George was born on September 20, 1943 in Cottonwood, N.M.; the son of Floyd B. and Eva M. (Martin) Holt.
He was a dishwasher in the kitchen at Cannon Air Force Base for 20 years. He was a member of West Main Baptist Church , enjoyed gardening and was an avid Bulldog fan. George loved all people.
We was preceded in death by his parents, guardians Aunt Sis and Uncle J.C. Walker, brother Roy G. Holt, sister Cathaline Holt and numerous aunts and uncles.
On behalf of Vesta Youtsey, Jeff and Penny Youtsey and Mark and Nancy Peterson we would like to thank the community of Artesia and San Pedro Nursing Facility for their love and care of George.
George seemed to be in a good mood every time we3 spoke at the local coffee shops in Artesia. I remember growing up a "George Wayne" in our neighborhood and wonder if he is one individual. Bless you George and Rest in Peace.

I had the pleasuring of knowing Mr. Holt while my mother was a resident of San Pedro. He was the friendliest and sweetest man ever. Sincere condolences to his family.
