Charles Cecil Holt Sr. was born to Earnest Holt Jr. and Louise Patterson at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio, Tuesday, June 9, 1942. Exceeding the expectations of doctors, Charles took his final rest on Saturday, May 1, 2021. After graduating from Roosevelt High school, Charles began his professional career, working at General Motors for over 20 years. On March 30, 1963, he married the love of his life, Carol J. Holt. From this union, nine children were produced. Many things throughout Charles’ life brought him joy and pleasure, like skating and fishing. He took great pride in being a father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle to all his “boobeans”. Charles was a dedicated member of Faith Temple P.C.O.G. Sunday after Sunday, he could be found sitting in the same seat on the left side of the sanctuary with his wife, enjoying the choir, the preached word, and especially the dance ministry of his granddaughters. Of all his accomplishments, being saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled, and fire baptized was paramount. Charles is preceded in death by his Mother, Louise Patterson; his Father, Ernest Holt Jr.; two children, one grandchild, one sister, and one brother.
