    Dear Brother Dave, Family and Friends,

    “Amazing Grace,
    how sweet the sound
    that saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now am found
    Was blind but now I see
    When we’ve been there,
    ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we first begun”

    We take great comfort in knowing Dave is resting in peace.
    Jeanne, Camille & Lily

  • I will always be thankful to David Holland for Boy Scout Troop 776. As a single mom, it was a blessing to have a Christian man take an interest in my son and help him learn about camping. David was always ready to take the boys to interesting places and help them earn merit badges. He never shied away from overnight camping when it snowed or there were tornadoes in the area. His steady, patient demeanor with the boys helped them feel confident and cared for. He could be counted on to lead a Bible study or pray for the boys and their requests. I appreciate everything David did to help my son grow into the well-rounded man he is today.
    Praying God’s comfort, grace, and blessings for the family.

  • David loved Jesus with all his heart, and faithfully served God throughout his life. Dave’s greatest desire was for all to know and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. He brought many to know God’s love. It is such a comfort to those he had to leave here on earth that David still lives with us in our hearts, and that he lives healed and whole forever with his Heavenly Father. We will all be together one Glorious Day.

    Grace and peace, friends and family, David’s sister, Susan, (“Joe”)

    What a celebration in heaven greeted Dave. He was a true servant, always putting His Savior’s love on display. He impacted our family for eternity.
    Our deepest sympathy.

  • I’m glad he’s dead. A worst person has seldom walked the earth. His daughter absolutely hated him and was not shy about telling anyone and everyone what he was. She called the police on him when when has beating his wife. He broke windows, destroyed TV’s and more. He was physically abusive, mentally abusive, condescending and is now in hell.
