Robert T. Holden
Odessa, NY
Passed away peacefully surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer on Friday, June 19, 2020 at the age of 50. He was born on December 15, 1969, a son of Thomas and Judy Segar Holden. Bob graduated from Horseheads High School in 1989 and served his country honorably with the US Army. He was a business manager with IBEW Local 139 and was a member for over 21 years. Bob was also a member of the Big Flats American Legion and the Montour Falls Moose Lodge. Bob was an amazing Dad, Uncle, Husband and Grandpa. He loved the lake, golfing, the union, his family and friends. He had a zest for life and was always the life of the party. He was very kind and generous. He has touched so many lives both personally and professionally. He was always willing to lend a hand and give back to his community. He has left a void that no one will ever be able to fill. He never gave up and fought to the end, heaven has gained an angel. He is predeceased by his grandparents Eugene and Mary Elizabeth Holden and Robert and Hilda Segar. Bob is survived by his wife, Robin Spaulding Holden; children, Matthew Holden (Mikaila Dennison), Lindsay Holden, Mark (Stephanie) Thoman, Derek (Jessica) Thoman, and Taylor (Curtis) Wilson; grandchildren, Logan, Harper, Reagan, and Tessa; siblings, Jennifer Holden, Michael (Colleen) Holden, Jason (Stephanie) Holden; nieces and nephews, Zachary (Christina), Marissa, Katelyn and Josh; and several extended family members, friends, neighbors and his “best buddy” Codey. Relatives and friends are invited to Sullivan’s Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St. at Rt. 13, Horseheads, NY on Friday, June 26, 2020 from 10-1PM. As all are welcomed, we will be adhering to NYS regulations for social distancing. Bob will be interred at Woodlawn National Cemetery with military honors at the convenience of the family. “The family” would like to extend their thanks to Dr. Gosain,Sandy Brewer, Julie Nichols and the whole staff at Corning Cancer Center for their care, kindness and friendship over the last two years. And also to all his IBEW brothers and sisters for their continued support. In lieu of flowers please consider donations in Bob’s memory to a veterans service or a charity of ones choice.
