Chris and the staff at Holt Funeral Home did an amazing job in helping us the with funeral preparations for Charles Vachon. Beginning with our initial call to Holt, we knew right away we made the right choice selecting a funeral home. From the setting to the service, there was no need to worry about details because they handled it all!! Just as important is the fact that they returned our calls, answered our many questions and handled all paperwork. Thanks to Holt for going above and beyond making a stressful time manageable for us.
The Vachon Family
Thank you so much to the staff of Holts for making the hardest week of our lives as stress free as possible. They were amazing from start to finish with suggestions, professionalism and empathy. Their recommendations for flower shops, video tribute and post funeral assistance made the process of celebrating our dad so much easier. We would like to express a special thank you to Chris Todd for going above and beyond to make our family feel comfortable. The attention to detail of our needs was unexpected and beyond appreciated. Thank you.
Though we knew this day would eventually come, we were not prepared to grieve the loss of dad through these uncertain times with COVID-19. There was so much of his life we wanted to share and celebrate, as well as many who wanted to say good-bye, and couldn't. Faced with these obstacles, the wonderful staff at Holt recognized this, and went above and beyond to put together a service that honored and celebrated dad, while respecting social distancing. We could not have been more pleased and appreciative with the final result; as we laid dad to rest. The tribucast that was live streamed allowed many of our loved ones and friends to be present. A very special thanks to Chris, for his professionalism, as well as Veronica, Laura, Jim, and Anne. We are forever grateful for what you have done.
My dear friend, Virginia Cooke, recently passed unexpectedly. Ginny never married or had children, so as the "daughter she never had", I took on the responsibility to handle her final arrangements. Three weeks passed from my first meeting with Amy and Laura until the day of the service. During this time, the staff handled every detail for me that needed taken care of. As I live more than two hours away, this was a big relief. The staff was always available to me, including evenings and weekends. In addition to the logistics, the staff went above and beyond adding personal touches I did not expect. I truly can not thank Curtis J. Holt Funeral Home enough for everything each member of their staff did for me and the care and support they provided. I do not know how I could have done this without you. I am forever grateful.
I would like to thank all the staff at Holt Funeral Home for their help guidance and support through this difficult time. A special thanks to Chris who was there for myself as well as my brother and grandparents guiding us throughout this process. Also Ann who help with the aftercare support and finalizing what had to be done after the funeral was over. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day for my father and this was all thanks to Holt funeral home and there staff.
Mom passed in early January of 2020. While it was a blessing, it was a very sad time for our family. The family at Holt’s helped us through each step of the process. They listened carefully and were attentive to small details that we wanted included in Mom’s service. The cosmetologists did a fantastic job enabling us to have an opened casket where we thought is would need to be closed. Thanks so much for the caring way in which you prepared, carried out, and followed through with Mom’s services. Sincerely, the O’Donnell family

We want to express our deep appreciation and gratitude to Cindy and the entire Holt Staff for your compassion, patience, and guidance handling our mom’s funeral arrangements. Nothing was overlooked from the pre-planning stages through the smallest of details associated with the funeral. You literally took the weight off our shoulders.
We were especially impressed with Amy’s creation of a ‘family portrait’ for mom’s Memorial Card, the beautifully assembled video production and Amanda and Jim’s forethought to have a back-up plan in place should the antique lead car (Irma) grow weary on the long journey to the cemetery.
Thank you again for making it possible for mom to have the beautiful tribute she was so deserving of!

My brother and I would like to thank the staff at Holt Funeral Home for their kindness, compassion, and attention to detail in planning our father's funeral service. Everything was handled perfectly and was exactly what we wanted. Their patience and professionalism made this difficult time easier for the whole family.
Thank you to Autumn and your whole staff. You took care of everything for my family and me. You were all very caring, patient, and professional. You called to see how I was doing and offered support for not only during the funeral, but after the service. I am truly grateful.
How comforting it was during such a sad time to have Cindy Noble and her professional staff at Holt's not just tend to our needs but anticipate them. Nothing went unnoticed. Everything was perfect in every way....how our arrangements turned into a dignified tribute to our mother, how every facet was managed with care and genuine concern, how we were never rushed or not heard. The attention to detail is so evident in just how the staff presents themselves to the guests during visitation, all dressed the same with even the men having the same tie on. The funeral home itself is just beautiful, inside and out. Many of the guests from out of town commented on the colorful plantings, urns and window boxes spilling over with flowers. It's just such a beautiful, calming setting. My mother would have been very pleased with how her final goodbye was so professionally well done. Our profound thanks to all of the Holt's staff for their services and for making it all happen for our Mom.

My husband of 32 years passed very suddenly and I had no idea what to do. I chose Curtis J. Holt Funeral home and was extremely impressed with the compassionate, professional and caring individuals at this organization. From the funeral directors, Chris and Autumn to the coordinator Amy and the videography company they work with. They all made this very sad time less stressful as they handled all details extremely well and efficiently.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
