He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Barbara. Bob is predeceased by his parents, Harmon and Lillian Holt; his sister Elinor Holt Evans; brother-in-law Bill Evans and his brothers, James Holt and William Holt.

Bob was an outstanding athlete. At age 17 he received a football scholarship to Auburn University. During his physical he was diagnosed as a diabetic. He then attended Georgia Tech. While there, he received a letter from the Governor of Georgia regarding an appointment to West Point, which he had to decline because of his diabetes. He also attended Florida State University. Bob was a Real Estate Broker. He sold residential real estate until he decided to sell commercial real estate, so he didn’t have to keep buying refrigerators.

Bob was a man of integrity. He would always be hunting, fishing, enjoying his sweet dogs, riding in his truck and flying around in his airboat.

“Uncle Graham” is lovingly remembered by Ellie Evans, TJ Sheehan (Debora), Alan Sheehan, Chip Evans, Ashley Evans, Rebecca Evans, Sandra Lee Evans, Jim Holt (Janice), Pam Holt, Nira Holt, Bill Holt, Debbie Campbell (Phillip) and Becky Ulam.
