Larry Holt

Larry D. Holt, 75, of Wilson, passed away on November 9, 2022 after an extended period of illness.

He was born in Loris, South Carolina on September 5, 1947 to Mildred and Newton Holt. 

His career as a tobacconist began on his family’s farm, eventually leading him to Wilson, NC and to jobs with Standard Commercial, Universal Leaf and AOI. After his retirement, he started his own company.  

Larry met Carolyn Saunders and they married in 1979, enjoying forty-three years together.

He was a lover of travel and experiencing other cultures. A perfect night was a great bottle of wine, a fine cigar and wonderful conversation with friends. His career as a tobacconist afforded him time to travel and experience much of the world.

He was preceded in death by his son, Larry Daniel Holt (36); brother, Jim Holt; mother, Mildred Holt and father, Newton Holt. 

Larry is survived by his wife Carolyn Holt and his daughter, Kristie Campbell (Stephen). 

There will be a private celebration of life at a later date. 

Memorials are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Pl. Memphis, TN 38105.

Arrangements by Wilson Memorial Service, Wilson,, 252-237-7171.
