Andrew Gary Holt, born on December 12, 1976, passed away suddenly on May 5, 2014 from an unknown cause, upon his return from Kuwait. He was born in Anchorage and attended Service High School where he graduated in 1995.

He is survived by his mother, Carolyn A Thomas; his father and step-mother, Gary and Elizabeth Holt; his brother, Justin Holt; his future sister-in-law, Natasha Meunier; his nephew, Hayden Thomas Holt who adored his uncle, Andrew; and numerous uncles, aunts and their children in the Lower 48. Andrew loved his puppy Posh who misses her "Daddy" dearly but "Mom' is loving her for him.

Andrew was employed by General Dynamics Land Systems for the last 10 years as a Field Service Representative for the Stryker Brigade at Ft. Wainwright Alaska. He was recently transferred to the 95th Chemical Company at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson. Andrew was deployed to Kuwait as a civilian with the Strykers, instructing the military on repairing, testing, and updating the Stryker vehicle. He was proud of his role helping protect and to prevent the soldier's injuries.

Andrew has traveled extensively over the last 10 years to faraway places as Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.

Andrew was preceded in death by both set of grandparents.
