Wayne Vernon Holter, 75, of Boonsboro, died Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, at home.

Born Nov. 3, 1936, in Frederick, he was the son of the late D. Vernon and Helen Hoffman Holter. He was the husband of Sarah Ifert Holter, his wife of 46 years.

He was a 1954 graduate of Frederick High School and went on to Western Maryland College, where he graduated in 1958. He then graduated with his Masters of Education degree in 1964.

He served his country with the Army in the 558th Signal Company, which was called to active duty in 1961 by President Kennedy during the Berlin Crisis.

He taught at Middletown and Brunswick high schools before becoming an administrator at Linganore, Walkersville and Thomas Johnson Evening High School. After his retirement, he worked as a realtor with McIntosh Realty in Frederick.

He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Middletown, where he was a former teacher of the Adult Discussion Group.

In 1983, he authored the book "Moran Fire and Steel." He also wrote many articles about knives and guns, as they were his hobby, and he spoke of them until he could no longer speak. He was a member of a custom knife-making group, The William F. Moran Jr. Museum and Foundation in Frederick.

Wayne's final big adventure was building a tree house for his grandchildren.

Surviving, in addition to his wife, are daughter Julie Ann Selin and husband Timothy, of Boonsboro; a son, Charles Vernon Holter, of Greencastle, Pa.; a daughter-in-law, Mary Patricia Holter, of Greencastle; and grandchildren Jacob, Chase and Emma Holter, and Alyssa and Madison Selin.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Bast-Stauffer Funeral Home, 7606 Old National Pike, Boonsboro; and from 10 a.m. until the time of service, 11 a.m. Monday at Zion Lutheran Church, 107 West Main St., Middletown, with the Rev. Kathy Vitalis Hoffman officiating. Interment will be held at the church cemetery.

Memorial donations may be sent to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, Grand Central Station, P.O. Box 4777, New York, NY 10163; or to the Hospice of Washington County, 747 Northern Ave., Hagerstown, MD 21742.
