HOLM—Darryle Jerome Holm, 73, formerly of Florence, passed away Sept. 10, 2017.
Darryle was born Nov. 10, 1944, in Willmar, Minn., to Reuben William Holm and Grace Viola Holm (nee O’Hair). When Darryle was six, his family moved to Portland, Ore., where he graduated from Parkrose High School.
Drafted into the U.S. Army in 1965 dur- ing the Vietnam War, he was trained as a helicopter crew chief but served as a baker at Fort Mead, MD., from 1965-1967. He was married to Corrine Miller in 1966 and divorced in 1986.
He is survived by their three children: Eric Holm of Aloha, Ore., Holly Petersen of Anchorage, Alaska, and Kendra Castle of Gresham, Ore.; three brothers: Dan Holm of Welches, Ore., Dale Holm of Klamath Falls, Ore., and Larry Holm of Eagle Creek, Ore.; one sister, Margo Bedell of Lopez Island, Wash.; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
His older brother, Don Holm, preceded him.
Darryle worked in construction most of his life. He liked to say “I’ve built everything from an outhouse to a five-story steel building.” At times he was a union carpenter, at times a partner with his brothers in construction companies.
He was a great problem solver. He loved hunting, fishing and his family.
Darryle is survived by his wife, Annette Andre Holm, whom he married in 1999.
They lived in Florence until they moved three years ago to Hillside Retirement Community in McMinnville, Ore.
We will greatly miss his quiet love and infectious smile. A celebration of life is planned for Sept. 30, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Wellness Center at Hillside Retirement Community in McMinnville.
