beach, Heidi Summers of South Pasadena, and was very proud to have 8 grandchildren and a soon to be great-granddaughter. He also had two step-daughters, Bobbette Smith of Apple Valley and Brenda Owens of San Dimas. Memorial service at a later date. Arrangements by Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
