Franklyn Dale Holley

July 7, 1928 — March 6, 2022

Franklyn Dale Holley, born 7 July 1928, near Licking, Missouri, second son of Byron and Katie Holley, “moved upstairs” (from one of his sermon illustrations about heaven) on March 6, 2022, while living with his daughter Rachel in Marion, KY. Dale graduated from Houston (MO) High School, 1945, Oklahoma Baptist University 1954, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1957 (M.Div.) and 1962 (PhD). He was pastor of churches in Kentucky, Wisconsin, Alaska and Colorado, plus several Army Chaplain assignments during his military career.

Dale married the love of his life, Marye Nadine Kennedy, Schell City, MO on 2 June 1950, for whom he has grieved since her death August 21, 2017. They are survived by their three children (Tom, Rachel, and Betsy) and five grandchildren (Will, Claire, Jordan, Sam, and Jacob) of whom he was very proud.

Dale and Marye will be interred together in the Pike’s Peak National Cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colorado at a later date.

Dale was especially thankful for the comfort and loving attention he received from his companion sitters in Marion and Colorado Springs who assisted Rachel in his last days.

In lieu of flowers or donations, Dale requested that you support your local congregation. The International Mission Board or the North American Missions Board of the Southern Baptist Convention are good alternatives.
