Jack R. Holter
Jack R. Holter, age 95, passed peacefully away on June 29, 2021, at Bridges of Mendon.
Jack was born on October 28, 1925, the youngest of three boys, son of Frank Markus Holter and Florence Holter, and grandson of Markus Gioe Rosenkrantz Holter, who immigrated from Sweden in the late 1800’s. Jack is survived by Joyce, his loving wife of over sixty-seven years, children, Dawn (Dave) Emery and Reid (Lynne) Holter, grandchildren, Kristen (Ben) Willmott, Stacey (Mike) Casella, Tyler Emery (Kalina Neal), Tara (Nick Nelson) Holter, Kyle Holter and Julia Holter and great-grandchildren, Livvie, Avery, Emmy, Charlie, and August.
Jack loved his family and they all deeply loved him. He always made time for family and rarely missed a sporting event or concert that involved one of his children or grandchildren. Jack and Joyce enjoyed travelling and their travels included attending many college games and graduations of their children and grandchildren.
Jack always enjoyed being active; he played tennis, golfed, skied, sailed and, for many years, Jack and Joyce would often be seen hiking rapidly down Log Cabin Road. In high school, he played football, basketball, and track for the Fairport Red Raiders.
Jack’s education at Denison University was interrupted by his naval service in World War II. After he was honorably discharged from the Navy, he returned home and graduated from the University of Rochester. Jack was a salesman and an entrepreneur. He started and, with the invaluable assistance of Joyce, for nearly fifty years he ran a successful business selling industrial equipment. Jack took great pride in solving problems for customers, usually, but not always, by making a sale.
Jack loved people and he loved to laugh. He lived a good life and will be dearly missed.
The family is planning a private service.
