Dub passed away on September 3, 2019 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
His memorial service is scheduled for 10 a.m., September 21, 2019 at First Woodway Baptist Church in Woodway, Texas.
Dub was born in Bluit, New Mexico and was the youngest of seven sons born to William Albert Holt, Sr. and Annie B. Powell Holt.
Dub grew up in the Owl Creek community in Coryell County, Texas, Camp Hood (later to be Fort Hood) and Gatesville, Texas, where he graduated high school. Dub enrolled at Texas Tech University in 1952 and spent two years in the Army during the Korean War before returning to Texas Tech to complete his degree in 1958. He then received his Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology in 1966 from Western Michigan University.
Dub married Margaret Conely in 1965 and the pair had three children and six grandchildren.
Dub was preceded in death by his father, mother, and brothers, Wayland, Lowell, Garland, Russell, Bradford and James.
Dub worked in a variety of capacities throughout his lifetime including a collegiate instructor, director of speech language clinics, and speech language pathologist in Floydada and Plainview School Districts.
Dub was active in church and belonged to several choir groups, including the Baylor Singing Seniors. Dub enjoyed sports and was the public service announcer for Floydada High School for a few years.
Dub was known for his love of family, quick wit, infectious laugh and his kind and compassionate (yet competitive) spirit. He loved a good game of “42” but he sure hated to lose…and rarely did.
