Will Dean Holland, 61, of Saint Marys, and formerly of Decatur, Alabama, died 4:42 A.M. Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at Lima Memorial Hospital, Lima, Ohio.

He was born October 10, 1958, in Tuscumbia, Alabama, the son of Robert and Mary (Hames) Holland, Sr.

He married Tammie Laymon in Decatur, Alabama, and she survives at the residence in Saint Marys, Ohio.

He is survived by a son, Logan Galvez of Saint Marys.

Will Dean was a veteran of the US Army, and recently retired from Continental Manufacturing in Saint Marys. He loved all kinds of sports, but especially golf. He was a big fan of the Alabama Roll Tide football team and he never met a person he didn’t like. He was dearly loved by his friends and family.

Will Dean’s family would like to add these words of comfort to his obituary: 

As blue eyes look upon heaven’s door,

Jesus opens the gate with warm, loving arms.

As blue eyes fill with tears,

Longing after those left behind,

Jesus smiles and speaks softly,

“Welcome Home, Will Dean Holland,

And suffer no  more”.
We love you brother!
