There will be a celebration of his life at Santa Maria, Calif. A memorial service and interment will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at Mount Hope Cemetery. A picnic for family and friends is scheduled after the service at 3 p.m. at the home of his nephew, Gary Holman.

David was born in Baker City on Oct. 3, 1920, to Harriett Carter and Fred Holman. He was a 1939 Baker High School graduate. While in school, he enjoyed participating in many sports and was honored as Athlete of the Year.

Dave was a descendant of a pioneer family. His grandmother, Florence Boyer Powell, was the daughter of Thomas and Marietta Boyer, who homesteaded in the Hereford area. He took great pride in his family’s history and shared many stories of his ancestors and his own years of growing up in Baker City.

Dave had a distinguished banking career, which began in 1943 at Portland. He held positions in banks in Oregon and then in California and Nevada. He served in various positions at both branch and head office levels, such as executive vice president, loan officer, bank manager and regional vice president.

Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Jessica; four children; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Tom Holman; and two sisters, Dorothea Mitchell and Marie Wilson.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Carl, Robert, Louis and Wilbert.
