GERALD "JERRY" ALVIN HOLT, 76, COLUMBIA, KY

 
Gerald “Jerry” Alvin Holt, 76, of Columbia, KY died Thursday, February 25, 2021 at his residence. Born in Reading, PA on May 8, 1944, he was one of 13 children born to the late Alvin and Margaret Gehret Holt.
 
Mr. Holt was a veteran of the United States Air Force and a retired Field Service Technician. He had previously worked for Digital Equipment in Bangor, ME, Compaq in Texas and Hewlett Packard in Colorado before retiring to Kentucky. 
 
Perhaps Jerry was best known for his very colorful outfits -- and wildly mis-matched bright socks -- as he cycled through Columbia in all seasons on his flag and banner festooned recumbent trike. For many years, Jerry was both a member and officer of Columbia's Rotary Club, where he was a champion fundraiser by getting donations for the Rotary Club's annual radio auction. He also was a cheerful early morning cook for Rotary's fundraising breakfast held each year during Columbia's Downtown Days. Jerry Holt also was a member of the Adair County Garden Club, always happy to help out in unusual ways. For example, he put together dozens of kits for garden club members to make bat houses in order to help struggling bat populations throughout the county. A lifelong Democrat, Jerry was a proud member of the Executive Committee of the Adair County Democratic Party and worked the election polls for many years. Finally, anyone who ever spent any time at all in the Holloway Wellness Center undoubtedly encountered Jerry. He enthusiastically participated in and often led morning aerobics classes as well as water aerobics. His unceasing good cheer and positive outlook on life will be sorely missed by all who had the good fortune to come across Jerry in so many venues across Adair County.
 
SURVIVORS:
Wife: Joan Dulworth of Columbia, KY
4 children: Peter Holt (Jessica) of Kingston, MA; Erica Martin (Neal) of Robesonia, PA; Alexandra Kiphart (Byron) of Centennial, CO; and Natasha Rexing (Donald) of Evansville, IN
5 grandchildren: Julian, Francesa, Jackson, Briggs and Shepard
Several nieces, nephews, friends and other relatives
 
Mr. Holt chose cremation and no services are scheduled at this time.  
 
The family request that any acts of kindness be in the form of donations to the GlioBlastoma Foundation at P.O. Box 62066, Durham, NC 27715 or at www.glioblastomafoundation.org, OR to the Rotary International at www.rotary.org.
