Lee Allen Holder, 79, ended his 10 year battle with dementia and exited in grace on July 30, 2019. He is survived by his wife, Gina; his sons, Tony Neff and Jason Holder; his daughters, April Freeman, Shauna Johnson and Amber Holder; and six grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters, Shirlene and Judy. He was preceded in death by his parents, Everett Allen and Gertha Mae Holder of Morrilton, AR and his sister, Verna. Lee trained and served as an electronics technician 2nd class in the U.S. Naval Reserves from 1958-1962 and later worked for NOAA for 41 years, which took him to seven states and two foreign countries. His hobbies included restoring classic cars and carpentry. In accordance with his wishes, there will not be a funeral service; instead, his ashes will be spread in his home state of Arkansas at a later date. Donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of Lee’s life.

    Lee was one of a kind and a very interesting person to know. His most striking attribute was his fair and honest treatment of friends and strangers. He would buy classic cars and spend many weekends fixing them just to turn around and sell them for close to the same price he paid. This gave me the impression that being seen as an honest and fair man was more important to him than being reimbursed for all his labor and hard work. As a teenager I enjoyed visits to his house. He was always working on a car for his kids or his motorcycle, so many times I would stop in to chat in his garage before going in to see his children. His conversations were always interesting and he was always ready to challenge your preconceptions. While he enjoyed talking about his cars, projects, and different points of view nothing brought a smile to his face like when he talked about his children. I value the time I spent with him.
