Six of the fifteen members of that class are still alive; 9 are awaiting the call of their Maker on the resurrection morning. 

There is one of that class that is dearest to me, Myrle Dean, my Dad. 

On Dec. 13, 2006, after only 4 hours of being in the hospital, he passed away of a massive heart attack.  He would have been 90 years old June 10. 

Myrle was a lifetime resident of Holly having lived on the farm on Fish Lake Road since he was only 8 years old.  Myrle was active in the Holly church throughout his lifetime having served in mnay offices for over 70 years.  Visitation was one of his special gifts.  People had confidence in Myrle and appreciated his visits.  Often times the family would call him in time of need and he would be the first one to make a visit.  He also enjoyed gardening and would have a large garden, more than needed for the family.  People would find a bag of apples or garden produce on the back step during harvest time.  Gasoline engines and restoring old John Deere tractors was a hobby of his also.  Truly, he was the patriarch of the Holly church and Adelphian Academy.  He will be missed as a husband, father and friend.  He touched many lives and was a friend to all.
