Kenneth Clyde Holt, Sr., 88 of McGehee, Arkansas, died in his home surrounded by family on Thursday, November 5, 2020 in McGehee. He was born in the community of Hamilton, Arkansas, on August 22, 1932 to the late Louis Clyde and Flossie Rouse Holt.

Kenneth graduated from Tillar High School and began his lifelong career of farming, of which rice was his favorite. He was a pioneer in the practice of water seeding rice, locally known as “mudding it in.” He loved flying airplanes and spent a vast majority of his time with his family. He was a member of the McGehee First Baptist Church where he sang in the choir, was a deacon, and taught Training Union to youth.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Sammy Holt. Survivors include his wife of 61 years, Vashti, of McGehee; sons Lewis Holt and his wife, Beth Ann, of McGehee; Ken and his wife, Lorrie, of Dumas; his sisters Joyce Holt Kimbro of Tillar, and Peggy Holt Goodgame of Dumas; his grandchildren and great grandchildren Kathryn, Jonathan, Mary Kathryn, Anne Camp, and Elizabeth Love Byrum of Starkville, Mississippi; Hilary, Bert, Hazel, and Kip Crowley of Mathiston, Mississippi; Bradley, Courtney, Camden, and Brant Holt of McGehee; Kara Beth, Colby, and Samuel Linn of McGehee; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, November 7, at McGehee First Baptist Church from 3 pm-5 pm. Honorary pallbearers include David Binns, Zach Christmas, Randy Cox, Jr., Todd Fortenberry, Jay Hardin, and Eddie Young. The funeral will be held at Tillar Cemetery on Sunday, November 8, at 2:30pm with Brother David Brown, Brother Ed Balducci, and Brother Rick Miller officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to McGehee Hospital Sustain the Pride, P.O. Box 351, McGehee, Arkansas 71654 or McGehee First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 133, McGehee, Arkansas 71654.

We were sad to read of Kenneth’s passing. We remember him from his many visits to Hampton Pugh Company and the short time that he was our back door neighbor when we moved to Shannon Drive. Our prayers are with the family at this time

It was with sadness that we learned of the passing of Kenneth. Kenneth and all his family have been our special friends for many years. He will be missed by us all but we have comfort in knowing he is now in a better place. May God comfort each of you during this time of loss. Our prayers are with each of you.
