William Harry Holmes was the son of John Nilsson Holmes and Ida May McKinney. He married Julia Handzo in 1928 and had 5 children. The first child, Barbara Jean Holmes, lived only 5 days and died of pneumonia. The remaining four - all boys - were Harry John Holmes (1932), Robert Leroy Holmes (1934), Richard Dean Holmes (1936) and Kenneth Eugene Holmes (1940). Known for most of his life as "Harry", he was the owner of an automobile dealership, a car repair garage, and a gasoline station. He became very active in the Farmington Methodist Church following the death of his mother in 1951 and virtually took a year off from his business to build a substantial wing to the church. The wing was named in his honor sometime following his death.
