The Roanoke Leader August 1913

NEWSPAPER issue of Wednesday, August 13, 1913


After a long illness, Mr. S.J. Holder died at 9 o'clock this morning at the home of his father, W.M. Holder in Roanoke. He was an excellent gentleman, and was tax assessor-elect of Randolph county. He leaves a wife and three children, parents, brothers and sisters, who have many sympathizing friends throughout the county. The interment will be at Lebanon tomorrow.



One of the largest and most representative congregations ever assembled at Lebanon church was present last Thursday afternoon to witness the funeral services over the remains of the lamented S.J. Holder. The services were in charge of Revs. M. Earnest and W.P. Cofield who made feeling and effective remarks. The body was then laid to rest.

Mr. Holder died at the same place where he w s born nearly 36 years before, the home of his father, in the suburbs of Roanoke, where the latter was also born. In his comparatively brief life he had impressed himself most favorably upon all who knew him. This was reflected in his election to one of the most important offices in the county. Had he lived, he would have rendered his people still greater service.

In his personal life, Joe, as his friends called him, was a perfect gentleman and a consistent christian. As a teacher he touched the lives of many young people for good. He has left his wife and three children the heritage of a good name. They will make their home in Wedowee.
