Holden, David H. Master Sergeant USAF Retired

Passed away Tuesday July 10, 2018 at his home in Felts Mills, NY.  A dedicated family man and patriot, serving 23 years in United States Air Force. His dedication to duty, service before self and excellence in all he did was above reproach not just in his duties but in his children and the countless young men and women he mentored during his many years of service. His attention to detail and his unwavering patriotism were paramount in the defense of our Nation. He was always adventurous, trying and learning about new cultures and people in the many places he was stationed.  A lesson he passed onto his four children as two of his sons followed in his footsteps and joined the Air Force.  He is survived by his three sons, Frank, Edwin and Patrick and daughter Michele and five grandchildren, three brothers, Robin (Penny) Holden, Mesquite, TX, Kerry ( Donna) Holden, Florida, Kevin (Tina) Holden, Dallas, TX and a sister, Wendy Holden, Watertown.
