In memory of
Jerry Allen Holden
Jerry Allen Holden June 11, 1938 - June 6, 2021 Carmel, California - Jerry passed away suddenly from an aggressive form of melanoma of the liver. His family was by his side, and all are feeling sadness and shock beyond belief. Jerry was born in Lompoc, CA to Mildred and Ted Holden. During his high school years he spent every summer at the Bixby Cattle Ranch as a "working cowboy." After graduation from high school he joined the Navy and spent two years traveling through the Pacific. After finishing his tour he enrolled in Fresno State University, where he met the love of his life, Esta. They went on to celebrate 60 years of marriage that produced 3 amazing children and 6 perfect grandchildren who adored him. Jerry was an entrepreneur who was never afraid of "starting something new." The latest was when Jerry and Esta moved from Fresno after residing there for 33 years to begin SignWorks together in Monterey. They owned the business for over 17 years before fully retiring in Carmel-by-the Sea. Jerry was loved by all who knew him, and his stories were a part of any social gathering, along with his famous Manhattans. Jerry loved his fly fishing and high Sierra trips, leather making hobby, and pickleball with all the friends he made became a big part of his life. He is survived by his loving children, Brett (Charlotte), Brenda (Brad), Denise (Chris). Also survived by his grandchildren Sarah, Joe, Haley, Holden, Nathan, and Matthew, along with his adorable dog and constant companion, Lucy. Service to celebrate Jerry's life will be held at Carmel Presbyterian Church at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 17th. In lieu of flowers, donations to American Cancer Society will be greatly appreciated.
