Obituary of Robert George Holden

It is with great sadness that the family announces the peaceful and dignified passing of Robert “Bob” George Holden with his wife and daughters by his side on April 16, 2024 at the age of 81.

Bob is survived by his wife, partner, and best friend of 61 years, Helen (Weir) Holden, his daughters Marie (Bob) Mills, Sandra Holden (Paul Vondervoort), Brenda (Lorne) Larsen,  and Peggy (Tim) Segeren. He will be missed by his grandchildren Katie, TJ, Ryan, Derek, Robert and Justin, and great-granddaughter, Hannah.

Bob was a proud and respected dairy and cash crop farmer who owned and operated, along with Helen, Holdmar Farms for 55 years. Bob was a lifelong resident of Zorra Township.

Bob enjoyed and took great pride in his Massey Ferguson tractor collection, was a member of the Embro-Zorra tug-of-war team and talented competitive minor hockey player during his younger years.

The family would like to thank Dr. Hepburn for his compassion, respect, and exceptional care during Bob’s last two years.

At Bob’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral.

In his memory, donations may be made to the
