Randall "Randy" John Holman

Jun 27, 1947 Nov 1, 2023

It is with heavy hearts our family announces the passing of Randall John (Randy) Holman on November 1, 2023. A beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, and a devoted husband. He leaves behind a legacy of inspiration and love and will forever touch the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

Randy was born on June 27, 1947, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to parents Dale Ingram Holman and Dott Utah Henriksen. He married Catherine Gull in 1970 in the St George, Utah temple, sealed together for all eternity.

"Oh boy!"

Randy was an example of hard work and dedication, spending his career as a certified Master Automotive Mechanic. He served his country in the United States Army Reserve. He was an active member of the Cowboy Action Shooting Club. “RJ Hoot” received many awards and recognitions for his target shooting skills.

Randy was an amazing man and father who deeply loved his family and the Lord. He served a 2-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called to the Northern Indian Mission in 1966. Service was very important to Randy. He was given many opportunities to serve through his callings in the Church, including Elders Quorum Group leaderships, Primary Teacher, member of Bishopric, and his most favorite, ward librarian. However, his greatest act of service came from his time he spent with his family. He loved his grandchildren and eagerly volunteered to spend time with them whenever he could.

Randy is survived by his wife of 52 years, Catherine Holman; his children, Colette (Robert) Rawlins, Patricia Holman, Lynette Holman, Scott Dale (Amy) Holman, and Kelly Dean (Kimmy) Holman, sisters Dalene (Carl) Hankins, Claudia (Bryan) Reid, and Marsha (Joe) Sherwood, his 10 amazing grandchildren, and his beautiful great grandson. He is preceded in death by his parents Dale and Dott Holman and his son-in-law Robert Owen Rawlins.
