Sidney E.
(Age 69)

Born January 7, 1942, Sid went to be with the Lord February 16, 2011.
He passed away at home surrounded by his family after a two-year battle with Multiple Myeloma.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Sid graduated from Bergenfield High School and from Central College in Iowa with a degree in Sociology. While in Iowa, he met and fell in love with his wife, Judith Vandenberg. Sid made Spokane his home in 1979 and together they raised two sons. Sid enjoyed a long career in the Criminal Justice system until retiring in 2007. He and Judi were avid boaters and campers and spent many long weekends on their sailboat with family and friends in Bayview, ID. He was an active member in his church, and was blessed by the many friends who became members of his Christian family.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Judi; two sons, James F. Holden (wife Anca) of Belchertown, MA and Jonathan R. Holden (wife Tara) of Davenport, WA; two grandsons, Alexander and Daniel, and two granddaughters, Michaela and Olivia; his sister Janet Arguello
(husband Edward) of Colorado; and numerous nephews and nieces. Sid was preceded in death by his parents, Sidney Holden, Sr. and Grace (Engleke).
