Obituary for Kenneth Holgate

Kenneth "Kenny" Richard Holgate, Sr age 85 of Staples, formerly of Mora, passed away on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, at Lakewood Care Center in Staples. Kenneth was born on June 25, 1934 in Minneapolis to Kenneth W. and Gerda (Wuertz) Holgate.

Kenny served in the United States Army from 1957 to 1962. The years he was stationed in Mainz, Germany supplied him with funny stories he told for years. He and his first wife, Myrt, had three children, Kenny Jr, Korine, and Kyle. Kenny worked as an auto mechanic at Harold Chevrolet in Bloomington, MN for 25 years.
He married Eunice Gade on March 17, 1975. Together, they made many wonderful memories while travelling, snowmobiling, and motorcycling. Kenny also enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Eunice; children: Kenny, Jr (Pam) of Wolf Lake, MN, Korine (Mike) Leonard of Mission, Texas, and Kyle (Teri) of Sandstone, MN; sister, Georgine “Pinky” (Richard) Holland of Glen Lake, MN; grandchildren: Kris (Courtnee) Swanson, Andrea (Levi) Yliniemi, Amanda (Neil) Aho, Hal (Kristina) Croak, Michael Croak and Ashley (Nathan) Reynolds; 23 great grandchildren; and dear friends, David and Barbara Cardinal of Oak Grove, MN.

Kenny is preceded in death by his parents.

A memorial service for Kenny will be held at a later date.
