Obituary of Daniel Aaron Holly

Daniel Aaron Holy was born on October 24, 1979, in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Lynn and Darla Holly. He passed away on Friday, December 24, 2021, at the age of 42. Daniel graduated Collinsville High School in 1999. He was enrolled in courses at the Texas Baptist Church Institute & Seminary. Daniel served as a Law Enforcement Chaplin, Criminal Justice Chaplin and was employed at Kindercare as an Elementary Care Instructor. He was a member of South Lakewood Baptist Church. Daniel was one of the few who grew up but not “old”. Forever young at heart, he enjoyed working with kids and could bring out the kid in most people easily. He enjoyed watching OU football and would text during the games with his sister and dad. Among sharing Bible verses daily, he amused himself and others by continually sharing jokes and puns on Facebook. It wasn’t uncommon for comment threads to go on for hours or days. He loved to write and aspired to be an author. He was always great with words and could provide comfort and encouragement easily. He wrote his brother faithfully during his deployment to encourage him. He loved his nieces and nephew dearly and enjoyed when he could just hang out with them and catch up. Daniel loved the Lord. He would take any opportunity to share his faith. More than anything in this world, his heartfelt desire was that everyone he came in contact with would have a personal relationship with Jesus. It didn’t matter how well he knew you; his goal was to shine a light and point you to the Cross. Daniel is survived by his dad, Lynn Holly, and wife Debbie of Sapulpa, OK.; sister, Jeanna Crawford and husband Cody of Owasso, OK.; brother, David Holly and wife Jenny and daughter Kimber of Wills Point, TX.; nephew, Austin Richards and wife Kinsey of Tulsa, OK.; niece, Ashlee Swyden and husband John of Sapulpa, OK.; grandmother, JoAnn Holly; multiple aunts, uncles and cousins. Daniel is preceded in death by his mother, Darla Holly and grandpa, Jack Holly.
