Mr. Larry Wayne Holland, 75 of Graham, NC passed away on Friday January 8, 2021 at his residence. A native of Alamance County, NC. He was the son of the late John T. Holland and Nora Whisenant Phillips. Larry was a proud Veteran of the US Air Force serving God and his country. He was a man who always put others' needs above his own. Over the years he had touched so many lives of all ages as his way and wisdom was valued by all. Larry was an avid supporter of the Graham High School Boosters, Southern Alamance High School Boosters and Cummings High School Boosters, whatever school his children or grandchildren attended he was always there lending a hand. Larry was retired and had worked many years as a salesman in the HVAC industry. Over the years Larry enjoyed his family trips to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, the Bahamas, but the Myrtle Beach trips were always his favorite as he loved to dance to beach music with his beautiful wife. He was a diehard Tar Heel fan as nothing was more important than the game except for maybe a John Wayne western. Larry loved to take his grandchildren fishin’ any chance he could but was known by many to be “Paw Paw”. Larry was a man who always had a smile on his face and had a quick joke so that others around him would smile as well. Survivors include his loving wife, Linda Stinson Holland; his girls, Nickie Holland and Dawn H. Bowman and husband Mike; grandchildren, Austin-Michal Bowman, Evan Bowman, and Josh Snyder; his great grandson, Jaxon Snyder; Godsons, Williams Snyder and wife Erin and Phillip Snyder and wife Sarah; nephews, Tyler Holland and wife Leslie, Jamie Holland and wife Tangie, and Michael Allison and significant other Vickie; a niece, Christie Hall and significant other Brad and his brother and sister in law, Roger and Jean Allison. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by a brother, Danny Holland.
