For 25 years he lived in Sacramento, Calif., where he was a custodian at a high school and worked for Standard Oil Co., then lived in Dexter for 15 years and was a truck driver for ITT. He moved to Stewartville seven months ago. Mr. Holets was a member of American Legion Post 551 of Eyota and the Chatfield VFW. He enjoyed fishing and hunting.
