Robert "Bob" Bradley Holden, The Flirt, roller skater, boater, water skier, dog lover, and fighter of dandelions died on Friday April 4th, 2014 which was his 27th anniversary to his loving wife.
Bob loved his mother Lucy Johnson (deceased) and father Cleo (deceased) very much. His sisters Janet, Faye (deceased), Jeanie and Phyllis (deceased), and his two brothers Joseph (deceased) and Roy.
He married his love of his life that he called his "Baby" Linda Lou (Mobley) Holden that he met while working for 20 years at Jenn-Air in Indianapolis. They then had a very active life at Liberty Bell Haven on the Ohio River and traveling to the Grand Canyon and Niagra Falls were his favorite.
He excelled at caring for his pristine lawn to make all the neighbors envious. He would feed and water so could mow three times a week whether it needed it or not. He absolutely loved his rose garden and showing off the blooms to all his sons Steve, Gary, Tony, and Kenny. His grandchildren, Mitch, Brandi, and Jake. His stepchildren, Jeff, Kim, Chris and Step Grandchildren Michael, Brandy, Beth, Ricky, Ashley, Ryan, Travis, Caleb, Tori, and Christopher.
We are just sure that Bob is standing in front of Jesus in his cut off blue jeans asking him what part of The Garden of Eden he can tend to and keep mowed for him.
Your family will miss you dearly Sugar but we know your in a much better place than we are right now and your battle with cancer is over.
Bob's celebration of life will be on April 11, 2014 at Vineyard Community Church located at 2375 S. Walnut St. Bloomington, IN 47401 at 11 a.m.
