Delbert Donald Wayne Holding

A memorial service will be 4 pm, Saturday, January 24, 2015, in remembrance of the Life of Delbert Donald Wayne Holding, at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home.

He passed away on Saturday, January 17, 2015, in Burlington, KS.

Delbert was born in Parsons, KS on December 27, 1988, to Robert Glenn Holding and Kandy Jean Brown (Lipp). Though the gift of him was given to them, Delbert was born to many more than just his parents that day.

Mr. Holding grew to be a fine young man, touching and changing many lives forever. Even to this sad day Delbert has managed to help and change people’s lives. He was a family man and was one of the best friends you could ask for, nothing meant more to him than his family.

Delbert was extraordinary father and gave all he had to his baby girl, Maya Jean Holding, to anybody that knew him, that’s not a surprise. Delbert had years of practice being a wonderful uncle, having over a dozen nieces and nephews, having that rare ability to let his inner child shine. This is what set Delbert apart from many men.

Mr. Holding was a family man. He loved his brothers with a passion that can’t be denied, but Delbert’s love extended well beyond just his brothers. He had many siblings, all of whom he loved and wanted to be close to.

He was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, grandson, and most of all friend. He loved all with as much heart and joy that often came to define him.

Delbert is survived by his mother and father, daughter Maya Jean Holding; two grandmothers Virginia Thomas (Groninger), Jane Pease; brothers David and Tayna Pennewell and children, Ali and Aubrey, Benjamin and Jolynn Pennewell and children, Mckenzie, Taiya, Landen, Emma, Destiny, Jonathan and Debilene Brown and children, Thiana, Amelia, Alila, Kalia, Naria, Darrell Lipp and children, Windy, Ellie, Brother R.J. Holding , Sammy Holding, Briar Holding, Layton Holding, Sister Ashleah Holding and family. Aunts Lori Mizell and her children Cody Alicia, Dawna Holding and daughter Courtney. Uncles Donald Cannon, Troy Torneden and children, Caleb and Carlee, Floyd Gardere and children Melissa Childers, Jennifer Butler, Mindy, Virgil Holding Jr. and children Chris, Contessa, and Brandon.

He is preceded in death by his grandfather Virgil Holding Sr., uncle Delbert Holding, aunts Gina Gardere and Christine Torneden, cousin Chasity Mizell and beloved friend Gage Hauk.

Delbert’s family is much more than that, he had immense love for his friends, and gave his whole heart to everyone. Delbert was the one that made you smile. If you needed him, he was that shoulder. To many, Delbert was that once in a lifetime friend.

Though fun having at heart, Delbert was known to enjoy his solitude as much as his family. He loved to just sit and Read. He also loved to fish. Sometimes he liked to read and fish. Delbert enjoyed music, his favorites being from the 80’s, but by far didn’t limit himself to one genre. Delbert had that rare talent to catch every word of every song every line of every movie. He would often quote movies, songs, and books. He’d often catch that right quote, at just the right moment. That was just Delbert, Making everyone smile.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Delbert Donald Wayne Holding memorial fund, sent in care of the funeral home.
