Holt?

a global impact

Mr. Holt Sr. was born on June 18, 1946 in Hart County, Kentucky to the late Richard Holt and Christine Barbour. He was the fourth child of nine.

On March 13, 1976, Mr. Holt got married to Pearlena Young who stayed by his side for forty-two years, until he passed away on February 3, 2019. Mr. Holt has seven children, four girls and three boys and grandkids, who he loved dearly.

He worked for Lexington Fayette Urban County Government as a painter for 9½ years. He felt like this job was no longer meeting the needs of his family. He would say, “if you don’t like where you’re at in life, change it”, so he stepped out on faith and started his own painting and plastering business. Which was very successful.
