Robert Reldon Holman

Our loving father, son, brother, and friend, Robert Reldon Holman, unexpectedly passed away on October 15, 2014, while taking his usual morning walk. Robert was married to Carrie Kamack; they had one daughter named Kinsie Stella Holman who, unfortunately, passed away when only a month and a half old. Rob was deeply affected by the loss of Kinsie and he never fully recovered from the loss his child. He later married Joanna Barrick in 1993 and had one daughter named Danielle Vondell Holman in 1995. Unfortunately, they divorced in 2003 but he still played a major role in his daughter's life, especially towards the end. Robert was a very happy, life loving man who enjoyed fly fishing, watching the Jazz play on T.V., and going to the Utes football games with friends and family. Rob made friends just about anywhere he went and because of that he will be surely missed. Born October 24th, 1961 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Reldon Max Holman and Kathleen Cummings and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Rob had a deep love and passion for football which stretched clear back when he played for Kearns High School in the late 1970’s. Throughout the years Rob learned and developed how to work on machines, particularly automotive engines. He was “Mr. Fix it,” because Robert could fix just about anything and he was always willing to help others because of the skills he had possessed and for the fact of him being a helpful and giving person. Robert spent many years putting his talent to work by repairing engines at Jerry Signs Auto Dealership in Utah and working for Delta Airlines in both Salt Lake City, Utah and LAX in California. Survived by his daughter, Danielle Vondell Holman; Mother, Kathleen Cummings; Step Father Lavell Cummings; Siblings, Steven Holman and Christine Black. The services will be held as a closed casket service on Monday, October 20, 2014 at the 6th Ward Chapel (81 N. Church St., Grantsville) beginning at 11 am. Robert will be missed by many and forgotten by none. Services entrusted with Didericksen Memorial, 435-277-0050.

To the family,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. The death of a loved one is not easy to deal with. I have found much comfort in God's promises when I have lost loved ones in my life. I would like to share what Revelation 21:4 says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I hope you will also find encouragement and hope in this wonderful promise. My heart goes out to you.
