Jerrol Lynn Holtby, beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, returned to his heavenly home after a quick and courageous battle with cancer. He passed away early Monday morning in his home surrounded by family.
Lynn was born June 18, 1948 in Salt Lake City, Utah to John "Jack" and Wanda Holtby. He attended Granite High School and received a music scholarship to the University of Utah where he graduated in Business and played drums with the music group Hamilton Court. It was during that time that he met his eternal companion, Christine Diane McDonald. They quickly fell in love and married June 8, 1973. They had three children and twelve grandchildren.
Lynn retired from Stor-N-Lock where he worked for 18 years as a project developer. He enjoyed the wonderful people he worked with for so many years but looked forward to retired living. He had many hobbies including music, golf, building and boating but his greatest joy was being with his family. Lynn will always be remembered for his kind heart and willingness to serve. He loved to help others with home renovations, fixing cars, serving in scouts, etc. He knew everything, truly, and was so willing to humbly help his neighbors.
Dad, we couldn’t have had a more Christ like example in our lives than you. Though we know we will see you again we will miss you every day. Thank you for being the wonderful father you were.
Lynn is survived by his wife, Christine Holtby, brother Gary (Vicki) Margetts, brother Dennis (Barbara) Holtby, children Emily (Max), Sara (Mike), Mike and 12 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Dee (Wanda) Thompson.
