Obituary

Walter B Holman Jr., 77, of Sparta, TN passed away Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at his home. Mr. Holman was born July 2, 1943 in Sparta, Tennessee to the late Walter and Bessie Holman. Walt served as an Elder at West Sparta Church of Christ for 32 years.

Daddy (Papa) was the strongest and toughest man we knew. He loved his farm on Bon Air Mt. that he kept in perfect shape. He loved and enjoyed time spent with his kids and grandkids and loved his wife dearly. A family “get together” made his day. Joy was found through tractor rides, bon fires, wienie roasts, woodworking and most of all beautiful sunsets. He could grow anything and took pleasure in giving away the fruits of his labor. He could build anything with his hands and loved to add detail and leave his mark. If you never had a swing in his arms as a child, you were missing out and that brought such happiness to hear the little squeals.

This wonderful man will be dearly missed and forever loved.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his; Brothers- Chester Holman, Stanford Holman, Clifford Holman, Herman Holman, and Leon Holman. Sisters- Estelene Cashdollar, Pauline Bennett, Dorothy McCall, Beulah Howell, and Thelma Jean Clark.

Surviving family include; Wife- Anna Lou Holman of Sparta, TN
Daughters- Kimberly Ann McDonald (Steve) of Sparta, TN and Mary Beth Whitson (Kayd) of Sparta, TN
Sons- Matthew Holman (Robynn) of Sparta, TN and Charles Bransford Holman “Brant” (Lauren) of Cookeville, TN

10 Grandchildren, with one on the way in August- Makayla Brown, Layne Brown, Elin McDonald, Willow Whitson, Stone Whitson, Rylan Holman, Wes Holman, Wiley Holman, Levi Holman, and Brodie Holman, and a baby girl due in August.

Brothers- Buford Holman (Ruth) of Sparta, TN and Raymond Holman (Sue) of Sparta, TN.
Sisters- Josephine Howard of Mt. Juliet, TN and Ernestine Holman of Sparta, TN.

The Funeral Service will be held Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 4 p.m. at West Sparta Church of Christ located at 100 Hampton Drive Sparta, TN 38583 with Derrick Coble officiating, burial will follow at Holman Family Farm. The family will receive friends on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at West Sparta Church of Christ from 1 p.m. until time of service at 4 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations to be made to the Robert Hill Prater Preacher Training Fund in care of West Sparta Church of Christ (931) 836-3790, 100 Hampton Drive Sparta, TN 38583.
