Mr. Holmes was drafted into the United States Army where he proudly served his country during the Korean War and later in Germany. David was the most kind man.

He was especially good at working on his lawnmowers. Above all else David Holmes loved his family and spending time with them any chance he could.

Gone before him are his loving wife of 49 years, Mrs. Peggy Holmes; his son, Jerry Eldridge, his parents; his siblings; sisters, Merle Dixon, Wilma Morgan, Erma Poland; and brothers, Newt Holmes, and John Holmes. Left to cherish his memory are three daughters, Dian Waldron and husband Randall, Charlene Hinton and husband Jimmie, and Kimberly Ridgeway and husband Paul; one son, Pete Holmes and wife Karen; nine grandchildren, Shana Shields and husband Nathan, Rachel Rimlinger and husband Ryan, Jacob Waldron and wife Sarah, Aaron Hinton and wife Alix, Kacy Ridgeway, Katie Holmes, Karson Ridgeway, Charlotte Holmes and Nate Holmes; great grandchildren, Ross Rimlinger, Finnley Shields, Ireland Shields, Jude Waldron, Rhett Rimlinger, and Everett Hinton; his sister, Jane Vallandingham, and numerous nieces, nephews, beloved relatives and dear friends.
