Frank E. Holman, Sr., 82

F rank E. Holman, Sr., 82, of Maple Street, passed away on Sunday, August 17, 2014 peacefully at his home of natural causes.

He was born July 7, 1932 in Clemons, New York and graduated from Whitehall Central School in 1949. He married the love of his life, Shirley Brace, and was married for 59 years until her passing on September 26, 2012.

He was a member of the American Legion, U. S. Army and then the New York State National Guard being honorably discharged after many years. He was member of the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company for many years and also served as Fire Chief during that time.

He will be remembered for his compassion, kind, loving and thoughtful behavior. He always made everyone smile and he loved his family and always put them first. He enjoyed four-wheeling, fishing and hunting and could keep up with the young climbing those hills. He had many neighbors who kept him busy which included him in outdoor activities which the family is most grateful.

Frank is survived by his daughter, Pamela DeWitt and her husband, Frank of Queensbury, sons, Frank Holman, Jr. and his companion, Ann Sutliff and daughter Lauren of Saratoga Springs and Michael Holman of Whitehall; two grandchildren, Frank III and Seth and several nieces and nephews.

Family and friends may call at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams, Whitehall on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with Rev. Rendell Torres, pastor, officiating.

Interment will follow in Greenmount Cemetery in Whitehall.
