  Dwain attended Woodland High school. During his senior year he met Sherry Burash. After graduating High school, he was drafted into the Army. Once boot camp was finished he and Sherry got married and spent a year in Germany where he was stationed with the Army.

  Returning home, Dwain and Sherry began a family. They had Alan Holt of Streator, Thomas Holt of Crawfordsville, Indiana, and Kaaren (Charles) Schoof of Richmond Michigan. He was the best grandpa to 9 grandchildren (Graham, Jacob, Kendall, Emilee, Wyatt, Maximus, Charlie, Evalynn, and Ellenore)

  Dwain worked for US Foodservice for 30 plus years as a truck driver. He was a pastor for Communities of Christ Church for many years. He always had a great story to tell and could fix anything. He was the best popcorn maker and was a big music/movie lover. He was a grill master at heart. He loved being a veteran and serving his country. He had integrity and a passion for all things in his life.

  He was preceded in death by his parents. He was survived by his wife Sherry Holt of Richmond, Michigan, children and grandchildren.

  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends but they know he is rocking that grill in Heaven.
