Paul Holtman

Paul Allen Holtman of Otsego, Michigan, was taken home peacefully to the Lord surrounded by his loving family on Monday, June 11, 2018.

Paul was born on April 28, 1940 in Kalamazoo to Claus and Ruth (VerHage) Holtman. He graduated from Richland High School. Paul married Connie Hurley on October 24, 1959 at the Plainwell United Methodist Church. He owned Holtman Chevrolet in Gobles, Michigan. Paul enjoyed his time outdoors waterskiing, fishing, hunting mushrooms, and especially deer hunting. He was a true sportsman, playing basketball and softball on the church league as well as racquetball. Paul was a man of faith and a lifelong member of the Twin Lakes Reformed Church in Kalamazoo. He teased his grandchildren lovingly by giving them silly names, stealing food off their plates, and getting in trouble with grandma until she would twist his ear and throw him in the pool. They loved it!

Paul is survived by his wife of 58 ½ years, Connie; daughters, Jill (David) Reyes, Vicki (Jay) Dunham, Dawn (Dennis) Brown and Ana (Dale) Hedberg; grandchildren, Heather Kiel; Cody Bonnell; Bailey Ray; Alexandra Pilch; John, Holt, and Skylar Dunham; Kendra, Emily and Dylan Brown; Levi, Asher and Vanessa Hedberg; great grandchildren, Peyton Brown and Alex Kiel; siblings, Art (Phyllis) Holtman, Grace Demi and Jean (Burt) Adam.
