The family will receive guests at Stutts Funeral Home from 12:30 p.m. until the funeral hour Saturday.

Mr. Holland was born Aug. 27, 1922, in Edmonds, Washington, to Will Jackson Holland Sr. and Beulah Gray Holland. At an early age his family moved to Puente, California, where he graduated from high school.

He served his country honorably in the U.S. Army during World War II and the Korean War. After more than 20 years of active service, he retired in 1966 with the rank of master sergeant. His career in the Army allowed him to travel to many places, including Germany, Taiwan, Iran, Japan and Korea, where he was stationed for a six-month tour.

While serving in the Army he met the love of his life, Mrs. Ana Pope Holland. They were married 44 wonderful years until her death Feb. 9, 2003.

His job in the Army was in the logistics department, which served him well in future employment. He worked for several years as a dispatcher for a trucking company.

One of his greatest passions was golf. He played it when he had free time, and his travels gave him the opportunity to play golf courses around the world. He also loved to watch Atlanta Braves baseball.

He was a member of Antioch Baptist Church, a devout Christian, and he read his Bible daily. He especially enjoyed listening to the Rev. David Jeremiah and read many of his books.

Survivors include two nieces: Dale Jean, of Acworth, and Marla Mize, of Loganville; two nephews, Donald Kirkland (Paulette), of Callahan, Florida, and Ronald Harrison (Cathy), of Greensboro; and a number of great-nieces, great-nephews, other relatives and friends.
