John Russell Holliday

August 13,1940 ~ October 27, 2021

John Russell Holliday was born August 13,1940, in Dayton, Ohio. After 81 years on this earth he joined his parents, Russell and Clarys (Sutton) Holliday, in heaven on Oct. 27. His body was tired but not a victim of Covid.

John was a jokester who loved the Lord with all his heart. He echoed this love to everyone and made each feel special. He excelled in athletics throughout his youth; playing hockey and football until he graduated high school in Michigan in 1958. He then enlisted in the Army, where he continued his football career until he was honorably discharged in 1962. He completed his degree for cooling and refrigeration from Ferris State in 1966. The adventure didn’t stop there – it was, in fact, just . . .
