Sunny Holland

Kenneth Edward “Sunny” Holland, 76, of Garrison, went to Paradise to be with our Lord on Saturday, October 2, 2021.

He was born at Maysville on April 9, 1945, a son of the late Thomas Daniel Holland and Mildred Spriggs Schreck.

Sunny worked as a welder and carpenter. He was a member of Catlettsburg Laborer’s Local #1445, and a member of Teamsters Local 92. He was a jack-of-all-trades. Sunny was proud to be a Kentucky Colonel. He enjoyed building, and wasn’t afraid of hard work. He loved gardening and spending time with his dog, Diesel. He enjoyed driving around Lewis County in his side-by-side. He loved all wildlife and the changing of the seasons.

Many other family and friends also survive who will mourn his passing.

Sunny was preceded in death by one son, Kenny Holland; one brother Steven Thomas Holland; and three sisters, Margaret Holland, Ellen Logan, and Sheila Claxon.

Pallbearers will be Kenny Holland, Jacob Osborne, Ernest Corns, Mike Justice, Hunter Gilliam, and Trina Holland.
