Kenneth W. HOLT Obituary
December 13, 1925 - June 23, 2015 Kenneth Wayne Holt, born 12/13/1925 to Helen Barnes Holt and Sydney Wayne Holt of Garden Grove, passed on peacefully in the early morning hours 6/23/2015. He is lovingly received on the other side by his parents, wife Helen, and little sister Helen Louise Holt Mueller, and survived on this side by his sister Jean Holt Koch, son and daughter Steven and Rebecca Holt, and stepchildren David, Robert, and Susan Jackson, as well as dozens of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews. Ken graduated from Garden Grove High School in 1944; served in the Navy; graduated and earned his teaching credential at Whittier College; and started his family in Orange County. In 1957 he founded Fairmont Private School at its historic campus on Mable Street in Anaheim. He became a Mason, like his father. In 1967 he joined the Mormon Church, later serving two missions in South America and officiating at sacred ceremonies in the San Diego Temple. He enjoyed snow skiing, building a cabin at Green Valley Lake, and later a ski lodge in Park City, Utah. He owned and flew many planes, and was a member of the AOPA. His greatest accomplishments were his relationships, friends, family, and 'conocidos'. He is remembered for his great care with others, integrity, honesty, and kindness; true Christian values. We will miss his sweet nature, and happy optimism. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to your preferred charity.
