Donald R. Holman, born on March 17, 1933 passed into the loving arms of his Savior on February 5, 2024 at the age of 90. Donald was surrounded by his wife and family these last weeks as he journeyed to his final resting place.
Donald was a noble man and one with an unwavering faith and a character that filled every facet of his life while here on earth. He married his sweetheart, Jeanne Perreault, on October 7, 1956. Together they built a home, by his own hands, in the small community of Greenville, New Hampshire in July of 1958. They raised 5 children in their home which he continued to “add on” to over the years. Their commitment to family and community was strong and their home has always been a place of celebration, joy, and open to many gatherings over six decades.
Donald is survived by his wife Jeanne of 67 years, his children Theresa Laperle and her husband Richard, Christine, David and his wife Kim, Gary and his wife Eileen, Denise Chatel and her husband Lou, along with their grandchildren, Nathan Laperle, Sarah Laperle, Maria Wright and her husband Joshua, Myles Holman and his wife Meredith, Emma Atwood and her husband James, Joseph Holman and his wife Emily, Bennett Holman, Adam Holman, Justin Holman, and Brock Holman as well as the treasured gifts of 6 great-grandchildren.
