Passing of Kirk Oberholtzer

Posted by gtaylor on Jul 23 2016 - 8:55pm

It is with a very sad heart that we inform you of the death of our friend Kirk Oberholtzer. Kirk was active in our district for many years. He had retired to Chino Valley, Arizona several years ago to be near his youngest son, David.  Services will be held in Arizona this Saturday.  If you are interested in attending please contact Becky Roach ( eaglemom3x@gmail.com ) for details.  A memorial in Orange County is being planned for August or Septempber.  The family has set up a Go Fund Me account.  gofundme.com/2fc8b8s
